This week's focus is:  Compassion

Compassion is understanding and caring when someone is hurt or troubled, even if you don't know them.  It is wanting to help, even if all you can do is listen and say kind words.  You forgive mistakes.  You are a friend when someone needs a friend.

Week 5 - everyone is feeling the weight of uncertainty.  This is a time to practise Compassion - 

Tuesday's FUN FACT re: Compassion:

1. Helping others can bring us pleasure.
A study was done at Emory University that entailed participants helping someone else while their brain activity was recorded.  It turned out that helping other people triggered the brain activity associated with pleasure and reward.  They were able to determine that indeed, helping others DOES bring us the same pleasure we get from gratification of personal desire.
