Random Act of Kindness

The weather is here and I wish I was beautiful. It is 85 degrees with no wind and I should feel joyous. I live in paradise. Last night we watched the most amazing sunset over the ocean after a spectacular Italian meal.
I am feeling blue nonetheless.
Maybe it is the miserable, sexually confused woman who keeps dragging us into court on worthless and pathetic charges.
Maybe it is the fact that the bank just raised our mortgage, with no more explanation besides they can?
Maybe its because I have to take my son to court AGAIN today.
Maybe its because my husband is SUPER grumpy with his gimpiness and quite ready to be riding in the ocean and not hobbling.

But I am picking up my chin, and going to go out there with a positive attitude. I am going to practice One Random Act of Kindness to someone who doesn't expect it. I'm going to hug the mailman or feed the meter for someone or buy groceries for a starving family. Not sure what yet, I'm going let the moment take me and surprise all.

You should do the same: One Random Act of Kindness and report back here. I dare you.


  1. Amidst all of that, you still retain your heart. Kudos to you!

  2. Such is life! I like your attitude :)

  3. My act of kindness was giving a lady who just lost her home free shipping for all her treasures to her mom. She was going to store until she finds a house. Sad, but made her happy. I'm going to try to do it every day. Made a shitty day tolerable

  4. If only everybody's doing that..
