Happy Rowing

I've never met a person who doesn't have a problem. Problems seem to be the stuff of life. And problems become the problems. By that I mean that problems overwhelm us and keep us from thinking about others. Problems blind us to the world around us and make us think of ourselves as isolated and different.

But when we consciously make an effort to look beyond our own problems and reach out to comfort and help others with their problems, our own problems become easier to deal with.

To really Live in Truth we need to get outside our own problems and realize that the Truth is that everyone has problems and we are not in this boat alone. If we can help row the boat for all who are on board (all those around us!) we will get to our destination a lot faster.

So here's to Happy Rowing.
