Challenge Myself: Day #156 Provide Help When You Can

Today is Day #156 of the Nar Anon Group Just For Today Challenge. I am also integrating the Live Happy into my Challenge. The Live Happy Challenge for today says to help another traveler in distress.

The book says,

If you notice a distressed visitor trying to figure out a map or the direction to his destination in area familiar to you, offer to help him/her. Point them in the right direction.

When you give directions, write them on a card or carefully explain the distances, turns and notable landmarks.

Communicate as clearly as possible. Nothing is more frustrating and, in some cases, frightening than to be lost in a new city or in an unfamiliar place.

Be the person you would like to meet if that happened to you. Who knows? Your distressed traveler may be inspired by your kindness to one day help another in the same way.

Remember that old adage about how one good turn deserves another. It's one way happiness can be spread.

Have you ever been asked to give directions? Have you ever been traveling in an area and needed directions? Maybe you were visiting an area you know well and was able to provide help to someone needing directions?

Just For Today: Remember the quote, "One Good Deed Deserves Another?" You never know when you will need someone to help you in a time of distress.
