On a daily basis, we all do many things to contribute to others. Maybe pick something up for a stranger. Or smile at a pedestrian. Or give advice to a friend. Or help a colleague at work.

I get reassured that I am indeed a good person which adds to my self confidence and self love. Getting present with who you are when no one is watching is a fabulous way to increase self worth.
