Happiness is Making A Difference

A young boy was picking up starfish stranded on the shore and throwing them into the sea.

A man who was watching him asked him as to what he was doing.

To this, the boy answered, “I am helping these starfish get back to where they came from

But there were thousands of starfish on the shore” said the man. “Do you think you will ever make a difference?”

The boy smiled, threw another starfish into the sea and said “I made a difference to that one!”

The Happiest Minds team in India, UK & US came together to make a difference to many lives by participating in Daan Utsav – Joy of Giving 2015.

The NGO team was at Happiest Minds on 19th November for a time of interaction (www.bit.ly/HappiestMinds_JGW2015)

We are called to SERVE.

It is not just what we do that matters but the impetus behind our action that truly counts.

On Saturday, the PES Team came together to serve those unsung, unseen heroes and heroines who make our lives at Happiest Minds truly worthwhile – Our Support Team.

It’s a beautiful thing to practice kindness. It helps us deepen our understanding of who we are.

I learnt a few things that day.

  1. When we serve, we transform ourselves – we discover a radical shift from “me” to “we”. From ‘self-centeredness’ to ‘other-centeredness’ From ‘what’s in it for me’ to ‘how can I be of service?’
  2. When we serve, we express gratitude – first, by being grateful for what we have received and then by continuing to pay it forward with happiness.

Mahatma Gandhi says: “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”

My hope is that we will all go out and serve.

In a small way or a big way.

Let us use every experience to learn or affirm something.

It can change our world. For, when we serve, our cup fills and overflows.
