“Happiness is like a boomerang – give it to others and it comes back to you.”

At work, and everywhere else, life lately has surely been a bit more difficult and daunting. In light of the challenges we all face daily, it can be difficult to find and feel happiness in our lives. I have found a way to do so, and I’d like to share it with you. After almost every conversation I have, no matter how seemingly trivial – it could be the cashier in the drugstore, or the Customer Service Representative at my bank, I say, “Oh, yes, one more thing . . . would you please do me one small favor?” Almost always they respond, “Sure, what’s that?” And then I pause and say “Please stay healthy.” The instantaneous facial feedback is so, so nice. It’s almost always a smile, a laugh, and a comment like, “Sure, you, do the same . . . you sure made my day.” It’s a small thing, but there’s no doubt about it, it produces a nice moment of “happy” inside that person. Always a smile, always a laugh, always a “light” in their eyes, perhaps even a tear of joy. A random, unexpected positive connection. Of course, you can say the same thing to people you know, and those you love. No matter who it is, your giving them a brief, unexpected moment of “happy” will surely give you a moment of happy, in return. I urge you to try it.

Oh, I almost forgot: Would you please do me a small favor . . . stay healthy, because if you stay healthy, I have a better chance of staying healthy, too. So, let’s do it together, for each other, just like a boomerang.

This little tidbit of happy wisdom was sent to us by Parin S. of Waldo, Maine. Your “boomerang” quote, Parin, has now gone worldwide. Hope that makes you smile.
