I had a whole write-up planned about Valentine’s Day, and the importance of focusing on self-love, as well as other types of non-romantic love. Then I received this video from a friend this morning. It is about acts of kindness that cannot be reciprocated, at least not at the time they are given.
I am not affiliated with Microsoft, except as a customer using their Windows and Office products, and a couple of friends who work there. I am however strongly affiliated with anyone or any group that thinks beyond themselves and reaches out to those who cannot give them anything in return. It is not always about money; sometimes time invested is even more important.
As we go about celebrating today, spare a genuine thought for those less fortunate, and ask yourself whether you are truly doing all that you can do for those in your immediate vicinity, no matter how small it may seem.
