Life is all about you. I know you heard that phrase many times, and maybe some of us believe in it. They work for themselves, put themselves first, hold things they don’t need to, and they think they’d be happy with it. But, sometimes I saw them aren’t happy. The reality is they often feel empty. Searching for happiness, and never satisfied with their lives.
The more you give, the more you get.
When you start living generously, it feels so hard. It’s uncomfortable. It’s stretching your heart and mind. My mom always told me to have a big heart, and slowly I realize the meaning by living generously. You begin to realize there’s more to life than money you have or career you get.
I started with the small things. I bought my cousins presents on their birthdays or Christmas and it felt so so so good. Saw them excited with the presents just made me so happy. There is something satisfying in witnessing people unwrap the gift and seeing their smile. It’s not about physical or wealth benefit but it gave you something more. It gives your life meaning.
I dream to be ‘santa’ for people. I want to pay someone’s bills, buying many kids toys, or just simply volunteering for non-profit organization. I do believe giving will give you joy, fulfillment and satisfaction.
Money can’t buy happiness, unless you spend it on others.
There are so many things you get, and it’s time for us to get back. Remember, one small act of kindness can change someone's life.
