“The best portion of a good man’s life is the little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and love.”
~ William Wordsworth (1770-1850) English poet
“The surest cure for loneliness, the quickest way to happiness, is found in this, a simple creed: Go serve someone in greater need.”
~ William A. Ward
Create many small unremembered memories based on acts of kindness and love instead of big remembered memories that are void of love and kindness, and you’ll live a life worth remembering. One thing you can do is to “Whine Less and Give More.” The more I talk about my problems and focus on them, the worse they seem — and the worse I feel. I’ve discovered when I feel bad about my life, I go do something for someone else. Then I feel better. It’s amazing how that works — even if it’s not every time. Go do something nice for yourself by doing something nice for someone today!
