“Thousands of candles can be lit
from a single candle, and the life
of the candle will not be shortened.
Happiness never decreases
by being shared.”
Like the candle, when we brighten someone’s day, cause them to laugh or smile, demonstrate kindness in a myriad of ways we are not less than we were before and yet we have extended our reach to as many as we decide to influence.
Yet, unlike the candle, it seems to me that this candle is not only energized, and improved by the experience of influencing others, it is enhanced and expanded by it.
Now isn’t that an interesting thought…
What a great return on investment!
