Yesterday I started a new series of posts on creating happiness. If you didn’t get a chance to read it you can find it here. Anyway, happiness equals 10% your circumstances, 10-15% your personality (some people are just “Happy People”), and finally 75% what you do to create your happiness. Today, let’s look at the second element for Finding Happiness:
Element 2: Giving
You have heard the old proverb; “it’s more blessed to give than to receive.”
There is a lot of truth to that statement. Today’s chore, find someone and bless them without them knowing it. I have made this a habit of my life and I love bringing joy to others in a moment of need. What’s more, most times I don’t tell them who did it. I have been on the receiving end of a gift many times and I praise God for providing for my every need through people who have blessed me (and my family).
So who will you bless today? It could be a gift card or a meal; free childcare for date night or any number of things. But try to find a real need in someone’s life and give to that. You’ll be happy you did.
