The only payment we should ever expect is gratitude. And that should come from our own heart. Great reminder. Thanks!
Yeah, well… when a business asks for your time as a volunteer and they don’t show appreciation… Oh I don’t know what I’m trying to say. But sometimes it is just nice to be appreciated and it doesn’t make the “why” you are doing what you’re doing any different but it just makes it nice. And it brings the volunteers back the next time.

I agree with this quote, but in a world of entitled morons who couldn’t be grateful if their life depended on it, I must admit that lately I have had my doubts, because it’s not about business. It’s about acknowledgment of another’s help–another’s help that makes one more comfortable or eases a transition to a better state of being, whatever that state may be. Sometimes people are so blinded by what they want that they forget the many souls who participated in their elevated positions.
They go through life with a tough shit attitude regarding their misuse of generosity, and that’s just plain stupid. It’s always better to be grateful, I think.
Another quote comes to mind:
“What separates privilege from entitlement is gratitude.” -Brene Brown
Beautifully put! And a great quote to follow. 👏
So true! It’s nice to do kind things for others and not expect anything in return.
This is the second time this week that I’ve seen this quote, so I think it’s a good sign. Thanks for the reminder to make my intentions a little less selfish and a lot more about helping other people 🙂
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with conducting business as long as both parties are in agreement.
But kindness is another thing entirely.
