Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared. ~ Buddha ~
Unlike most everything in life that is shared, happiness can be given to an infinite number of people, and your happiness will not have been diminished by the slightest bit. And you may find that you have even more happiness after you give some away. It’s easy to see how this happens as you already do this in your life.
Every time you cheer someone up, you have lit their candle from yours. Is yours diminished? Only if you choose to allow it to happen. The next time you are feeling cranky, maybe the person trying to talk to you isn’t trying to further annoy you, but to spread a little happiness from the flame of their candle.
Happiness can be like that. It has an amazing tendency to multiply when it is shared.
