Too many times the outward approval of others becomes the goal of our actions instead of being true to ourselves. When we seek the approval of others, we are saying that we are not good enough, and that we need others to validate our worth. My mother would remind us that when you do something for another person, do not stay stuck there waiting on applauses, awards, or anything else. Do it and keep moving.
When we do things from the heart, we are not concerned about another’s reaction, even so much as a “thank you”. Our intentions are in alignment with a higher power and not for show or approval. Our satisfaction comes from the ability to give instead of receiving.
Thank you Mom!
