“If you become a helper of hearts, springs of wisdom will flow from your heart.” – Rumi
An anticipated well-spring of enjoyment is bubbling up inside me as I think about the place I’ve recently signed-up to volunteer. I look forward to getting my hands and heart into it now that spring is here.
Doing something for the benefit of others increases the “happiness effect” in our own lives. It takes us outside of ourselves reaping great internal rewards. As like with many who offer their time in service to others, I usually can’t contain the fountain of intrinsic blessings that come forth from my efforts.
I’m sure you’ll be hearing more from me as I get involved, I’ll probably get all pumped up with enthusiasm for what I am doing. If you have leanings toward volunteering, find something you really want to put your heart and soul into.
