Hi there lotters, A couple of hours ago i was checking one of the hospitals that i was gunning a special training for and i was able to pass by an old woman living on the streets and a young tall guy gave her some freshly cooked home made food. It was nice, im not that generous kind since i've never been like that all my life but i guess i need to change my ways so that my personal struggle to be a better person would be complete. Add being helpful and compassionate to others misfortunes is another thing i think i need to add to me. How bout you guys any life changing phenomenon ever happened to you lately? That made you think about changing your life's ways.

Timely question. Yes, I just realized one thing that I badly needed to change. I need to spare a little reservation with people around me. I easily trust people and most of the time brings me few troubles. So from now on, I have to lessen it, and put some space/gap to everyone.

Hi bro. Have a great weekend jogging. I've noticed that I lost a lot of opportunities that were standing in front of me. I mean I didn't grab it because I thought it was any good at all. But later I found out that the opportunity I lost turned out to be something I was after. Now, I have changed my way. I want to force myself to take whatever stands in front of me. If I had taken all those golden opportunities, I would be somebody different by now.

Hey there bro, I have the same dilemma but you know what i do is just try to make the best out of what i have now , and now is better. There are some days were in you think that life would had been very very different if ever we have done something differently back in the past but i guess we stick with our decisions that made us who we are now and if there be need just try to change our ways for good.

There hasn't been any life changing phenomenon lately in my life but I have been raised by my parents to always be helpful to others who are less fortunate and to try and do as many good deeds as you can. So,, I try to help others in any way that is possible for me and I try to be nice with others.

Hey there mariab2000, Wow then your parents has groomed you properly, it is nice when parents are great influence to there children. It kinda shows when the kids grow up to be kind and helpful people. Anyway let us try to keep on helping others the best way that we know how because trying to help is great, uplifts the should and refreshes our belief in ourselves that we are human.

Hey, not really a life changing phenomenon but more like I want to change my life and be better to other people. I don't really support beggars, because a lot of them use children to beg for money and other can work, but they just prefer to beg instead. Instead I thought about treating better other people, for example my family, friends, even strangers. I sometimes think about " Did meeting me today made his day better ?" If the answer is no, keep trying.

Hi there vertu007, That is very nice of you just making sure that other people know that youve made them feel fine today or helped them in some big or small way would really make a difference could be to you or to there world. I guess i should be more like that, a person that thinks of how i could have made someone else's day instead of thinking about how someone can lift my spirit. Take care...

This kind of generosity seems to be disappearing as everyone gets more modern. But, the incident you just said reminds me there are still people who care, not pretending, really care! I try my best to help people. After you help someone, you get this feeling of self-satisfaction. That feeling drives you to repeat your actions, making you a better person. For me, I didn't witness any life-changing phenomenon, just small acts of selfishness and greed that has motivated me to change altogether. So, help others without expecting some sort of payment or repayment and wonders will occur even if you do not see them! :)

Hey there vvance, It is quit sad to see that our advancements lead us to becoming people who think in a in not a advanced way, this has been a problem for way to long and has been even a problem for even before Jesus was born and yet we still don't know what to do and some people still are not helpful thousands of years later, but in our on way let us try to and be the change this new and advanced world needs.

I'm really glad there are still some nice and generous people out there. It does give me a little bit of hope for humanity. Of course, the saddest thing is that the nice and generous are the exception rather than the rule. And that is a shame, but sadly, pretty much expected. I think that is why we notice when someone actually goes out of way to be nice. Whether or not we marvel out how someone can be this good, or are suspicious about what their motives are truly are. Still there are just many acts of kindness out there that are just about to put a smile on my face and just brighten my entire mood. So really the fact that people still are out there, really still exist, are just great. There have been times where the kindness that others have exhibited really did brightened a lot about my day and really did lead me to believe that there is some hope, some great actions right out there. It just proves that there is not complete darkness out there.

Hey there megamatt, It just great, to know we are still human and not numb, to the bad things happening to society and the always self preservation crap, anyway what we can do is just try to do things for others may it be big or small and try to stay away from darkness and also help others leave that darkness. Lets be good, take care.

Hubby and I has different ways in being generous. I am the type who will give food and money to the person that I think that needed help. I am accommodating as well. But hubby on the other hand is not like that. He is not that quick to give money or offer food or accommodate people to hi house, but he is more generous of giving time and advises and making you more comfortable when you are with him. Well, basically I'm not that type of person.

Hi there leeandrew, People really are commonly different in becoming generous but i guess the main thing here is giving what you can to others may it be on the financial or material aspect i guess it is all fine as long as you are willing to help.
