Know your gifts and share them.
Life is a precious commodity that we need to handle with the utmost of care; a prized possession far too valuable to ever take lightly or for granted. Each and every day should be viewed for what it truly is a special once in a lifetime gift from God. Each dawning day presents us with countless opportunities to share extraordinary times with those all around us; a chance to really show others how much we care by our willingness to share the best life has to offer.
Rather than trying to keep everything to yourself, you can actually enjoy life much more fully by giving your best to others every day of your life. Thats right; your life will take on more meaning when you start GIVING YOURSELF AWAY!
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
By sharing a smile with someone who could desperately use a little sunshine in his or her life, you can leave behind an indelible impression that lasts a lifetime. By taking a moment to touch the heart of a downhearted soul, you show that you care. Better yet, you might even provide the spark that turns that persons day or maybe even his or her own life completely around.
Youll discover that lighting another persons day not only makes that other human being feel better, it makes you feel better as well. In fact, youll start feeling a whole lot better. By helping someone who could really use a helping hand, you can provide that individual a much needed hand up instead of an impersonal hand out.
Hey, wouldnt you absolutely love for someone to pick you up when youre feeling lower than low? Then why not share that super sensational feeling by looking for ways to lighten the load of everyone you are privileged to touch daily?
A smile is the light in your window that tells others that there is a caring, sharing person inside.
There is no shortage of opportunities to share your wealth each and every day. Everywhere you look and everyplace you turn, there are dozens upon dozens of people who could use a friendly picker upper. You will find that a little caring here and a little sharing there can really go a long ways.
A heartfelt pat on the back when hope is in short supply may be just what the doctor ordered. A reassuring word of encouragement when the going gets tougher than tough may help someone pull through their darkest hours. And just being there whenever or wherever someone needs a person to talk to or a shoulder to cry on can literally make someone elses day. Helping another person when they need it the most is what caring and sharing yourself with others is all about.
The greatest good you can do for another is not just to share your riches, but to reveal to him his own.
When the toils and troubles of day to day take their toll, its good to know that even these most difficult of days can be overcome with a little help from our friends. Thats why it is so critically important for us to bring out the best in others by helping them see the best in themselves.
Like it or not, getting knocked down is an inevitable part of growing into the person youre destined to become. Getting knocked down is OK as long as you keep getting up and getting better. We all get knocked down on occasion, but sometimes the getting up part of the deal is too much for some of us to handle alone. Thats where you and I come in.
"There is no joy in possession without sharing."
Erasmo da Rotterdam
We need to make absolutely certain that were there when people need us and that were ready, willing and able to give of ourselves whenever and wherever it is required. Can there be any greater gift that we can give to someone else than to help them in their time of need?
And heres the best part, giving of yourself doesnt cost you a dime. As a matter of fact, the more you give the more that comes back to you over and over again. Without a doubt, sharing and caring are gifts that truly keep on giving. Heres wishing you and your loved ones many happy returns.
Instead of allowing one irreplaceable day after another to slip right through your fingertips, never taking the time to share life with those around you, why not show others just how much you care by giving them the best you have to offer? And then giving a little more?
The Bottom Line: When you handle other people with care day in and day out, your life will soon be filled with more love, happiness and contentment than youve ever known.
