What Makes You Feel Better About Yourself?

Dear Living and Giving readers,

What makes you feel better about yourself?

For some of it is quiet time, cherishing our gratitudes, or time with family. Perhaps it’s a hot meal, or warming our toes by a fire. Or a kind, unexpected compliment from a friend, or even someone you don’t know.

Here’s what our intern from India, Prithvi Mattur, has to say about what makes her feel better. It’s volunteering.

Below she answered one of our  Intern interview questions:

Things that makes UniversalGiving Unique:

Clarity and understanding of how change happens in the lives of the poor: UniversalGiving believes that helping people in need:

 Makes you feel better about yourself;

Connects you with another person, at least for a moment, if not for life;

Improves the life of another, at least a little;

Makes the world a better place,

And if that kindness is passed on, it can multiply, and multiply.

What a beautiful statement on how giving of ourselves can change — if not save — the world! All of her beautiful statements will make us feel better.


Thank you Prithvi, for enlightening our days.
