True happiness is giving it away

I really like the sentiment that true happiness is giving someone else happiness. At least that is the way I see this quote. But remember those times during the day when you have put a smile on someone’s face, whether it was a major act of kindness or something more modest the feeling you get is so much more gratifying than when someone does something for you. For me there is no better feeling in the world than seeing another persons face genuinely light up with happiness.

The glow that comes from deep within is a true moment that no camera can capture and no words can truly describe. Because it is not something visual, it is a feeling that is deep within your soul, a connection beyond our understanding that you ‘feel’ that happiness radiated throughout another soul. Try it today and see for yourself. Have a creative day.

  1. I love that statement and it is so true. I find it very difficult to accept something but I LOVE to give to others. They say you have to accept as well as give to complete the circle but after all these years I still find it hard. 🙂 Yeah, my computers doing good today…my favs are the 3rd one in the 1st and 3rd rows; the middle one in the 5th row (how cute) and the 1st one in the last row!


    1. I think it is important to receive so that others can feel that great feeing as well, but I understand what you mean! Glad your computer is doing better! Take care Alan


  2. Yup i love seeing faces that light up more especially if I am the turn ON switch! It made me think that sometimes it just take little to make someone happy and why oh why do we not do it instead of waiting for someone to make us happy first.

    On the global warming picture, the 1st thought that comes to mind is emission of good thoughts instead of air pollution — that would make the universe smile!

    I love that zebra tree! Makes me think that you can be anything you want to be. Zebra to tress; trees to zebra. There are restrictions but still creativity will take you as far as you can. yay!


    1. It is a great feeling to see that light go on!

      The only restriction to creativity is the limit we put on ourselves! Have a great day. Take care Alan.


  3. It’s amazing how one word from a person can turn your whole day around and make you feel better in a second! Our days are much happier when we show people kindness by giving them a simple gesture such as a smile… rather than a piece of our mind.


    1. I don’t know where you grab your illustrations from or if you make them, but they are absolutely brilliant. I really like them. No words needed.


      1. Thanks Seth. On occasion I throw in some of my sketches, pictures and creative things but I will not this day. I really just like to look around online and see what other creatives are doing. What I feel inspires me I just like to put here and celebrate the creative people I admire. Thanks for your comment but the applause should really go to all the great inspirational artists I have come across in my line of work. Take care Alan.
