Yesterday I was a gathering and Robby quoted Chris Brady,
I immediately went inward and asked myself if I was happy for giving happy. Which is a true principle according to the scriptures “Thou shall love thy neighbour as thyself.” (KJV, Mark 12:31). So when we are to have joy, we are to share the joy with everyone.
Well, I came to the conclusion that I wasn’t happy enough by giving happy.
Today the plans changed. I am giving happy. Looking for opportunities to give happy. And you know what?
It feels great inside!
I am normally a pretty happy person (except on the days that I am not, which are very few and it is not even days, they are moments, there has been much effort put towards this…glad to be changing). Smiling is part what I do when I see someone, I serve when I see the need…you know…the good things are there. However, now I am looking for ways to make a difference in someone’s life. It might be opening the door at the store, helping someone with their groceries into the car, listening to someone who needs to talk….you name it…I am looking for ways to ‘give happy.’
“When was the last time you gave happy? How did it make you feel?”
