The New Ashley

Be unselfish. That is the first and final commandment for those who would be useful and happy in their usefulness. If you think of yourself only, you cannot develop because you are choking the source of development, which is spiritual expansion through thought for others.
- Charles W. Eliot

My New Testament professor challenged us last week to make our best efforts to be a Good Samaritan.
While I'm struggling to be any kind of Samaritan, I have noticed that I am totally surrounded by angels. I am the recipient of a lot of Good Samaritaning. I have the kindest roommates and I'm so grateful for their friendship.
I figured that I would make this quote my motto so that I can give more, since I'm always getting so much love.
Also, as a sidenote, I got into the Advertising Program. I'm pretty stoked.
