How’s this for a vague suggestion?! Do something useful?!
I offer it to help you consider the concept of usefulness. Here are some potential reflection questions:
- How do usefulness and kindness intersect?
- Is doing something useful always kind?
Consider when you’ve done something useful in the past:
- Why did you do it?
- Was it kind?
- If so, to whom (to what?)?
As you consider this theme, think broadly and give yourself permission to think outside of whatever box you may find yourself in.
For extra credit, spend some time studying the word “useful.” Do this as a meditative exercise that allows you to ponder what it means to be useful.
