Bigger than self

You are fortunate if someone in your growth and development modeled a philosophy that was bigger than yourself.I learned early on that service to others was the way to deep fulfillment and meaning.Nurtured by a family that did not merely spout the belief; they lived it.This was greatly reinforced by the two years I spent being mentored by Viktor Frankl.He once said to me”Greatness lies in dedicating yourself to something bigger than self interest”
.
It is most normal to care about yourself, and to desire a life filled with good things,but adding the dedication to others raises life to a higher plain.This living for others as well as self need not be mammoth in scope because few of us have those opportunities. However, the moments to make a difference are legion within our reach.Today I choose to find at least one way to care about someone that could use a boost, or an indication that someone cares
