Make Someone Happy

“Make someone happy; Make just one someone happy; And you will be happy too.” –Jimmy Durante

Friendliness is something so easy to do, yet how often do we go out of our way to be friendly?  Giving someone a compliment, being polite, holding a door open. These are all acts of kindness that make a huge difference in the lives of the people your being friendly to.

About 2 months ago, I went out of my way to invite a girl from yoga class to coffee.  With each of our schedules, it took us until today to take each other up on the offer.  We did a body pump class (not easy!) at 24hour Fitness and got lunch. It was a lot of fun.  And you know what she told me?  She told me how nice it was that I went out of my way to become friends with her; it really made her day.

By making someone happy, I made a new friend, gym buddy and boogie board companion.  By making someone happy, I made myself happy too.

What can you do to make someone happy today?
