Festivity is once again in the air people are gearing up to usher the new year. It is also the time when we exchange gifts, it brings happiness as these gifts convey the love and care of the giver. It is a strange emotion, where the person who makes the other happy becomes even happier, as is said you heal faster emotionally when you help someone. The joy of giving is in doing for others, it can be a gift we buy or it may be a gift of time or volunteering to help others. In plain and simple words just spread happiness with your small gestures. We don’t need to get wrapped up in impressing people, we need to only convey the message of care and kindness that was intended. Sometimes, the smallest gestures of kindness goes a long way. By doing this we touch many lives and create honest relationships. The selfish element here is, that those whom we care for will surely stand by our side when needed.
Since the entire surrounding contributes to our well being, it is essential that we remember that we have to give back. It is a very fulfilling and an unparalleled feeling of giving back and contributing to society. The ones who are happiest are not who always get more but those who are able to give and share more. Sharing liberates our soul and since our joy multiplies by giving to others we should put a good deal of thought into the happiness that you are able to give!
