In life, we often think of just ourselves and our families, forgetting that there are those who are more in need than us. We go about in life, searching for happiness, searching for contentment, searching for money, searching for whatever it is that would make our lives better. Often, it takes years and years before we finally achieve our goals and find the ultimate happiness we had sought out to find in the first place.

Now, there’s a life lesson in this post. What happens when 50 people were asked to enter a room filled with balloons? Those were no ordinary balloons, mind you. And, no, they did not get laughing gas, dying in hysterical laughter. What they experienced was something totally awesome!

We’re not here to preach, but to simply share a wonderful life lesson to everyone who cares to listen. It really feels great to give to others, sharing with them, giving them happiness. In turn, our deeds may have taken something from us, whether money, time, or effort, yet you get something priceless in return.
