Whether these good people are creating beauty through building relationships or helping others achieve their personal success, each small act has a ripple effect. They don't just help themselves, but they also have an effect on those around them. Making life beautiful for someone else is one of the best things we can do each day. The great thing is, they don't need to be large things. Opening the door for someone, baking cookies with a child, helping your neighbor when their car is in the garage. These some acts of kindness can brighten someone's day while making you feel truly good inside.
Sometimes, all someone needs is the emotional support of simply being there for them when they're down, or hugging a young child who feels alone. maybe it's as simple as picking up the phone and calling someone we love who's far away. Volunteering is one of the easiest and more beneficial ways we can make the life of someone more beautiful. Consider spending time at children's hospital or a nursing home. And don't forget your animal friends! You can make their life beautiful, too. Become a foster parent or volunteer at an animal shelter. Offer to take your shut-in neighbor's dog for a nice long walk!
And don't neglect your own family. Opportunities abound for making their lives more beautiful. How about reading to them, preparing a favorite meal instead of grabbing take-out on your way home from work, or simply watching a movie together?
Your own life could probably use a little "sprucing up" as well. When we feel good about ourselves and our lives, it makes it easier to care for others. So, why not spend a little time today listening to your favorite music, reading passages from a beloved book, nibbling a piece of decadent chocolate, or relaxing in a scented bath? You deserve it!
And while your busy making the lives of others more beautiful today, don't forget to post #MakingLifeBeautifulDay on all your social media. This will remind others to make their own life, as well as the life of someone else, a little nice today.
