Sunshine Givers

Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others 
cannot keep it from themselves.
James M. Barrie

I love this quote.  Have you ever tried to help someone who was needing help? If you have, you know it doesn't matter if it was planned or spontaneous -- nor exactly what you did to help.  All that matters is that you were able to bring sunshine into the life of someone who needed it.  Can anyone walk away after helping another and not feel uplifted for doing so?

Helping others is rewarding and can also be an effective prescription for many things that ail you.  There is no better way to help put things into perspective. Helping others helps us realize that our problems aren't as big as they seem.   If you are spreading sunshine into the universe, you can't help but to receive sunshine from the universe in return.  

Thought of the Day:  Are you a "sunshine giver" or are you needing more "sunshine?"  The best way to receive sunshine is to give some.  By giving to others and spreading cheer, we can't help but to be receiving sunshine in the process.  What will you do today to spread some cheer?

Have a wonderful day!
