26 Acts of Kindness
Thursday, December 20, 2012
Before class this morning, I was reading MSNBC and came across this article. I'm going to admit before writing more that I've been a little out of touch with most news, due to crazy life (more on that later). But I'm getting caught up!
Here's the link to show you what's up: usnews.nbcnews.com/_news
The gist of the story is to commit 26 acts of kindness you might not otherwise for the victims of Sandy Hook in honor of those that passed.
Ok, granted, you should always commit acts of kindness, blah blah blah, but when we all get busy, we tend to forget to do things with intention. And I feel like, for me at least, that's a part of it. Taking the time to intentionally complete an act of kindness. And moreso for me, doing it for a stranger. I could easily "do" 26 nice things for my kids throughout today, but... I don't know... It just doesn't feel quite the same. That's something I'd normally do, know what I mean? This could just be me being a weirdo.
So that's my goal over the next couple of weeks. 26 Acts of Kindness. It doesn't always have to be for a stranger, no. Just using that as an example of something I rarely do.
Ok, I started this blog like a half hour ago and then had to explain five billion things to five billion students.
Ok. So now I started this blog hours ago and now just getting back to it... Um.
I'm confused with life. So I'm just going to shut up and say hi!
