Stories of Kindness from Around the World

The change inside that brings joy!

--by shardagandhi2002, posted Dec 29, 2015
Today I was in a generous mood. I handed over a  good sum of money to the some people who are in great need. Its very difficult for me to part with cash. I experience a lot of fear and insecure feeling. I believe I do not have enough for myself. I reached deep within myself to give out the amount.

I could hear my heart beat and fear rising.  But when I looked up to give and saw the joy on the peoples faces it wiped my insecure feeling. I FELT SO PROUD of myself. I patted myself on the back and called myself a brave girl.

Have a great day being awesome!

Sometimes I manage to write immediately and sometimes I have not been able to connect. I do not know at that time the connection of my challenges. Hope to continue. Lots of love to each one.
