by helping others

Sometimes it’s the little things in life that make me get out of bed every day, make me enjoy life and make me happy that I am alive.

It starts with me giving an elderly lady at the bus stop a seat on the bench and she thanks me and I can see the smile in her eyes. If I am helping someone who has just had their luggage fall off the bike. Or I inform the customer in front of me at the checkout that the wallet has fallen out of his pocket.

It is generally the joy that I see in others when I can help them, or at least show that I want to help them.

It is a part of the purpose of life.
