In the sharing of happiness life has meaning…

“The most worth-while thing is to try to put happiness into the lives of others.”

Robert Baden-Powell

Over the past few days, I have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support our family has received after Grayson’s passing. The calls, emails, and texts have been simply incredible.  

It has served as a powerful and poignant reminder of why we are here on this earth. The purpose for which we were created isn’t to gather more stuff or capture more things.  Life isn’t a giant monopoly game where the one with all money wins.  Instead, we should view our lives as a spring of water flowing to give sustenance and love to others.  Life is people and the relationships we build with those we come into contact with, whether for a moment or a lifetime. 

If we aren’t spending the best effort and energy we have, giving away happiness, and being a wellspring of joy for others, we waste the precious time we have been given and miss the point of our existence.

Find someone to reach out to today and share happiness and love. In the giving of this gift, two will benefit…  

Giving happiness…

When you go home at the end of the day what makes you sleep better; having helped someone else find happiness or focusing on the creation of your own happiness?

I for one have found that helping someone else is what creates the happiness reward for me. It is amazing how doing for others can have such incredible personal returns when you put serving at the top of your priority list.

Who did you help find happiness today?
