Giving                                                                                                                                     Hey everybody! I wanted to let you all know what I have been up to today. Today I am doing little random acts of kindness....and honesty I am really excited about it. This morning before I made my way into work I decided to go by my favorite drive-thru and order my usual a big sweet tea with lemon and a sausage biscuit....however I thought to myself why not pay for the person's breakfast behind me as well....give them a little encouragement for the day! So I  did....boy o' boy would I have loved to seen the look on that persons face when they started to hand the cashier their money only to hear the words "It's free today!" I mean really how awesome would that be? Then I got to work and decided to keep the mojo going  so what did I do.... I called in an order of flowers to be delivered to my mom at work with a note attached that read "Hope you have a great day...I love you! get  flowers for no reason!!! Then before I knew it, it was time for lunch and while I was out I picked up a whole box of cupcakes for my co-workers. Who doesn't love cupcakes!!! I just wanted them to know that I appreciate them! I also decided to take a trip to a local gas station here in town,(a place where you have to pay the paying at the pump) I told the cashier that the next person who came in needing $10.00 in gas to go ahead and fill it up it was already paid for.

The best thing about today was that every time I gave....I felt like I was the one receiving!

Helping others is not only good for them and a good thing to do, it also makes us happier and healthier too. Giving also connects us to others, creating stronger communities and helping to build a happier society for everyone. And it's not all about money - we can also give our time, ideas and energy. So if you want to feel good, do good! 

Scientific studies show that helping others boosts happiness. [1] It increases life satisfaction, provides a sense of meaning, increases feelings of competence, improves our mood and reduced stress. It can help to take our minds off our own troubles too. [2]
