i honestly don’t remember putting “lifting others” as one of my choices for this weeks blog post and so i didn’t think about it much when normally i always have the pep talk ready in my head. so i decided to go to the great lds.org and there was a message by President Uchtdorf ( read here ) with this great quote.
If we truly love our fellowmen, we extend ourselves to help ‘the poor and the needy, the sick and the afflicted.’ For they who do these selfless acts of compassion and service, the same are disciples of Jesus Christ.
so here are some ways that we can lift others around us:
1// smile. just smile. and truly mean your smile.
2// be understanding not judgmental. don’t judge. don’t judge. don’t judge. only love.
3//pray for opportunities. you might think that you don’t need to pray for opportunities because they are all around you but when you pray he will lead you to the person YOU need to serve and lift.
4// be the person that lifts everyone up. be kind to everyone!
5//mail someone a letter or send them and encouraging text. those make the worst days into great days. so just take a few minutes and tell someone how much you love the.
6// give sincre compliments. i always feel better about myself when i give out compliments. my goal this month is to give 3 a day. make it your goal too.
have a great week!
