Things you can do

We've been on this big random act of kindness kick around here.  Practicing random acts of kindness - expecting nothing in return.  Just hoping to provide smiles or even a kind thought to random strangers.

A friend of mine asked some of the things we do. How can you do, and not also spend a bunch of money.  So, I'm going to share - not to receive recognition, but to share so YOU may also participate. 

Here we go:

  • When you are driving down the highway, let someone over - even if you just let the last two people "in line" over
  • We have a local little Japanese restaurant in the neighborhood whom mails out coupons.  Take the extra coupons and give to another table.
  • Compliment someone on their outfit/hair/shoes, etc.  Everyday.
  • Send a note to someone to just say hi
  • Plant flowers - in someone else's garden
  • Let someone go ahead of you in line
  • If you are the type whom sends in money for rebates, send the rebate to a charity or a child or someone - you will never know if they have received it - and they don't know whom to think.
  • On a cold day - hand out cups of coffee to the city workers.  On hot days - water.
  • Volunteer
Simple things to pay it forward.  The greatest moment you will ever receive is to give, expecting  nothing in return.
