Waiting to serve lunch to orphans at the orphanage in India (I am in white top).
My third donation from the sale of my books went to the orphanage that my family supported. We have a birthday on August 15th in our family. Instead of celebrating we donate money/food to orphanage. There are so many hungry souls all around the world. Hope some of them are taken care of.

Matrix For a Positive Lifestyle:
“Have good friends.
Don’t isolate yourself.
Sustain a lifelong companionship with a spouse or partner.
Engage socially in worthwhile projects.
Be close with people who have a good lifestyle – habits are contagious.
Follow a purpose in life.
Leave time for play and relaxation.
Keep up satisfying sexual activity.
Address issues around anger.
Practice stress management.
Deal with the reactive mind’s harmful effects: When you have a negative reaction, stop, stand back, take a few deep breaths, and observe how you’re feeling.”

You don’t need money, just a little time to give mental support and be kind to all. Check on the elderly, bring their Newspaper to their door in bad weather, say hello to your neighbors when you see them, wish them happy holidays and birthdays etc. Call your parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles; talk to them to make sure they are not lonely, thank the soldiers when you see them for keeping us safe; thank priests, police officers, teachers, postal workers, newspaper persons, trash collectors for their services. Write notes to a lonely and unknown person and make his or her day. These acts of kindness have a trickle-down effect.
