The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honourable, to be compassionate, and to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well. — Ralph Waldo Emerson
While I was reading through few feedbacks from the volunteers from a renowned college, few insights strike me, though not shocking. The comments were on the level of satisfaction after undertaking the social responsibility project and the enthusiasm to continue the support programs through other non-profit or voluntary organization. The first experience has made an impact in the thoughts of young vibrant youth.
While we focus a lot on self-improvement, it keeps inspiring me, an important part of living is to be happy and fulfilling life includes being part of close-mend community actions where you can share, help and support people you care about. It also includes being kind to strangers, and learning to replace desire and anger with understanding and empathy. While rendering service to others, the inter personal inclination that exist in each one of us awakes in to endow with service to others.
It’s easy to get so wrapped up in fixing your own life that you forget about helping others. And while it’s important to put yourself first sometimes, it’s even more important to help others whenever you can.
Being generous isn't even always about humanity – becoming more generous and compassionate will have real tangible benefits in your own life. While serving others with your little support, spending time with them, sharing the ideas and knowledge, one not only growing brighter and higher but taking others along with their journey.
