I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m not a good person.
The highlight of my month was buying a coffee for someone I see every day. I couldn’t even manage to help someone shovel a snowy driveway on two different occasions. On one of those snowy days, a neighbor helped my with my driveway…and I didn’t even think to go around and help the other neighbors.
Out of the 31 days of December, I can say I did a good deed on 20 of them. I scored a 65% in life. Not good.
Am I a jerk? No. Am I selfish? Maybe.
I had the opportunity to give blood one day. Did I hand my vein over? No. But I thought about giving blood and in my opinion, that made me feel good. Just the idea of having the chance to give blood made me warm inside. I even told my wife that I wanted to give blood on a certain day. I bragged about thinking about giving blood. Does that make me a mean person? It was just a little inconvenient for me to leave my warm house on that day.
I think for the coming months, I’m going to try and complete more selfish monthly activities. Perhaps a full month of being selfish is a good goal for me.
