Have you ever thought of doing something extraordinary for a friend, family member or even for a stranger? “A smile is the light in your window that tells others that there is a caring, sharing person inside” – Denis Waitley. What do you count as being caring?
Sharing does not necessarily mean you have to always give out your money, clothes, food or what have you. Sharing could start by you smiling to a stranger. Everyone needs love, care and affection. A smile is a very powerful tool, use it!
“Let my soul smile through my heart and my heart smile through my eyes, that I may scatter rich smiles in sad hearts” – Paramahansa Yogananda (Brainy quotes). By smiling to a total stranger, friend or family member who has had a tough day – can change a lot of things, it can even save a life.
“The real man smiles in trouble, gathers strength from distress, and grows brave by reflection” – Thomas Paine (Brainy quotes). The more we smile the better we feel. We get positive energy from smiling and being optimistic even though everything does not work out they way we want it to. Having a positive aura around you, attracts people to you, because everyone would like to be just as positive minded as you.
Sharing really is caring. If you want to be a more caring person, then you should also be willing to share your things, even knowledge. Be on the lookout for opportunities to share things, whether it’s a material object or a piece of advice or knowledge. Sharing doesn’t only mean material goods. You can also share knowledge. Take the time to talk to a high school student about the college admissions process if you’re in college. Talk to someone starting out in your career field about your experiences. Help a younger person on your tennis team master her forehand. Look for opportunities to improve a person’s life by sharing what you know. Sharing has a meditative value.
Start today by sharing at least a smile with someone, sharing is caring and caring is paving a way to making yourself a better person!
