Why it’s Not all About Me

We live in a world today surrounded by an egotistical, selfish way of thinking.  It’s me first.  My wants are most important.  What are my needs?  What suits me best? We open the latest glamour magazine on the rack and imprinted on it’s glossy pages are ways to make myself more beautiful, how to make sure my needs are met first.  Me.  Me. Me is the center focus.

What happened to the countless lives around us?  Letting others go first.  Being generous with your time.  Being kind to the elderly. Going the extra mile for someone.  Considering others needs, wants, desires and pleasures before your own.

We live in the age of the Power Woman – a trail-blazing, passionate, strong, determined, with a if-I-want-it-I-get-it attitude.  Although being purposeful and passionate are fine qualities to have in a Lady do we in our quest for success forget those whom we are surrounded by?

Why not be that strong, determined, powerful woman that is also considerate, kind, friendly and filled with compassion for those who she meets?   Don’t forget your lonely neighbour, the helpful shop assistant, the cheery gas-station manager or the paper boy.  Remember their day.  Give them a moment.  Share your joy and double it.
