“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”  

– Mahatma Gandhi

I believe this quote to be true. And this quote explains better than I ever could what this blog is about. The point of each post is to help weave the practice of serving others into daily life and then to watch how it changes YOUR life.

If I had to boil it down, these are the three points I hope you’ll take from your time here.

  1. Get started. Any level of service effort (even a small one) will hands-down beat out the greatest of great intentions. Don’t worry if your efforts feel too small, just get started.
  2. Be deliberate. You can’t serve everyone or everything. So pick your passion and your priorities then continue to evaluate them over time. For most, there will be no perfect lifelong service calling. You will have to try many things before you find the ones that really inspire you. And even then it may change as you change. Start serving now and the answers will come.
  3. Find yourself. If you start severing others, it will change you. I’m so convinced of it that I don’t think it matters at all where you choose to serve. I started writing this blog because I’m passionate about how lives get changed through the act of serving others. Not the lives of the people you help, but your life. For me, service has made all the difference in helping me get over my preoccupation with myself, get out of my head and on with purposeful living. And it continues to change me daily. Like everyone else, I’m still a work in progress. But I’d like to take the journey with others. So I write here on Tuesdays and Thursdays and I hope you will come join me.
