7 ways to Give ~ Secret to living is Giving!

contribution-volunteer Looking for a guaranteed road to happiness? It’s really quite simple…give to others. Make a difference in the lives of others and your own heart will be touched in return. The biggest gift after love a human being can give to others is their time. Why not to give them both?

There are so many unhappy, unfulfilled, depressed, lost souls on a planet Earth. It really breaks my heart to witness emotional struggles people go through. And most of their struggles are due to lack of purpose in life. Take a minute right now and answer this question: “What am I here to give?”  Get outside of yourself and your own problems. The moment we get outside of ourselves, the moment we decide no more, we tap into capacity that is greater than ourselves. This is unique, extraordinary human capacity, and it is available to each and every one of us right now.

You might say, “It sounds great, but I do not have the money or I do not have time.” My friend, you do not have to have extra finances to make a difference.

1. A kind word, a smile, an extra hug can make someone’s day.

2. Show someone you care, be extra kind, make that phone call that you put aside for so long and say I love you.

3. You can give a prayer, give your time and attention.

4. You can share your knowledge and wisdom with those that need your guidance.

Trust me, there are always millions of people that have greater problems and struggles than you do, and some of those people are more fulfilled in their lives just because they do not focus on their own problems. 75% of the planet lives on $2 dollars a day. What you think is a financial problem is a blessing for someone else. An Indian proverb says, “Good people, like clouds, receive only to give away.” Whatever good happens in your life is not so you can keep it all to yourself. Part of it is intended to be given to others.

Feeling stressed, depressed, and hopeless? We all have our moments, sister, but it is time to reroute that energy and create something bigger, something outside of ourselves.

5. Love kids? Make a visit to a children’s’ hospital!

6. Love animals? Volunteer at local shelter or even better become a foster mom for furry kids. You will be soaked with so much unconditional love and appreciation as never before.

7. Help your senior neighbor to get groceries or simply drop a post card for holidays.

There are tons of ways to get involved. You see, to feel depressed and hopeless is to focus on what you are missing. To feel fulfilled is to help/serve others. Choice is yours, my friend!
