Thought For the Day #23

From the Colorado Dermatology Institute in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

During my daily reading I came across an interesting article which talked about how 50 people attended this seminar when suddenly the speaker stopped and decided to do a group activity.  The speaker started giving each attendee a balloon.  Each person was asked to write their name on it using a marker, and their balloon represented true happiness.  Then all the balloons were collected and put in another room which had thousands of balloons.

Then the attendees were let in the room and were asked to find their balloon which had their name written on it, and they have 5 minutes to find their balloon.  Within seconds everyone was frantically searching for their name, colliding into each other, pushing around others and there was utter chaos.

As you can imagine at the end of the 5 minutes, very few people could find their balloon.  Then each one was asking to randomly collect a balloon and give it to the person whose name was written on it.  Within minutes, everyone had their own balloon.  

The speaker told them this is exactly what happens in our lives.  Everyone is frantically looking for happiness all around, not knowing where it is, and that happiness lies in the happiness of others.  Give them their happiness and you will get your happiness.

I challenge everyone to give to someone else with a random act of kindness to help this world be a better place, and by giving to others you will also be giving to yourself.
