I made a poster about one of his quotes as I was so inspired by his wise words that came at a good time. I was worrying about money and feeling guilty about my choices. I was feeling judged by others, defeated and not good enough.
This morning I was reading the artists' Robert and Sara Genn's newsletter http://clicks.robertgenn.com/jim-carrey.php which commented on that video and brought up another one of Jim Carrey's wise quotes which inspired me to create another poster this morning. Who knew such a crazy actor could be so inspiring?
What a good way to look at it! Sharing our talents and skills with others is being of service even if no money is involved. I never thought of it that way. I am trying to do that. Maybe I am on the right path after all!
Serving others does not mean we have to be like Mother Teresa. It doesn't mean lowering ourselves and become a drudge. It doesn't mean working ourselves to an early grave.
Giving of ourselves even in a small way is important. Reaching out to share our special talents gives us purpose and joy. Switching our mindset from "What do I want?" to "What service can I offer?" can make all the difference.
That's one of the reasons I attend church even though I wouldn't say I'm terribly devout. I like the good Christian values about sharing and caring for others and being of service. It reminds me not to be selfish and that it's not all about me.
You are unique and special and the world needs your gifts if you are willing to share them. It doesn't have to be dull drudgery. Make it joyous!
We all gotta serve somebody!
