Spreading Sunshine and Random Acts of Kindness

Now this is what I am talking about! I woke up this morning and headed out with Tilly the Tornado for our morning walk. What greeted me outside of my building? A bright yellow flyer with the words “Acts of Kindness for Yourself” in big bold letters.  It made me smile and noticed another one across the street. Before I knew it, I was crossing the street to read “Acts of Kindness for Friends,” and then another one a block away, “I Dare You To…” with peel-away tabs with suggestions like, “Make a list of the things you like about yourself,” “Connect with an old friend,” “Offer to Babysit” or “Send a funny gift” with Dares like “Pay for a Police Officer’s coffee and donut and say ‘thank you’.”

What a brilliant idea! Yellow flyer person…I commend you.

I wonder how many people walked by and took a moment to read it and smiled.


About thepickmeup

I am an ordinary thirty-something living a pretty ordinary life. I enjoy my wine, food, photography, traveling and the great outdoors. But lately, I am not happy with the state of my world. Particularly, with the increase in the complete and utter lack of consideration for other people. As I near the age and time in my life where I consider bringing offspring into the world, I wonder whether I should. Maybe I can make a change. Could ordinary me make a change through awareness by spreading word of good deeds to inspire and motivate others to do the same? I don't know, but it's worth the experiment to find out.
