Doing Something for Others is Great Free Therapy

June 10th, 2007 at 08:42 pm

I definitely find that when I am feeling tired, down, frustrated etc., doing something for someone else is a great mood booster. I have a neighbor who is undergoing chemo for cancer. I asked recently if there was anything that I could do. She knows that I bake and enjoy baking so after first saying no, she said she would actually enjoy some cookies. She said sometimes when she is feeling really sick she craves sugar cookies - her favorite. So, today I had some time and I baked her a batch of sugar cookies. I also made some chocolate chip cookies - some for home and some for her kids. I figured this way her kids would not eat her cookies.

    Yes, I found also this to be true. Service to others is one of the answers to the age old question: "Why are we here?".

    Please pick your cause everyone - the environment, elderly, sick, children, ?
