31 single parent tips in 31 days. #26: Say yes

#26: Say yes

I know, I know, yesterday I said “say no.” what I’m suggesting here is that you say yes to opportunities to help you build community. To help others as you would want to be helped. Hear of someone in need? Help her/him out if you can. You can probably do more than you think you can. Does a neighbor parent need before school care so they can get to an early work meeting? Why not help out if you are just going through your morning motions at home with your own kid? Hear of a friend who is sick? Why not double your recipe at dinner and take them half? Meet someone who could use a little pep talk? Why not share your words of wisdom – you could really make their day/week/month. I think if you do for others what you would want done for you, you can make the world a better place in small ways.
