This is one of the most powerful quotes that I have ever seen. The truth of this quote really speaks volumes.
Performing acts of kindness
Doing something for others
When you make the decision to reach out and be kind to those who could never possibly repay you, you experience the absolute true beauty of giving, and what it can bring. Doing something kind for another person can change their day, or in some cases, their life.
When you do something kind for someone, you could be making more of an impact than you realize. You could be doing something for someone who, unbeknownst to you, had been having a terrible day up until that point, or had been feeling really down about life as of late. And due to your act of kindness, you suddenly give them hope without even realizing it.
That is the beauty of it. You can literally change the way a person looks at the world.
Yes, receiving can be wonderful. We are not selfish when we enjoy receiving. But absolutely nothing compares to the joy of giving. It is the most rewarding feeling in the world.
Ironically, by giving, you are receiving. You just do not realize it yet...
What sort of feeling do you get when you give?
