Booker T. Washington was absolutely spot on with his assertion about the happiest people are the ones who do the most for others. The more we reach out and actually help those around us, the more joy we experience.
The deepest joy we can know is to give ourselves for others. Severing those whose need is the greatest brings a satisfaction and and joy found nowhere else.
It’s about giving. It’s about serving. It’s about loving. It’s what makes life worth living.
