Everyone has the ability to add something magnificent to the world. Some people can sing a pretty song. Others save lives. Others are role models influencing generations to come. Everyone has their own special piece to add to life’s puzzle.
When I was a beginning blogger, I belonged to a support group on Facebook made up of wonderful women. These women wrote blogs and are involved in a wide variety of social media networks. One day, one of the members started a procedure that reviewed each member’s blog and offered constructive criticism. My blog went through this process. I improved my blog in large part a result of the comments I received from group members.
One of the group members commented that a nice header that reflected my personality would be a great improvement. I agreed I needed a better header, but put the idea on hold because I did not have any good ideas for the change. Without me asking, this woman stepped in, designed an amazing header, offered it to me. It became part of my blog for quite a few years.
It was AWESOME. Her improvements were amazing. My husband and daughter looked at her changes and agreed they were an incredible improvement to the blog.

Sometimes it is magnificent to add something special to someone else’s life.
I think we should all take the opportunity to do something incredibly kind for someone else without being asked. There are two rewards that result from you doing kindnesses for others. First, the person you are kind to has some sunshine added to her life. Secondly, you have sunshine added to your life. It feels good to do something good for another person. When the person you have done something kind for really likes what you did, it makes you feel really good. In addition, very often, the person you did something kind for wants to return the favor, wants to do something kind for someone else.
It works that way for me. Whenever someone does something kind for me, I appreciate it. I know that no one owes me kindness and generosity, so I appreciate when kindness and generosity come my way. It always makes me go find someone to show unexpected kindness and generosity. Good things, good acts are as contagious as the common cold. So, get up, go out, do something kind for someone who is not expecting it from you.
So the question for you this magnificent day is what magnificent thing can you add to someone else’s world?
