Inconvenience Yourself

Mortgage and Lending

So, we had MY WAY DAY. Now it's time for Inconvenience yourself day.

Celebrated on the 4th Wednesday of every February, this date is the complete opposite of My Way Day.

Today is all about finding things to do that are an inconvenience to you, but a help to someone else. So many times we all get wrapped up in our own daily life and what we need to get done and forget about helping others.

Funny how this comes right after the 100th Anniversary of the Scouts. A large part of their motto is to always help other people.

I think most of us help others, when we can. When it's convenient. So, for today (and hopefully on other days as well) help someone out. Go "out of your way" to make a difference for someone today. Maybe it's a relative. Go visit Grandma. Maybe it's to help someone carry packages at the store. Maybe something as simple as waiting a little longer to hold the door so someone can follow you in.

Whatever it is - Be inconvenienced today.

What a nice thought - going out of your way to help others.  My only objection is that it shouldn't be designated for one specific day.  It should be a part of our day every day.

We had our blue and gold dinner the other day and celebrated the 100 year anniversary of scouting and it is such a great anniversary and organization to be honoring in such a way.

I agree - it should be done every day.
