Let’s Make Each Other Happy

I like to make others happy, one small gesture at a time.

My daily life is very busy, but I still make time for small gestures that help others. I like to show my appreciation and make them happy. Being kind in this way also gives me a great feeling and encourages me to be the best person that I can.

One of the main things I do daily to show kindness is to be patient with others. Many people in this world are always rushing and often don’t have time for anyone else. I try to be understanding and take things at a slower pace, even if it means that I have to wait a little bit longer. This often makes a big difference to the other person, who is usually very grateful.

My friends, family, and even strangers love it when I do something nice for them. They don’t expect it, so it is a pleasant surprise. I always make sure to do at least one kind thing for someone every day, no matter how big or small.

It really doesn’t take much effort to be kind. Even the simplest things can make a big difference in someone’s life. Just a smile or a few kind words can brighten up someone’s day. So don’t hesitate to be kind – it will make you feel good too! 🙂

Sometimes, I make a special dish or buy a small gift for someone. I might do a favor to help ease their load. These good deeds may be small, but they always make them smile.

I gladly give up a few minutes of my time to brighten someone else’s day.

In my daily routines, I pause long enough to give someone a smile or ask them about their day. I listen to what they have to say and give encouragement that uplifts or inspires them.

I also take time to perform random acts of kindness. For example, I’ll pay for the coffee of the person in line behind me or leave a large tip for great service. Once, I even helped a stranger carry their groceries to their car.

These small things not only make others happy, but they also bring joy to me. I know that I am making a difference in the world, one small act at a time.

Every day, I look for opportunities to bring happiness to others with small gestures. To me, they are only small actions, but they make a big difference in the lives of others and add to my own happiness as well.

So what can you do? Here are a few questions you can ask yourself throughout the day:

1.  How can I take a few minutes each day to help others?

2.  What types of things can I do to brighten someone else’s life?

3.  How can I ensure that others feel uplifted in my presence?

Before you know it, it will be a habit and you will be

    Thank you for sharing. These little things that you do for people are appreciated more than you know. That genuine smile and “how are you” and especially taking the time to really listen to people are things we all should remember to do everyday.

    • Paul on August 1, 2022 at 2:30 am

      Yes! That is so true, Cheryl. It is nice to be also one of the reasons why other people would have a good day.

    Thanks for sharing Paul. Those “small” things can be HUGE to someone else. A smile may mean to world to someone when they are not feeling loved, or picking up an item off the ground for a mom who is struggling with 3 kids appreciates it so much. Both are huge to the other person even though it doesn’t seem like much to the other person. Thank you again for sharing. I appreciate you and all you do (does that count for me today, lol j/k).

      Definitely right, Samantha! A single can smile can mean a lot. Let us make each other happy. Be a reason for someone’s good day.

    Paul, I am grateful for your putting forth gratitude as a value and practice. Also niceness. Want to see a niceness lab? Go to the bottled water area of Costco, and watch how people rush to help lift those cases of water for complete strangers. Amen!

    • Paul on August 1, 2022 at 2:33 am

      Aww, thank you so much, Kebba! Continue to be awesome. Be well.

    You’re so right, it doesn’t take much.
    Sometimes just “acknowledging” a person can make a difference. I make it a point to greet cleaning ladies at the mall or the airport and wish them a nice day. Usually they’re all like “who – me?”

    • Paul on August 1, 2022 at 2:34 am

      Yes, sometimes they get surprised because they don’t usually get appreciation. That would be such a great practice to treat them nicely. Thank you for your comment, Tamara!
