20 Random Acts of Kindness





Good morning! How was your weekend? After my LONG week last week I thought I would take it easy and relax, instead I was energized to tackle a few projects around the house. I managed to clean several rooms in the house and donate 8 garbage bags to the thrift store. I still have a way to go in my purge but I am making headway. 

This past Saturday was "Random Acts of Kindness" Day and although I think the idea is great I don't think you have to limit it to one day a year. I think we should practice kindness everyday, especially on the days we feel the least kind.





Here are 20 Random Acts of Kindness that I practice.

1. Pay a stranger a compliment. Make a point of doing it every time you go out you will not believe the smile you receive in return.

2. Bring treats to your office to share with your co-workers. 

3. Write a letter of appreciation to someone who has positively influenced you. 

4. Leave your favorite book somewhere with a note for someone to enjoy it. 






5. Let someone go in front of you the next time you are in line at the store. 

6. Write letter to soldiers. 

7. Make dinner for a friend. 

8. Shovel your neighbors walkway. 

9. Send a care package to someone.






10. Bake treats and give them to friends, neighbors or people at your yoga class. 

11. Bring someone a hot cup of coffee/cocoa. 

12. Spread some encouragement online. 

13. Send card or a handwritten note to a friend. 

14. Take the time to really listen to someone.




15. Take care of the chores that you know your significant other hates. 

16. Text a friend of family member just to let them know you are thinking about them. 

17. Take your magazines to the gym for others to read. 

18. Give a bouquet of flowers to someone. 

19. Leave a gift card or a treat for your mail person, Fed-ex, UPS or other delivery person. 

20. Be kind to yourself. 





I am sure that you have your own ideas and ways that you spread kindness and I would love to hear about them so please share. 

Have a great day!

Friday Favorites from Heather Bullard, The Chic Site, Lavender & Macarons, Medium and More


Good morning. This week has been dragging so I am happy its Friday. I am not sure what the problem was but everyday was a struggle to get up and get moving and then the days just crawled. I would work for a what seemed like a few hours only to look up and see the clock had only moved an hour. Needless to say my sluggishness has left me a little behind. Oh well, I will catch up next week. This weekend I have other plans and they do not include work.

Once of the things on my list is this Lemon Pepper Pappardelle Chicken Soup from Heather Bullard. I have not made any chicken soup this year and I think this version looks delicious.

I am making this Rigatoni with Spicy Ragu from The Chic Site for dinner tonight. I could use a little comfort food.

I want to make these Chocolate eclairs from Lavender & Macarons. Don't they look great!




Apple Cinder Vinegar Is a Wonder Serum! If you don't already know all of the great things it does for your body make sure to read this article. 


LIFE

I love this article 77 Important Truths I've learned About Life. In fact I love it so much I have printed it out and tacked it on my inspiration board. 

Random but interesting fact. 


Books 

In college I earned a "Certificate" in Holocaust Literature so this list of 46 Powerful Books About the Holocaust caught my eye. 

I am a huge fan or Tim Ferriss, if you are as well this Excerpts from Tim Ferriss' Book Tribe of Mentors is a great article. 



Did you read, watch, listen to or make anything interesting or noteworthy? If so please share I love reading and seeking out the movies, books, podcasts and recipes that you suggest. 

I hope that you have a great weekend!
