DO SOMETHING NICE FOR SOMEONE ELSE AND DON'T TELL ANYONE ABOUT IT. by Give God Glory Ministries on Wednesday, November 21, 2012 at 8:54pm · . While many of us frequently do nice things for others, we are almost certain to mention our acts of kindness to someone else, secretly seeking their approval. When we share our own niceness or generosity with someone else, it makes us feel like we are thoughtful people, it reminds us of how nice we are and how deserving we are of kindness. While acts of kindness are inherently wonderful, there is something even more magical about doing something thoughtful but mentioning it to no one, ever. We always feel good when we give to others. Rather than diluting the positive feelings by telling others about our own kindness, by keeping it to ourselves we get to retain all the positive feelings. It's really true that one should give for the sake of giving, not to receive something in return. This is precisely what we are doing when we don't mention our kindness to others---our rewards are the warm feelings that come from the act of giving. The next time we do something really nice for someone else, keep it to yourself and revel in the abundant joy of giving. :)
