The 40 day challenge has been going really well. I must admit, I was concerned about doing some act of kindness e-v-e-r-y-d-a-y for 40 days in a row, but I have been something every day. I used the planning calendar and tips from the Positive in Purpose website and was able to easily come up with something to do for all but eight days. Today, I still have four days that don’t have a designated act of kindness written in, but I am not concerned. If you are around others, there will always be an opportunity to do something kind for someone.
Things come up. An acquaintance and Facebook friend, put out a plea to help her family with college expenses for six family members all going to college at the same time. A senior citizen dropped her credit card in the bank and it went under a table where she could not reach it. I read about a need in my community that I was able to fill. Just be observant and do what you can.
Kid President once said, “If you can’t think of anything nice to say, you’re not thinking hard enough.” Giving a sincere compliment is an act of kindness, but I’d like to stretch that sentiment a little to include other acts of kindness. If you can’t think of anything nice to say or do, you’re not thinking hard enough.
