WHAT IS THE ONE THING THAT YOU DO, THAT HELPS YOU BE THE BEST YOU CAN BE?
I am happiest, and feel in my element, when I am doing something for the benefit of other people. After having a very sad and unhappy life for most of my life. I always felt very lost and very disconnected from real happiness. I felt I had no purpose. After reading The Secret my whole life changed for the better. I went on a deep journey into health and wellbeing and discovered that I am really passionate about helping others avoid suffering.
I have learnt in the last few years, that giving, rather than receiving is far better for one’s own internal happiness. I have since written a book, a ‘how to guide’ for improving ones health and family relationships and to hear that it has benefited so many people has brought me a lot of joy.
Even better than this, is that I now spend a lot of time trying to help others out who are far less fortunate. I recently started working with a charity in Uganda, where we support over 200 children, women, and the disabled. Whilst on a recent trip overseas, I was staring at a very expensive pair of shoes, (something I used to have lots of!) yet felt ‘nothing’ for them, and instead thought what if I sent that money to my friend’s (a genuine not for profit) charity Mkwano Mwana (which means ‘Dear Child’).
So I did, I sent over what I had in my bank, about £250 and was told this would feed all of the children and adults every day for the entire month. They often would have days where they would only have sugar cane water to drink until they received more donations. How tragic they have lived like this. Orphans don’t have it easy, especially in a third world country. I received a photo of some of the children with a thank you card that had my name on it and seeing it was truly the BEST feeling ever.
I was hooked – we now have plans to help build a school and homes for the orphanages and I am loving getting other donators on board – recently we had a holistic doctor agree to donating several thousand dollars worth of natural remedies which means they will be able to fight diseases a lot better.
Helping other’s is my life mission and I have never been happier. If you want to be your best and feel it, you can’t go wrong with helping others.
