Giving Tokens of Love

Every week, I like to think of small ways that can help us boost our energy levels, without having to break the bank. I know it must be difficult to keep your spirits up. But I like to think that things can only go up from here. I was first inspired when I was talking to my cousin, and I was giving her suggestions to help her feel more happier, without having to put forth so much effort. I call it Feel Good Fridays.

This week my suggestion to help you feel better, is by making something for someone else. It can be anything from a simple drawing, or a poem, or just by writing, or expressing your love for them. This is part of my Happiness Project resolutions for February which was to give tokens of my love to others. I feel like I could have given more tokens of love away this month.

But being able to give your love away to others, is such an amazing feeling. I helped my niece make a little craft for Valentine’s Day so she could give to her parents. I adore seeing people happy when they are given gifts of love.

This is from Saturday.

If you can do this, I know that some might not be able to do this one, but for those that can, donate blood. Especially during this time, because where I live is it’s winter, which brings in dangerous driving conditions and causes car accidents.

I know that there are some requirements that need to be met in order to donate blood, but if you do qualify, please consider it. You just never know who you may help. Of course, I am not forcing anyone to do this, but I am just making everyone aware that they have the power to help others.

This project is to help others spread joy and kindness, instead of having to spend so much money on others. Mind you it is nice to get presents, but sometimes people often feel the need that they have to go hundreds of dollars in debt just to show someone you love them.

If you read this really cool book, and you want others to read it, leave it behind at a cafe, or on a bus. Leave a note explaining that you are leaving this book for someone else. This also works for self help books.

Day 155 of 192

Hey everyone! I hope everyone is having a wonderful day.

Over the years I have had a large collection of sweaters. Like an obsessive amount of sweaters, courtesy of my Grandma for always giving me more sweaters. It feels really good to help others by giving away a lot of these sweaters that no longer fit me, since I have grown. It’s better to donate items instead of tucking them away in a container.

It feels really good to let go, and finally have a reasonable amount of sweaters.

I have learned to let go of things. It is liberating to know that thing aren’t going to weigh me down. There are several studies that show a correlation with being stressed and depressed from owning too many things.

In the season of giving, how about we rename it the Season of Giving Back? We should learn ways we can help others. Big or small gestures really go a long way to brighten someone’s day.
