This week’s photo challenge from The Daily Post is Happy. And here’s my interpretation. Enjoy!
A few days earlier, I realised that I was being too self-centred. I mainly thought of only myself, buying stuff for myself, taking care of myself… All right, I know it’s good. It’s recommended, as at least we know that we are not depressed and want to end our lives, but then, it has a purpose. Yes, being self-centred for a while actually helps us to realise one main thing:
The value of generosity. The act of sharing. The art of giving.
When I’ve fully taken care of myself, spared some private time for myself, I realise in the end that I do this so that I can start giving to others, to pay attention to the ones around me. If I take care of myself, I feel good and the vibrant energy I feel can thus spread around me into the environment.
I don’t know if I’m expressing myself clearly, but in all, it’s like we are a vase which is being filled with water. As we keep on filling ourselves, at a certain point the water will overflow, and therefore will share this water which was mine first to the rest of the world.
And that’s the art of giving, in my opinion.
Giving, without waiting anything in return, because in fact we do not lack. We have to see that we have enough, be satisfied with what we have, to appreciate the sharing process. Then, giving simply becomes fun.
And it just makes you so happy.
Here’s a great video on ‘The Art Of Giving’, which was in fact it’s former title:
