Why do I feel empty inside? Why isn’t my work completely fulfilling? How can I become more content with my life? How can I be – and stay – happy? Some of us may have asked some of these questions in hopes for an answer. We might have felt frustrated with ourselves for these reasons, excruciatingly doubtful of our abilities, crushed by not being able to see the next step ahead or how to “fill the void.”
It is difficult to supply just one answer to any of these questions, as each person will seek to answer it differently in their own right. But I do think there are some universal principles at work in every person’s life that can answer some of these questions.
Throughout the next few weeks, I am going to post an overall compilation of thoughts, questions, exercises, and testimonies of people who have asked themselves the same questions – and have battled with becoming “whole people” themselves. Nuggets of wisdom from our fellow men and women!
First up is my friend Monteka D. who has something to say on becoming more happy.
Acts of kindness.
Don’t underestimate those small acts of kindness! Through those small and announced things, you make others happy – this in turn gives you joy in your heart. You can’t buy that with money! Contributing to someone else’s life really does fill an empty hole in your own life.
People tend to fill their life with “fake” things – could be alcohol, addiction, excessive TV, gossip, or just anything that doesn’t last or isn’t particularly meaningful – so that they are, in fact, empty. But kindness fills you with something real that lasts for a lifetime.
Be a secret angel to someone today!
