The best antidote I know for worry is work. The best cure for weariness is the challenge of helping someone who is even more tired. One of the great ironies of life is this: He or she who serves almost always benefits more than he or she who is served. ― Gordon B. Hinckley
Get up and do something … and besides taking care of yourself and your loved ones … reach out and check on others … someone might need something … and if they do, help them or find the right person to help them.
This is the magic formula to not despair.
Help does not necessarily mean giving up a significant amount of time and money … it is “volunteering” information … a connection … a good word … hope.
If you can’t find someone who needs help, think of an area of knowledge, ability or leadership you have, and share it with the world either in writing or in action starting with your family and loved ones.
Do it swiftly, do it without seeking a return, it will change your life.
