“Effective amends are as selfless and sincere as we can make them, with no hidden agendas.”

Sex Addicts Anonymous, page 49

Service work and acts of love are living amends that are also incredible validations to my spirit. I can bring joy and love into the lives of others as an amends to my past where my fear-filled actions brought suffering and pain.

When I have done a thorough housecleaning and know in my heart that my actions are grounded in love, I can freely give my time as a means of assisting someone along the path of their life journey. The added benefit for me is a boost in my spirit, an increased degree of self esteem, a stronger connection to my fellow human beings, and ultimately a stronger connection to my God.

Today I will commit to at least one anonymous act of kindness for the sake of love.
