Broaden Your Horizon


This morning I participated in a meeting where all the members present had chosen to be there, to work together for the good of others.  There were law enforcement officials, mental health advocates, spiritual leaders and more. Each brought special gifts, talents, expertise and experience. At our someone said these words; “There’s no competition here, no ‘mine’  or ‘yours’. This is about them and what we can do for them.” All nodded in agreement. It was a blessing to be amongst people who genuinely cared about others.

Later, I had a discussion with someone who did a lot complaining about the aggravating folks in his life. “They’re always getting on my nerves, telling me what to do and what not to do. They won’t leave me alone. Why can’t they just let me do what I want. As long as I’m okay with it, what’s the harm?”

Two conversations, two different approaches to life. One says: “It’s all about me getting what I want .” The other; “It’s about them getting what they need.”
