Give Happy

If I choose to bless another person, I will always end up feeling more blessed.
-Marianne Williamson

I've always thought that giving "happies" is the best way to get "happies".

Give: a random phone call to a girlfriend you haven't spoke to in a while
Get: get caught up and feel more connected to her
Give: a smile
Get: a smile (usually hehe)
Give: LOVE
Give: your best
Get: your best
Give: a penny
Take: a penny
( lol)
Give: help when it's needed
Get: help when you need it
Give: the benefit of the doubt
Get: the benefit of optimism
Give: the truth
Get: self respect
Give: elbow grease
Get: rewarded

What can YOU give to get a happy?

Yeah, this is so true, Gina.
And I feel like the toughest things to give are the things you won't see the initial response or reward from.
Like, tidying up a house and then leaving.
Or something where you go into it knowing there will be a lot more given than received.
But isn't that the most rewarding? It's tough to do that, but how amazing!
