Life has a funny way of bouncing back what you throw at it – a boomerang effect that my parents instilled in me early on.

Life has a funny way of bouncing back what you throw at it – a boomerang effect that my parents instilled in me early on.

I know I said I wasn't going to write a blog this week so I could give full attention to our “Santa Returns” campaign delivering food and toys to needy children but this blog actually ties directly into that and I just couldn't help myself.

The idea that helping others is not just a selfless act but a remedy for the blues has been a guiding principle in my life.

This philosophy was further reinforced when I read Dale Carnegie's timeless wisdom in his classic book, "How to Stop Worrying and Start Living."

Carnegie's prescription for curing depression in 14 days revolves around being interested in others, performing daily good deeds, and finding joy in giving.

So let's explore how embracing a mindset of giving, especially through charity work, can swiftly lift our spirits and transform our lives.

The Power of Giving

Carnegie argues that to be interested in others, to love, please, and help someone, is a potent antidote to depression.

Happiness, he claims, is contagious, and the act of giving triggers a reciprocal cycle of receiving. By focusing on the well-being of others, we divert our attention from our own worries and sorrows, ushering in a renewed sense of purpose.

Charity as a Catalyst

One of the quickest ways to put this philosophy into action is by dedicating your time to a local charity.

Personally, I have witnessed the transformative power of charity events, particularly during the times I play Santa, distributing food and toys to underprivileged children.

The experience not only lifted their spirits but had an equally profound impact on my own well-being.

Breaking the Cycle

Life's challenges often lead us into a cycle of self-pity and introspection.

However, the act of giving allows us to break free from this cycle.

When engaged in charitable activities, our focus shifts from our problems to the joy of making a positive impact on someone else's life.

Suddenly, the weight on our shoulders seems lighter, and a newfound appreciation for our own blessings emerges.

A Personal Journey

For me, participating in charity events is always a great attitude adjustment with one becoming a yearly tradition, and each time I jump into the Santa suit, I am reminded of the profound effect it has on my mindset.

The mix of emotions – the joy of helping those in need, the gratitude for what I have, and the sheer happiness of giving – creates a powerful cocktail that washes away any lingering funk or negativity.

Summing it Up

In a world where it's easy to get bogged down by our own troubles, the philosophy of giving provides a refreshing perspective.

By embracing a mindset of helping others and finding joy in giving, we not only uplift those around us but also experience a positive shift in our own lives.

So, the next time you find yourself in a funk, consider making a difference in someone else's life – you might just discover the quickest remedy for shaking off the blues.

Remember, life truly is a boomerang, and what you give has a way of coming back to you in ways you might never expect.
