Chapter 12, Page 2, Book 20

We rise by lifting others. 

Robert Ingersoll

December 2nd - lift others up

Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others , you should but a good deal of thought into the happiness that you are able to give.

Eleanor Roosevelt

Kindness is caring for others, even when they can not care for you.  If you want to be happy, simply make others happy.  There is no better way to feel good about yourself than to lend a hand to someone else. 

A compliment and a little encouragement can go along way to making someone’s day.  A little kindness can go a long way. It  can brighten your whole world too.  So give someone a sincere compliment today. It can mean so much for it’s close to the other persons heart.  

We may sometimes take for granted what others do, like the food they cook or how they keep doing their job consistently each and every day or how they are there to listen when we need it.

The world can be a tough and discouraging place so it’s good to encourage someone who is in a negative situation at the moment.  

Making others happy makes life sweet and fun.  

In the long run we tend to be treated by others as we treat them.  Plus the way we treat and think about others tends to be the way we treat and think about ourselves.

What ever you decide to do, make sure it makes you happy

Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.

Recently, a total stranger gave me a compliment out of left field -- and it made my whole day. In fact, I'm still smiling inside.
I think this year, more than any other in memory, it's critical to encourage one another. Each in our way, we're all stumbling along the path together.

I totally agree! :)

This year and especially since this COVIC thing, we try to compliment the clerks and helpers at the stores we must visit.
Yes, it does bring a smile to hectic days for them.
