It’s a high. When I give to others in need, I gain this amazing feeling and the wave of warmth and happiness carries me through the entire day.
The closest feeling I can compare it to is falling in love. I walk around with a giddy smile on my face, catch myself humming Christmas tunes under my breath, and am just high on life.
You may wonder what prompted this “what is the meaning of life” self reflection.
Yesterday, I received this e-mail from my children’s school.
