Sunday Thought

Happy Sunday! I came across this little thought below on Instagram today and I loved the message...

It made me think that throughout our lifetime, we will all achieve many different goals, however, I believe that our greatest accomplishments and our greatest happiness will come from the service we've given to others. No amount of earthly success will mean anything unless we've lived a life of use to others. We are here on earth to make other lives better and to improve the world around us. Our continuous goal should be to make every person that we come in contact with a little bit better.

It's easy to get caught up in our own lives and become pretty self-centered. In fact, I'm reading How to Win Friends and Influence people and Dale Carnegie said: "When we are not engaged in thinking about some definite problem, we usually spend about 95 percent of our time thinking about ourselves". It's so true! It's easy to be self-obsessed, but to find true joy, we must focus on things outside of ourselves. No one finds true happiness until they surrender their ego to the service of their fellow man. "If you're not making someone else's life better, then you're wasting your time. Your life will become better by making other lives better." -Will Smith

Just a little Sunday thought :)

Other things we do on Sunday are bake cookies with these cute kids...

and hang out with our precious nieces and nephews! :)

Oh, how I love them all! Especially adorable little baby Dean :)
