“There is nothing more beautiful than someone who goes out of their way to make life beautiful for others” ~ Mandy Hale.
You will agree with me that there are some persons in your life that you will ever remain grateful to and if my guess is anywhere close to correct, they are the persons who had given you at least one thing or other – opportunities, gifts, time, priviledges, resources, a shoulder to cry on, ideas and guidance. And many a time, these come free. The big question is: Is there someone somewhere who will ever be grateful to you for what you have given them?
One of the best ways to be truly happy with yourself is to give something genuinely from your heart to someone who you know cannot repay you. It is such a good feeling.
Steve Maraboli once said “A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal”.
Everyone of us need the support of others at certain points down the line, do not be the type that always sits on the receiving side, if you can’t give money, you can give time, if you can’t give opportunities or priviledges, you can give ideas, if you can’t give the solution, you can at least point them in the right direction, but always give something. Give without the expectation of getting something in return.
Giving creates a feeling of happiness, doing good for someone and seeing them happy will always make you feel good. Give to others by being kind, saying nice things, giving gifts, or even a smile. Don’t worry about what other people do for you because this creates lack. Give freely and know you will always get back in abundance what you give to others.
Finally let me leave you with the question of Martin Luther King Jr.
“What are you doing for others?”
Have a wonderful Wednesday.
I honour you.
