Don’t ever underestimate the impact you may have on someone else’s life.
Do you matter?
Of course you do!
Do you feel like you matter?
That can depend on the day.
Just ask George Bailey (from the ‘ole favorite, It’s a Wonderful Life).
We humans all need to matter.
In fact, feeling of value and feeling that our existence matters to someone is fundamentally core to our happiness.
So on those days that you could use a little happiness boost shift your perspective from “me” to “we”.
How can I help?
What can I do to add value?
Is there someone whose day I can brighten?
And do it.
You will not only delight in feeling that you matter, you will be happier because you did.
WRITING & REFLECTION:
What can you do to help someone today?
Who’s day can you brighten today?
Do it, and reflect on your experience.
