The art of Giving, Sharing and Kindness are special gifts that we all possess in our heart and soul. As time changes, becoming more complex and a hectic pace of life, with greed, selfishness and everybody for oneself coming into play, we might have lost the art of Giving, Sharing and Kindness. There was a 3 minute TV commercial produced in Thailand that was recently been receiving rave reviews and sharing on the internet and social media platforms. Watching the TV commercial was very humbling and heart warming, I watched a few videos produced in Thailand and they were just that special to drive the messages across to their audience (Even though there was a commercial element behind it).
This particular video was known as Giving, while this video was tied to a telecommunications company and you can check this post by Gawker here for more information. Let’s put the commercial element aside for this video, the meanings and messages were about Giving, Sharing and Kindness.
Learning through the journey of personal development and personal learning, the art and gift of Giving and Not Expecting Anything in Return, is something that the human race face greater difficulty with in our modern society of wants and expectations. When I Give, it’s a blessing to others, at times, it got to a point of overused to the next stage of being abused of my giving and kindness. There were times I struggled with Giving and Giving, with people kept coming back for more. That’s why there were instances whereby I stopped Giving to some of them.
There were times when Giving, Helping, Sharing and Kindness returning the favour to my career, businesses, interests, hobbies, business and social networking, photography. They helped me to grow as a person, stronger and polished into a smoother stone than a rough uncut stone, something that I am very humbled and grateful for. I will try my best to continue the art of Giving and Not Expecting Anything in Return, although the challenges to fulfil it can be at times difficult because it showed the side of the human being that had feelings, emotions, thoughts and wants in a society chasing for achievements, recognitions, fame, greed, wealth.
Here are two the great scholars with their words of wisdom
“The more credit you give away, the more will come back to you. The more you help others, the more they will want to help you.” Source: Brainyquote
“Whoever renders service to many puts himself in line for greatness – great wealth, great return, great satisfaction, great reputation, and great joy.” Source: Brainyquote
“Giving is better than Receiving because Giving starts the Receiving Process” – Source: Brainyquote
It was times like this that such a heartwarming and touching video that drives a message across to us in our daily living about Giving, Sharing and Kindness (let’s put the commercial element aside and ask ourselves truthfully) have we been avoiding Giving, Sharing and being Kind? Is it time to Make A Difference, Make An Impact and Pay-It-Forward by Giving, Sharing and be Kind?
