Invitation to 58 acts of kindness

On January 8th, a birthday I share with Elvis, David Bowie and my Uncle Rab, I will be 58 (although I don’t feel a day over 35). Recently an acquaintance, Bunni, extended an unexpected kindness to me. Then I experienced several other acts of kindness. As an expression of gratitude for the good that has come to me, I thought it might be fun to ‘pay it forward’ by generating 58 acts of kindness as a birthday celebration.

You are invited to participate and leave a comment about what act of kindness you performed. Because I know I work best with a deadline, I’d like to have the acts of kindness completed or scheduled¬†by February 8.

I’m simmering on the acts of kindness I’d like to do. ¬†One I’ve already committed to is washing the towels for a week at the yoga studio where I practice, Yoga in Common. This task, as well as countless others, falls to the owner of the studio. Since she generously allowed me to start a women’s group at the studio last January, I thought it would be fun to take this off her plate. I’m on the lookout for more opportunities!

And you?

    I think washing the YIC towels for a week was a fun out of the box idea. We always focus on the less fortunate and forget those that have done something special for us. I am finding it difficult to commit to time for others though, even though my parents are no longer with me, and I don’t have to go home to Greensboro every weekend anymore. My plan is to be more accessible to my elderly neighbors, who could use a kind word or a visit, or even a grocery run. These people were so kind to me when I lost family, and most are widows and widowers who have lost someone of their own before I knew them. I’m glad to be challenged, and look forward to hearing what others have planned for 2015!
