Do One Random Act of Kindness Today

Do one random act of kindness today! Tweet about it (or add a comment below, or email me directly) and get another person to do the same.

I have been down with bronchitis for most of the holidays, not able to think much, read much or do anything for that matter. But I was all cozy and comfortable at home, all bundled up in a warm comforter sitting by the fire, beside our beautiful Christmas tree. I managed to see a doctor to get the drugs I needed (all legal!) to stop coughing my guts out (sorry that’s the way it really felt ). I took nice warm showers to help me feel better. My loving “caretakers” brought me warm soup, tea, water or anything I needed without me having to move! (Just living the dream!)

With the year coming to an end, many of us are getting ready (and even excited, or is it just me?) to update our various financial metrics. It has been such a great financial year for the market. But this week none of that mattered, I was in a complete fog (still am actually). All I wanted was warmth, lots of rest and somebody to take care of me.  And lucky me, I got it all!

But how many people out there don’t even get that?   I am only talking about basic needs. How many people struggle, not to get to FI (financial Independence) but just to meet their basic needs? Yes maybe some of them are just lazy or not trying hard enough, but there can be a lot of valid reasons why people are struggling: physical or mental health, addiction, loneliness, lay-off… So what better way to end the year and show how thankful we are for what we have by doing one random act of kindness today! And enroll as many people as we can to do the same.

It doesn’t matter what you do, just DO IT! Get out of your comfort zone and do one random act of kindness today!

Are you up for the challenge? Tweet, comment or email back with what you did and get another person to do the same. #Doonerandomactofkindnesstoday.

One random act of kindness at a time

Wishing you all a Happy New Year.

  1. I hope you are feeling better! TBH I haven’t really done a random act of kindness….I get so caught up in my immediate family stuff over the holidays…Our family traveled to my hometown for a big reunion, which is a mixed bag, and I end up only thinking mostly about myself, ugh. I know I should be more thankful. I guess I did give $100 donation to a young new blogger who I don’t really know to help fund her friends’ mission in South America. That’s the best I’ve got! Here’s to doing better in 2018!
