Make Someone's Day


I always have this dream. A dream that the world would be a beautiful place, where everyone would be happy and in love. Where there are smiles and celebration and peace in peoples hearts. Where hands strecth out to help and fold up in gratitude. Where eye's lift up in hope and sparkle in achievement. Where when people talk, flowers bloom. What a wonderful world that would be !
And when I wake up, I ask myself, how can I contribute today. I have found great sense of achievement and joy in "Making Someone's Day ! Everyday !" Its so simple to do it. A smile, a compliment, an unexpected gift, a hand written letter, a wink, a pat on the back, a word of encouragement, a hug, a helping hand, a kiss, anything that is backed by the intention of love and gratitude, qualifies. No act of kindness or encouragement is too small, infact it goes a long.
I will never forget the comment my fifth grade teacher wrote on my report card, "Very Bright Child". I remember it 22 years later too. I remember losing a race and my mother gave me a hug and said, "You looked so pretty when you were running, your hair bounced like a doll". Losing the race suddenly didnt matter, my mothers words lifted my spirit.
I encourage you today to make some ones day. It costs nothing.
If you have a vision of a better world : Here is your chance to contribute. Love to you,
Priya

How often has a smiling cabdriver made your morning?? A small word, a small kind deed, all go a long way in creating an impact on our attitude..Its true, kindness becomes contagious!!

It is always said by you - "What you give always comes back to you", and this statement applies to everything. When i make others happy and be a feel good factor for them i am actually the first one to get happy.
It is a vicious circle, I will make sure that i make others feel good about their presence!!
Thank You again for the excellent blog

Like raindrops feel on the skin
Words of kindness feel in the heart
A smile can brighten faces
And so many fears a hug embraces

Hi Priya, this is such a cool piece of advice.
What you said is sooo true, and like you say the world is round, what you give is what you get. There have been times when just a smile had cheered me up. I shall make someones day every single day, by such little acts.
