An effort made for the happiness of others lifts us above ourselves.

May 10 th - make someone happy and you will be happy
The unselfish effort to bring cheer to others will be the beginning of a happier life for ourselves.
Being kind to others can actually make us genuinely happy in a number of different ways. There is a link between and kindness and well being throughout life. Spending money on others may be more powerful in increasing happiness than spending it on yourself.
Being kind is likely to make someone smile and if you see that smile for yourself, it might be catchy. Why not set off a chain of good feelings with a nice surprise for someone.
Doing a kind act to make someone who is sad feel better can also make us feel good because we are putting something right, which in turn improves our mood.
Kindness always comes back around. If you help someone, they will most like help you in the future. Being kind may boost your mood but it is also known the being in a good mood can make you more kind.
Encouragement and faithfulness demonstrate the value of a friend. Be a friend, it’s worth the effort.
