We get it, you’re busy. You, just like the other billions of people in this world, have your own agenda, tasks to be completed and errands to run. We’ve all got to get something done for ourselves and our worlds. But what if we took some time to help someone else check something off of their list?
Every weekend I see a lot of weddings and with that comes a lot of happy brides and grooms celebrating their special day. We all know how hard they probably worked to make sure their wedding goes off without a hitch but what about all of the other people in the bridal party? Bridesmaids and groomsmen are the perfect example of putting others before yourself. They are the unsung heroes of weddings. Sure, a bride could put a wedding together on her own (if she had five years, and a lot of patience) but it’s the help of her bridesmaids that make her job a little easier. Picking out a venue, dresses, caterer and flowers is a lot more fun when you’re doing it with friends.
I think we should all follow the example of bridesmaids and groomsmen in our own lives. Every now and then, we should help someone cross a task off of their list instead of worrying about our own. It’s a gratifying experience to make a difference in someone else’s day because you cared about their needs. It doesn’t matter how big or small, people notice when you’re helping them and expecting nothing in return.
