Sharing Happiness

April 18, 2011 in Commercial Break

Are you a giving person or a receiving person?

According to the Japanese blood type personality, people with type O blood are the givers (logically makes sense la). And i’m an Type O. In certain ways i think it is true.

Take buying gifts for example. I always enjoy buying gifts for other people than for myself because the feeling of making other people happy when you put your thoughts into something has a much longer lingering effect on happiness than buying something i want.

I don’t know why recently i’ve been losing so much interest on the guilty pleasure of pursuing material things. The excitement of retail therapy is so short it’s almost not worth the money spent. Instead i find that i gain more gratification doing little nice things for people i care about and receiving a thank you, or exchanging friendly and sincere greeting with my apartment security guards, or laugh at funny tweets, or tweeting something funny and make people laugh, or even just throwing rubbish properly (knowing that i did my part to preserve the earth or whatever).

Either i’m getting old or i’m just going through a zen phase. iii

But I think there must be a happiness that is for sure more profound and more significant than just getting yourself the latest pair of in-season wedges. And i believe if you share it it’s just like a happy circle loop that keeps coming back to you.

The other day i came across a commercial video about “Sharing Happiness”, and i thought it was quite cute, here it is:

Before i found my profound happiness i think maybe i could just use little ones and share it with people around me.

And i have decided to do my own “sharing happiness” video!

Even not for the paper tossing and balloon popping, it’s still worth it to see how i suck at acting.
