I can’t believe how quickly 2010 came and went.
2010 brought big changes and firsts to our family: Dillon celebrated his first year of life, we celebrated our first wedding anniversary, I became a SAHM FT, and we moved to Maryland. Oh, I really sucked at blogging.
I’m usually not one to makes big New Year’s Resolutions and I certainly never follow through. I hope to change that this year. Aside from the given “lose weight and get healthy” resolution I always make, I want to try something new this year.
I want to commit a random act of kindness everyday.
It can be as tiny as genuinely complimenting a stranger or as big as volunteering somewhere for a day.
We live in a crazy world, we’re always so busy and so consumed with our own lives to think about what is going on around us – I am guilty of it, too. When a stranger goes out of their way to do something kind, I am usually blindsided by the kindness. I want to start living my life that way. Do I have plans to become a saint and change the world? Of course not. Ideally, I would want my children to grow up in a perfect world with no crime, hate, poverty, or war but, it’s just not going to happen. However, I fully believe in karma. And, maybe..just maybe..if I help the elderly lady load groceries into her car, someone will do the same for me or my son one day or it could hopefully inspire a passerby to do the same.
So, I am making this my 365 project: One Small Act.
