People that Need to Hear "Thank You"

Updated on December 8, 2010

A Good Deed

   Most decent people do good things, because they're innately good people. Not being a religious man at all, I do know that many scriptures teach us to do good for good- we shouldn't even need to take credit for such, but do so anonymously when possible.

Well, I didn't learn that from any text. I help people- friends, strangers, and everyone in between because it makes me feel good- not my ego- but my heart. No, I haven't always been this way, and I'm no better than anyone else because of it. Recently, I've done some things for people that are very close to my heart. I often do things without imposing any conditions at all. That's a character flaw in my book; imposing conditions, that is. Although lately, I have decided one thing. These things that I've done are contingent upon NEVER, EVER speaking of it again. I am owed nothing.

To me, this is the only way I can assure that I'm doing it for the right reasons. Of course I know, but this added step of eliminating that horrid Human Ego is an added plus.

Do good for the sake of good. Anything helps. Making someone happy, whether they need "cheering up" or not should make you happy, too. Humanity's been on a downward spiral for centuries. And particularly in the United States (relax, I LOVE my country) where instant gratification, capitalism, return on investment, and competition run rampant, a little "Good for the Sake of Good" can go a long way. I'm not the only one disillusioned with mankind. Maybe if more people could do these things the world could become a better place again.

      I think that is so true and couldn't agree more. It makes the heart feel really good. And although we don't do it for anything in return, I been finding good things do come to you anyway. Example, right before I moved back to NY I saw a stressed dad with a car filled with small children broken down, didn't know them but I knew what that must be like so I turned around came back and brought them to school and the dad could fix it. Felt good.

      The 1st week I came back here, my starter went at the worst timing. A little old man and his wife came, tried helping ended up driving me all the way home. Same situation. I ran into him today at the post office, the same place I broke down, tried giving him money, he wouldn't take it, gave me a hug and said you ever need help again I will help. Made me want to be more like that too. It's contagious.

      It could be anything, so simple. You see a little old lady looking up at the top shelf knowing she needs something there, ask her what she'd like, keep an eye on her in the store while your there see if you notice her needing more help.

      You're so awesome for writing this. People need to see that.
