Enjoying your life does not always mean doing what you are fond of doing; in fact when you really do something different that’s what makes you feel the happiest in life. But doing something different does not mean, doing something that is harmful to you or someone else.
These days, many find life boring and indulge in visiting pubs and malls, smoking and drinking, mall-hopping, seeing movies and other meaningless activities, which are not worth it, for they don’t bring any meaning and real value to life.
Instead, when you bring a smile on someone’s face with what you do selflessly, you really feel a lot of joy and happiness comes automatically.
You can help the poor – give clothes to someone who doesn’t have any, help someone to cross the road even if it is not the route you are taking, or you are getting late to go for an important work of yours, take care of a person’s health condition, feed a homeless person with your own hands, give some love and affection and make them feel that they are loved too.
If you are an animal lover, then you can take care of an animal on the streets, or volunteer at dog shelters.
You can pick up the garbage that is on the street and throw it in a bin, without thinking “why should I pick it up, I didn’t throw it there” because with that small deed you are making a really big change around you by keeping your environment clean. You can plant saplings around your neighbourhood and take care of them till they grow into trees. If you are not able to this by yourself, you can enroll into a nature-loving group and participate in their greening drives.
Never give up on the good decisions you have made, even when people around you may not come to you and say that you are really doing a great job. People do observe a lot when you do something useful. The best way to work is not to expect anything from anybody but just keep on doing it, for, the best reward is personal satisfaction. We are enjoying the fruits of hard work of many before us, and it is time to pay it forward with small good deeds, if possible without letting anyone know about them.
We should learn to find happiness within us by making others happy, and thus make each minute of our life truly enjoyable.
