 Prescriptions for the Soul: 365 Prescriptions for the Soul - Prescription #167: Guaranteed Happiness 
 
What do you think can guarantee happiness? A poem I read entitled "How to Be Happy" revealed a simple answer. It said, "Do something for somebody, quick!"

Now, you may think you have more problems than anyone else on the planet, so perhaps this answer seems like it wouldn’t work for you. But if you first accept the fact that you are not the only one with problems, and then follow what the poem states, you will be surprised at the outcome. So "even if your earthly affairs are in a terrible whirl, do something for somebody, quick!"

When I think about how I can help others I feel a lot better than I do when I am dwelling on my problems. When I follow the advice in the poem and find others to help, I have noticed how many people start doing nice things for me in return.

So do something for somebody today and watch what happens in your life. Even small gifts of love like sending a greeting card or remembering someone’s birthday can reconnect us with life and its meaning.
