This story is about a beautiful rich lady who complained to her psychiatrist that she felt that her whole life was empty, it had no meaning.

So, the lady visited a counselor to seek out ways to achieve happiness.

The counselor said to the rich lady, “I’m going to ask Shiela, my receptionist here to tell you how she found happiness. All I want you to do is listen to her.”

So Shiela came into the room and told her story:

“Well, my husband died of Cancer and three months later my only son was killed in a car accident.

I had nobody, I had nothing left, I couldn’t sleep, I couldn’t eat, I never smiled at anyone, I even thought of taking my own life.

Then one evening a little kitten followed me home from work.

Somehow I felt sorry for that kitten. It was cold outside, so I decided

to let the kitten in.

I got it some milk, and the kitten licked the plate clean.

Then it purred and rubbed against my leg and for the first time in months, I smiled.

Then I stopped to think, if helping a little kitten could make me smile,

maybe doing something for people could make me happy.

So the next day I baked some biscuits and took them to a neighbor who was sick in bed.

Every day I tried to do something nice for someone.

It made me so happy to see them happy.

Today, I don’t know of anybody who sleeps and eats better than I do.

I’ve found happiness, by giving it to others.”

When she heard that the rich lady cried.

She had everything that money could buy, but she had lost the things which money cannot buy.

Remember what Buddha said, “Happiness comes when your work and words are of benefit to yourself and others.”

The way to create happiness is :

“Keep your heart free from hate,

your mind from worry.

Live simply, expect little, give much.

Fill your life with love, scatter sunshine.

Forget self, think of others,

Do as you would be done by,

Try this for a week & you will be surprised.”

Starting this weekend,

Make someone Happy and find your own happiness along the way and stay blessed forever.
