I was elevated and lifted reading this line of thought yesterday authored by an acquittance of mine on Facebook.
Since this line of thought is in tandem with “mylittlesimplethought” vision statement, I deemed it necessary and mandatory to seek for an approval from the author to publish it on my blog.
It goes thus:
“There is no better exercise for strengthening the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.
Think about this:
Most of your favorite friends are those who encourage you and you don’t really have many strong relationships with people who put you down.
Most times we avoid them and seek out those who believe in us and lift us up.
Everyone loves to be encouraged.
Now take a pause!
When last did you encourage someone?
When last did you lift someone up with what you have?
When last did you motivate people around you with words from your mouth?
Someone, somewhere is craving for just a moment with you.
Someone, Somewhere is eager to read your line of thought.
Someone, somewhere needs your smile.
It is not difficult to put a smile on someone’s face.
It cost nothing but a little moment.
A fraction of your time is needed by someone.
A fragment of your existence needs to be doled out to the next person sitting beside you.
You can do it.
Without any reward you can elevate others.
According to JRR Tolkien, The fellowship of the rings:
“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us”
It is amazing to know that all of us are bound to pass through a down moment.
A moment whereby we yearn to have people that will listen to our innermost thought and a simple word from somebody around us might be useful to elevate our spirit from depression and the thought of suicide.
According to Ralph Waldo Emerson:
“Our chief want is someone who will inspire us to be what we know we could be”.
People that will apportion a fragment of their time to listen to us are scarce because our world is filled largely with people who shows less concern to the plight of others but once in a while in a blue moon, we might be opportune to come across people that can be described as angels who will sacrifice their comfort and convenience to douse our inconvenience and discomfort.
These are the people that the world is in need of at this moment to salvage the plight of humanity from the doldrum of self-centeredness that makes many to be less concerned about the essence of human existence that boils around a responsibility for everyone to be a brothers’keeper.
No doubt about it, it is not difficult.
We all can stand as a pillar to people around us.
We all can stand as an anchor to people around us that are almost experiencing ship wreckage in the course of their sojourn on earth.
It takes nothing from us but it makes those who are willing to live a selfless and a sacrificial life to be remembered in the annals of human history no matter the littleness of their contribution in lifting others around up from the miry clay of challenges.
You help yourself when you help others.
