Another way to use this concept is to understand that everything you do for others, your home and family or friends, no matter how mundane it feels--like chopping veggies, again--or doing laundry, again--or driving someone somewhere, again--serves a high purpose. Remembering who you are, who you are serving, who is benefiting, can carry you through the times that don't feel so purposeful.
Because every moment counts. And you count in every moment.
So remember to take a moment for yourself, with a loving intention. Remember the power of a deep breath and an inner smile.
