Take the opportunity to show your love towards others. Just like the old 60’s tune goes “Put a little love in your heart”, and this stands very true even to this day. After all, love is eternal and a little bit of love goes a long way.
The Heart Touch Project – Health Care Compassion
- Be an ENCOURAGER rather than a DISCOURAGER
- Offer to baby sit for friends/family one night so they can go out on a “date”.
- Tell those that you love, “I love you”.
- Mail an uplifting card to someone down in the dumps.
- Show your care and interest in a person who’s pouring out their guts to you.
- Be a good listener. Don’t jump to offer advice- just listen.
- Make a pot of homemade chicken soup for someone who is too sick to cook.
- Don’t hesitate to offer a compliment.
- Write a letter to a special someone.
- Give a call to an elderly relative to just say “Hi”.
- Volunteer at a hospital or nursing home.
- When you offer to help a person in their time of need, don’t say “If there is anything I can do, just call” because most of the time they will not call you. Instead follow up on your offer by contacting them personally to offer your assistance.

More Than the Sum
Giving and receiving. The emphasis is on giving; the surprise is the overflowing return. The paradox is that we are to give without expectations of results. We are to give out of true generosity, not to inflate our ego or plump up our feathers. Our giving is not to make ourselves “look good.” When we are the recipient of another’s gift, we must not protest, “oh, you shouldn’t have! I simply cannot except that.” When you fight to pick up the check at the restaurant, you are denying another’s chance to be a gracious giver. Rather, accept the gift wholeheartedly with gratitude. Sometimes we are the giver sometimes the receiver. Both positions require open hearts that allow love to flow in both directions in good measure. When we get the rhythm right, we experience an abundance that is more than the sum of the parts. Today, be open to the opportunities to be both the giver and receiver!
