Sometimes it’s hard to see the bright side of things.
That’s one of the many reasons I am so grateful for this project. Despite the post-holiday blues, a virus that’s been plaguing our household for weeks and just really missing some important people, kindness has become a bright spot in each day.
Here are the first 15 Acts of Kindness that I’ve completed (only 350 more to go!):
15. Supported local and not-so-local Girl Scout Troops.
#14. Sent an email to a former boss who inspired me.
#13. Donated gently-used books to the Wonderland Book Savers
#12. Wrote a positive review for Target in Trumbull, CT.
#11. Shared that same hilarious book with friends.
#10. Bought a hilarious book for myself (sometimes it’s good to be kind to yourself).
#9. Secretly hid “love” notes in our kids’ lunchboxes.
#8. Sent an email complimenting a friend first thing in the morning. (This was inspired by a LunchBox Love Family Kindness daily email #LBLKindnessChallenge http://www.sayplease.com)
#7. Stepped out of my comfort zone.
#6. Thanked a first-time Uber driver with a Starbucks gift card for getting me to the airport safely and on time.
#5. Picked up trash in a parking lot.
#4. Left a Starbucks gift card with a NoochieRAKs card and YAB (You Are Beautiful) sticker in the safety brochure on the airplane.
#3. Donated gift cards to Bridgeport residents displaced by fire.
#2. Gave a compliment to a stranger.
#1. Donated to the Vanessa Rich Leadership Fund at the National Head Start Association.
