It’s The Small Things in Life that matter the most… try one of these out of the blue ways to make someone’s day
Another bill. Another work day. Another load of laundry. Another empty tank of gas. Another dirty diaper.
In the mix of it all, imagine getting an old fashioned letter in the mail, one where your address is hand written on the envelope or imagine receiving an unexpected gift from a friend.
It wouldn’t matter how long the letter or the size of the gift, it would instantly put a smile on your face, wouldn’t it? So let’s all just sit around and wait for that happy moment when someone surprises us.
But wait, there would be no kindness in this world, no unexpected acts of generosity without GIVERS, you know, the ones that do the unexpected acts of kindness. I reminded myself of this today, to not wait for someone else to be the giver, but instead jump at the opportunity to do it myself.
Life is too short, it goes by too fast and if you aren’t careful it will pass you by. It’s the small things in life that make life worth living. You know the saying “be the change you wish to see in the world.”
Why not pick a friend, a fellow mama, a family member or a complete stranger and become the reason for the smile on their face?
Here are a couple quick ideas to get you started but don’t limit yourself to this list, think outside the box, there are no limits.
- Mail a real old fashioned note, one that requires a stamp
- Buy a gift off amazon and have it shipped directly to a friend
- When running your errands around town, swing by a friend’s house and leave a note taped to their front door or car windshield
- Call, text or Facebook message someone you look up to and let them know why you appreciate them.
