Make room for others
Look at your calendar. Is it already filled up? Is your life so cram packed with kids, trips, chores, work, and everything else that spontaneous selflessness doesn’t even seem possible? Well, it’s probably not. That doesn’t excuse me from it though. If spontaneous selflessness isn’t an option, plan it. Make room for it. Make it happen.
Put money in your budget to cover someone else’s meal this week. Let your spouse or kids pick what movie you’re going to watch this week. Find the simple things you can easily plan to be selfless with and do them. It isn’t any less heartfelt when it’s planned. Make room in your life and schedule to think about someone else.
