Make Life Beautiful

“There is nothing more beautiful than someone who goes out of their way to make life beautiful for others.” ~Mandy Hale …

Rachel Joy Scott, the first student killed in the Columbine High School massacre in 1999, wrote this in her journal:

“I have this theory that if one person can go out of their way to show compassion, then it will start a chain reaction of the same. People will never know how far a little kindness can go.”

What would my life be like, if I could go out of my way to spread love, compassion, and kindness to everyone I meet? How would I feel? I am sure Mandy would tell me that I would feel amazing–beautiful, happy, full of purpose and full of life.

To set it as a priority “to make life beautiful for others,” is such a wonderful way of living life. After all, life is short in the grand scheme of things, and to focus on making it a better place for others, goes on to make it a better place for everyone, including ourselves. The love we spread comes full circle back to us and fills our hearts and souls with lasting joy.

Bring beauty into the lives of others today.

Questions to consider:

How can the love, compassion, and kindness you show to one person, affect others?

What are some ways in which you can make life beautiful for others?

What are some of the potential positive effects of doing so? Are there any negative effects?

For further thought:

“Let no one come to you without leaving better and happier.” ~Mother Teresa
