Helping people is the origin of happiness

 
Three things happen to highlight to me on how helping people can simply bring happiness. 

♥ This morning, our housemate Amirah kindly offered to throw a bag of rubbish that I placed near door. I was about to combine it with the leaves of strawberries after finish eating them. She is an inspiration for me to be kind and helpful to people.  

♥ The main message of a book entitled "The $100 Startup: Reinvent the Way You Make a Living, Do What You Love, and Create a New Future" written by Chris Guillebeau is about how startups create value by helping people. 

♥ While commuting, I recall a quote from my days in late 1990s: 助人为快乐之本, which literally means "Helping people is the origin of happiness".
