I watched this for the first time the other night. Wow! Yet another rung on my ladder.
I am astonished at the messages that have come my way lately. I guess it's the way they've been introduced to me that have been so interesting and made them stand out as vitally important.
It's been about a month or so since I've heard from them, but I received a phone call earlier this week saying there was work to be done and could it be done quickly. Perfect! I was on it.
I went to the computer and pulled up the video I was to transcribe. The gentleman being interviewed was no one I knew, and to be honest, when I was done with the video, I still had no idea how he fit into the work I needed to do and the article I needed to write. I knew it was business related, but this interview was so personal and biographical.
I transcribed, hoping that eventually there would be something to work with, but as it neared a close, I figured out that this video wasn't for business, it was for me. I needed to hear and learn from everything this man said.
It was ironic to me that two days later I was introduced to the video above.
I guess what I'm learning is that no matter who I'm spending my moments with, the focus should be on doing for others--giving my time and effort, that's what matters. As long as I do so, the blessings will come.
This gentleman in the video mentioned opportunities to serve. One thing I was struck by was in one story he shared, he went to the woman, after he'd helped her, and said, "Thanks for allowing me to serve you." Wow! Because really, service of others, unselfish service--those times when you expect nothing in return--are the times that bring the greatest blessings in your life. It's just true.
I didn't realize what had just come out of my mouth. It wasn't for that little girl. It was for me.
