Will You Share A Little Happiness With Others?

Will You Share A Little Happiness With Others?

By in Inspiration | 14 comments

In my last post, I wrote that happiness is a state of mind. But happy moments are found in the simplest of things.

It could be just little things that a child may say, a random act of kindness or even the smell of perfume or aftershave that reminds you of a loved one.

Sometimes I find happiness in gestures of kindness. It could be me being kind to someone else, instead of them being kind to me.

My daughter and I went shopping late one evening.On the way out of the supermarket, we noticed a frail old lady sitting by the door. I had never seen her before but she thought she knew me. We had a quick chat and left her at the supermarket.

As we walked down the road I felt guilty about leaving her sitting there. She looked very fragile and lonely. We decided to go back. I asked her if she was ok to get home. She told us that she had sat there for two hours. She didn’t have enough money to pay for a cab to take her home.  She hadn’t eaten all afternoon and felt tired. It was too far for her to walk home, so she sat there hoping that someone would help her.

I told her that I would get my car and give her a lift home. Her face lit up at my kind gesture. So we went to get my car.

In my car on the way to her house, she told us that she was 92 years old. She had been out window shopping all afternoon. She didn’t like being indoors on her own and usually go to the town centre to look around. That evening, however, she was unusually tired and had no money to buy something to eat. Therefore she didn’t have the energy to walk home, as she would usually do.

We drove her home and although she didn’t have any money, she asked me how much she owed me! It wasn’t my intention to take any money from her. Our act of kindness had overwhelmed her and she couldn’t thank us enough.

The gratitude on her face was enough to melt my heart and made me happy. It felt good that I was able to give her a lift home. If I had left her there, I dread to think what could have happened to her. She had sat in that supermarket for two hours and nobody else had spoken to her. So for me, happiness that evening was sharing kindness with a stranger who needed help.

I have written this as an open post for you to share some happiness with other readers……..

  3. The happiness debate is an interesting one.Lately I’ve been thinking about the difference between “happiness” and joy. I think it’s an issue of dimensions. Happiness is momentary, but joy is longer lasting.

    I think the biggest difference is that joy
    emanates from within and happiness is caused by external circumstances like a new car. You can be joyful without being happy, but you cannot be happy without joy.

    Joy is the superior state of being. Strength for living emanates from joy.

    In closing it’s worth remembering that proportionally speaking the rich tend to be lesshappy than their less “fortunate” counterparts. Mmm

    • Thanks for this John. I guess you’re right because happy feelings can be fleeting. Joy stems from a deeper place within. Even so, the two comes under the same umbrella! Yes, money doesn’t equal happiness.
