Joy of giving

Currently many things are being said about women’s welfare by the feminists and others who advocate women's rights. This is the time when we must ask ourselves what are We doing for our lesser privileged counterparts? Yes it is very important for us to be really happy to feel one very special type of joy and that is Joy of Giving! I wish all of us to feel Joy of Giving. 
Now, when we talk about ‘Giving’ people generally think it’s all about material things. Some of us may think that we don’t have much to give away. But I must say here that it’s absolutely wrong to think this way. Giving can include many things which are not just material. So here’s a little help to all those who are willing to get Joy of Giving in their life.

It’s said ‘time is money’. So time is something very precious. In fact many people have lots of money but no time. So in case you have some spare time, you can give it to someone who needs it. People living in old age home need it the most. Sit near old women and just let them speak out their heart to you. It will give them immense joy. By bringing smile on their face you’ll yourself feel great joy of giving.

All of us possess a very valuable thing and that is knowledge. If you can manage to take some time out of your daily routine or even once a week do give it to poor kids who need to be taught.  You can teach kids of you maid,cook or servant some Language,Maths or Drawing or anything you can. It will definitely matter a lot to them and to you it will bring beautiful Joy of Giving.

If you can not manage giving away your time or knowledge one thing that can be given freely is Love. Yes, even if you don’t have any other thing to offer you can always offer your love to those in need around you. If a person is sad and you just simply listen to his woes and hug her tightly saying I’m with you, believe me, this is the best thing you can do. I remember the Joy of Giving love this way, when knowing not how to console a colleague who had just lost her beloved husband, hugged her tightly. I  could feel, how relieved she was with this little act of love.

Money can’t buy everything but sharing it with someone needy surely brings joy to both; giver & receiver. Donate a little sum of your money every month or as often as you can to anyone who is in need. Don’t ever think it’s reducing your balance. It is in fact increasing your balance of good deeds. Monetary help is a big help to the needy.

Giving away goods is also a genuine way to help others which brings you true Joy of Giving. Goods can be anything of use to others like clothes, food items, books, utensils, furniture, electronic gadgets etc. For women it will be good if you give them articles to maintain their personal hygiene. You may also give away some of your cosmetics as every woman loves to look good what if she is not so privileged as you are.

Hope you all lovely people enjoy giving and getting Joy of Giving every day in your life! Learn and celebrate Giving!
