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!
