Even in the most literal sense, happiness IS cherishing others. The real stuff actually comes from no other place.

Awesome thread Bruce,

People are giving and helping on the other side of the dam too, there's still a dugnad spirit, but they seldom tell anybody outside their own family about their kindness and dignity. Telling other people how kind and dignified you are, is seen as bragging, or as putting nice feathers in the hat to look a little better or in some cases - putting lipstick on the bulldog.

I think sometimes some people forget that posting about this stuff inspires others to follow suit, and therefore is much more valuable than just "Bragging".

I myself try to be nice to everyone, treat my employees with respect, and pay them well... I also have mentored quite a few climbers/snowboarders/sledders but I know I should do more...

"you know, in hindsight i shouldn't have shared about being punched by a client. it probably sounds shocking to people outside of this profession"...

You're working at the Holiday Inn compared to where and who I worked with...

Getting punch by a client/patient ain't no big thang...

LOL!!!...



EDITED:

and in my opinion (and that of MANY others), it's fine to discuss situations, so long as names are left out...

Federal Confidentiality and all...

Re-EDIT:

and tr...

Big time...

Tioga you picked a beautiful screen name for to me a sacred place

What can we do? DO you have a better answer than finding a way to serve? There are those in need wherever one takes the time to look.

We are them and they are us.

Only one person can make a difference

This is a really nice read.

I keep a pair of jumper cables under my seat & am always happy to use them.



One time when i was very young my moms & I were stuck on the side of the highway between Chase & Kamloops in August (hot). The tire on our boat trailer or truck(cant remember, doesnt matter) had blew on the way back from the lake & pops had hitched a ride into town to fix it or something. We're just roasting, waiting sitting on the shady side of the truck & this lady pulls up, gets out & walk up to us all serious. She pulls out a ice cold can of Pepsi & gives it to my mom. My mom says thanks & she tells us to have a good day. My parents never let us drink pop at all. Best fkkin pepsi in my life. That lady taught me something very special.
