How to Use Magic to Make Yourself Happy
Why is being a magician so cool? There are a few reasons, but one of my favorites is working for special people and wonderful groups.
I recently volunteered for the Jewish Family Services of Colorado and their residences at the JFS Group Home. It was just a casual deal with a couple of dozen folks. But the best part was working with the residents — awesome adults with special needs. By the looks on their faces they had a good time.
But I’m certain that I got the better deal. I was the one who felt great that night. I was the one who laughed the hardest. And I was the one who left thinking it might have been the best show in ages.
What’s my point? If you want to help yourself, help others. If you want to feel good, make others feel good. To be honest, this is a lesson I often forget. But those great people made my day.
Thanks Kids. It was an absolute pleasure.

I couldn’t agree more with your post. Watching the audience watching you perform mysteries for them gives us magicians the best feelings. We laugh because you laugh, we smile because you smile. There is no better job in the world than to help take people away from their troubles (even if it’s just for a little while) and help them remember the feeling of awe and mystery we all had as kids.
