Help Someone Else

“Any good thing… that I can do, or any kindness I can show to any fellow traveler, let me do it now.” – 12 Step Prayer Book 

This reminds me of something I hear at the end of my Wednesday night 7pm Al-Anon meeting in Maui: “When anyone, anywhere, reaches out for help, let the hand of Al-Anon and Alateen always be there, and let it begin with me.” The idea is that, by looking for opportunities to be of service, to help someone out who could use a hand, I can bring happiness and love into both of our lives. And so, rather than just thinking this is a good idea,  I actively attempt to practice this each day. And I’ve found that the more I look for, and act on those opportunities, the more ILML!
