21 Day Happiness Challenge

21 Day challenge - Day 14

“The true measure of an individual is how they treat a person who can do them absolutely no good.” ~Ann Landers

Happiness and altruism are intimately linked in a positive feedback loop – doing good is an essential ingredient to being happy, and happiness spurs kindness and generosity.

#ThoughtfulThursday Challenge: In the next 24 hours, give back to the greater good without any strings attached. Perhaps do something for someone and don’t tell anyone, or, at least for the day, try to let no one come to you without leaving happier. Tip: If you don’t think you have anything to give back, think again…the greatest gift you can give someone is your presence!

Little by little, a little becomes a lot. As Desmond Tutu puts it, “Do your little bit of good where you are, it is those little bits of good put all together that overwhelm the world.”
