There’s nothing better than giving someone a reason to smile. You know what’s so fantastic about it too? We don’t have to give up hardly anything to do so.
We get what we give in life and there are so many little things we can give freely that will bring joy to those around us. And to ourselves too!
Today, be a giver and make someone smile by …
Giving a compliment.
Giving a hug.
Giving someone a shout out for the amazing person they are and for all they do.
Giving up a grudge.
Giving someone the benefit of the doubt.
Giving something you never use to someone who will actually get use out of it.
Giving an extra “I love you” to your partner, kids, fur babies and friends who make your life the beautiful, though sometimes crazy, life it is.
Giving the planet some TLC by walking instead of driving, using even one less paper towel or picking up a piece of trash (that’s not yours!).
Giving a dollar — or what you can — to a charity or someone who needs it.
Giving a big “thank you” to someone who has helped you out, had your back and been a saving grace when you needed it.
Giving your time to help a friend or someone who could use a hand.
Giving yourself a hug, high-five and pat on the back for who you are and for all you do. You may not be perfect — and your days may not always go your way — but you’re trying your best and deserve to give yourself some love.
When you smile, the world smiles back!
Quote du jour
“Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more.” ― H. Jackson Brown Jr.
Giving thanks is like screaming to the universe, “Yes, give me more of what I want please!” Start your day on a high with an attitude of gratitude and write down five things you’re grateful for. If you’re tight on time think them over while brushing your teeth or say them out loud while making breakfast.
Like Oprah said, “Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”
