"There is tremendous happiness in making others happy, despite our own situations."
"Shared grief is half the sorrow, but happiness when shared, is doubled."
I don't know who the author to the above quotes are but I find them very true. Sometimes, when we are sad, we are so drowned by our own sorrows. We get depressed, we can't think about anything else. Least of all, trying to make others happy.
However, there is a joy in making people happy. We should try to practise it. We should continue to try to make others happy despite our own situations. And hopefully, in time, our own troubles will cease.

"We will not be remembered by our words, but by our kind deeds. Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath."

The quote in the picture is very true. "No, Act of Kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted."

Recently I was in my parked car, a man behind me was struggling to park his car behind mine. I moved my car a little to the front to give him more space. He waved back gratefully and relieved. It was a very small act of kindness but I could see that he was grateful.

In another incident, my husband and I let a young woman with only one item on the grocery line behind ours to purchase her item first because we had two packed trolleys of groceries. She thanked us again and again, smiled and went on her way.

I am often grateful and happy by random acts of kindness, especially if it comes my way totally unexpected, even if its just a very small thing.

I try to do random acts of kindness by replying to emails from strangers requesting my help or opinion for any topic that I had blogged about. I try to reply genuinely to their questions and try to help the best that I can. That is my way to do a random act of kindness as a blogger. It is not hard at all. I can even do it from the comfort of my own home and it feels good to help others.
