Make a Deposit

We’ve written before about how, in many ways, you can think of your mental well-being as a bank account:  Keep giving and giving, the account diminishes; have a great success, the account grows.  Of course, that’s simplistic, but the metaphor holds up on a lot of levels.

So using that concept . . . when was the last time you made a payment into somebody else’s account?  

Last week brought a great opportunity for just such a moment.  We recognize that there’s a lot of cynicism about Valentine’s Day, and we understand why.  But it does present quite a good opportunity to make a deosit for someone else.  The well-written card, the “just right” present, the surprise gesture…these are all excellent ways to add value to somebody else’s day.  And the beauty part is that Valentine’s Day is nothing but a reminder of what we should be doing to add value to people’s lives. 

And if we are about anything, it’s adding value.

So today, when you have a spare moment, look around the office or the classroom, and see who needs to have a little value added to their day.  Then, find a way to do it. Go on–try.
