Today, I am going to Share…
Today, I would like to share with you something which is an integral part of me. A gesture which now comes naturally to me; Something that gives my soul ‘sukoon’ (read serenity) and that gesture is the eagerness to share a good thing with people it would be helpful. This “good thing” could be a beautiful learning, a good book, a peaceful song, a reasonable garments store, recommending a class/workshop/course, smiling at/helping a stranger, giving a phone call on special occasions to loved ones, etc.
We all are good at something or the other. We all are God’s special children. Aren’t we? In our lives, we have come across at least one situation which has given us this feeling that ‘YES, we have God’s hand on us.’ Not everyone who goes to sleep gets up alive in the morning. If we have been given this beautiful gift of living one more day, let us first be grateful and, secondly, share the wisdom we have with people who would benefit from it. With the onset of smartphones, things have become very accessible. You have several options as per your suitability. When you find anything worth sharing, just take a screenshot/copy a link and send across or message it on WhatsApp. One of the best options I find these days is to send a voice note. Due to this ongoing pandemic, as a mother, I have one after the other chores. So instead of typing, I find voice notes to be very handy. Thus, My dear friends, use these simple and straightforward tactics and make a teeny-weeny difference in others’ lives. Once you take a step, several modes of helping others will automatically come to you.
Well, I have been talking so far about sharing, but why do we need to share? What is sharing?
Sharing is GIVING. It is giving what you have. It could be as simple as offering a smile to a stranger/ known person. Smile is a lovely gesture that immediately connects two people. How? For that, we need to understand how our body works. Our body produces chemicals through different glands known as Hormones. Certain hormones are known to help promote positive feelings, happiness, and pleasure. These “happy hormones” are Dopamine, Serotonin, Oxytocin, and Endorphins. When we help others, our brain releases Dopamine, Serotonin, and Oxytocin. These hormones enhance our mood and counteract the effect of Cortisol (Stress Hormone). These three are referred to as the Happiness Trifecta. ‘Trifecta’ means triple. My dear friends, keep helping others in some way or the other and, in return, keep collecting the Happiness Trifecta.
Do you enjoy playing games like Mario, Subway Surfers, or Temple Run? I love the sound which comes when I jump on the coins. Pluck! Pluck! So can you visualize yourself like that kid who is jumping, helping others, and gathering the Happiness Trifecta? Wow! What a wonderful and beautiful journey life would be then.
We all have come into the world with a purpose, a purpose much higher than just taking care of family and children’s responsibilities. If one human has the potential to create a history in the world, we all have the same potential. So, let us extend our hands to the people around us, starting with small acts of kindness. We all have been bestowed with lots of blessings; it is time for us to do our part. So start now! Get going. Make a difference. Develop this habit. Make it a part of your DNA.
