  1. I don’t spend each day trying to work on good deeds. If an opportunity presents itself and I’m capable, I try to do it. I’m pondering the thought (and no offense intended here) that making a list and checking it twice isn’t a little … self-serving?

    1. I think of it as waking up with intention, to keep alert for opportunities, to get in the habit. For me, in the past, I have not always been alert regularly. Selfishly, it forces me to be more present and aware of the other, outside myself. Why do that? I find in the end, I do benefit. I feel more connected, and someone else has a good moment. It’s like it adds a little more light, giving me a tiny bit of power over the dark side in this world.It is self-serving, but not. Is generosity self-serving? Yes and no. “I get by with a little help from my friends”, and I am showing my appreciation for that, too. Win-win is how I see it.
