lesson learned today

I have learned a very valuable lesson today. While I was helping someone today that I have never met, I realized that what started out as an intent to lend a hand to someone, I was the one that received the gift!

I think most will agree that we (addicts) tend to be self centered. I know that I get consumed with “self” and often throw pity parties (bashes really) for myself; my life suks, this suks, poor me, I want to use…blady, blady, blady... If i can just step outside of my narcissistic self and think of others, do for other, my life will be so much better!

Hey there an old saying....you cant out give God....he notice what we do here on earth
and by freely giving to others we often get blessed back 6 fold and your right in a self centered world it is cool to find a place like this that people so freely give of them selfs
this forum practices a lot of Godly principals and reaps the rewards from it
weather there believers or not its the principals that count.....God bless....Gnarly
