Do You Enjoy Spreading Joy In Life?
Recently I was going through our inbox of previous read emails and one in particular really stood out to me. This person was beyond excited to have received their gift basket just in perfect timing and was beyond happy with the goodies inside (who doesn’t love receiving chocolates, right?)! Sometimes words lose meaning when sent over text instead of voice, but for some odd reason this person’s email really stood out. We get testimonials around the year for a variety of reasons but this one had something I like to refer to as JOY!
So I decided to look up the formal definition to see if it would resonate, here is what dictionary has to say about the world joy: “A state of complete bliss and felicity – to be happy” – I found this definition to be exactly what this customer had expressed to us. So the question I asked myself was, “Could sending a gift basket really produce a state of joy, happiness, and bliss?” As I thought about it more, I came to the conclusion of yes, absolutely it could.
I’m sure you heard this phrase at some point in your life: It’s the little things that count or It’s the little things that make you happy. Well, after shipping out thousands upon thousands of gift baskets and having such a high customer satisfaction rate, there is no question in my mind that’s true. And it goes beyond the fact that our baskets are filled with delicious treats, snacks, sweets, fine wines, and so on. I think the contents of a basket is very important to ensure quality and variety, but I think it goes a bit beyond that.
It’s the intent that someone has and the feeling the recipient receives that creates such happiness. I can remember how good it feels to receive something out of the blue, completely unexpected, from a friend or family member. It’s a pretty awesome feeling! Add to that a beautiful greeting card message inside with some nice thoughts expressed in writing. Finally while you’re taking it all in, you get to munch on chocolate, cheese, cookies, and whatever else maybe inside. Wow, what an awesome experience this is. So if you enjoy spreading joy, happiness, and bliss in life, do something nice for a loved one today and watch what happens
PS: In memory of Whitney Houston, I thought it would be cute to post one of her most popular songs, let me know what you think?
