Day 29

Because my Grandparents were getting tired and a bit overwhelmed with the packing, and loading, we had decided to ask my cousin if she wanted to help us for the day. She had got back saying that she had her stuff to do, so she wasn’t able to help us.

I guess I was reminded that you can’t really force someone to help you, no matter how much you would have liked them to help you. Yeah, sure I was disappointed that my cousin didn’t want to help us, but my Grandparents and I were able to help my mom move her things.

Today, I will not force anyone to do anything that they don’t have time for, or just aren’t able to help with. It doesn’t mean that they don’t love us, they still do, I know it. Sometimes people just say “no” for various reasons, and it usually isn’t a reflection of how they feel towards us.

Lending A Helping Hand

I would love to do a quick tidying of my boyfriend’s room, it’s not atrocious but it just needs a little more tender, love and care. He’s been working long days so he doesn’t have a lot of energy to tidy it. I don’t live there so I don’t know where they keep their cleaning supplies.

But I tried my best. I made the bed, put our dishes in the sink and I dusted off his table. Alas I wasn’t certain if the table is water resistant so I didn’t put a lot of water on a Kleenex. Obviously it didn’t thoroughly clean it but the thought was there.

As usual I left him a note on his pillow. I tried some Origami but failed, again, the thought was there.

Today, I will try my best to lend a helping hand. I won’t just lend a hand for someone to return a favour. For that is business. You should lend a hand because it’s in your heart to do so. This person would be grateful for your action, no matter how big or how small your genuine acts are.

Do What Ought To Be Done

If you have the ability to do something don’t let anything stop you. There are people who haven’t developed the skills you have or their skills are slowly weakening from aging or from an accident.

If you can cook a delicious meal then cook! If you can walk to it walk! You can do anything you can put your mind to.

Always be fortunate and appreciative with what you have. Help others who are in need of help.

Today, I will offer help to those who will be happy to receive a helping hand. I will do something now instead of putting it off to a later day. I will try my best to share my knowledge and skills to others. Sometimes by pushing something to a later day you might not get back to it. You have great strength and you will go far when you apply yourself to greatness.
