Day 276 - To Serve Man
Three reasons to serve others:
To meet those who need
To retain perspective
To continue to grow
I did not want to serve as a committee member for my group. I was doing enough already working on myself. Do more? Not! But I respected those who asked me to serve, and I began that journey. Immediately I was handed the most menial of tasks, and I was pleased; it meant less for me to worry about. Then I was handed the task I was least likely to choose, and I was not pleased, not at all.
So I find myself in yet again another journey. What will I find out this time? I don't know. But I'm willing to go there, even though I'm mostly exhausted and even though it makes me be more social than I prefer.
Serving others is a way to learn. I'll serve, and serve my own needs thereby even if I don't yet know what they are. Alien apertifs, anyone?
