How to be a better person

Tuesday, April 16, 2013

I found this on Wisebread and it was written by Nora Dunn

I think it would be kinda neat to try 1 a day

1.Say thanks and mean it. (Here are 25 really nice ways to do just that).
2.Smile at a stranger.
3.Learn to lean into vulnerability and express your true self. (Watch this video as an inspirational primer).
4.Perform one senseless act of kindness per day.
5.Take a sabbatical and learn something new about yourself in the process.
6.Do something you've never done before.
7.Set goals wisely and reward yourself for making progress.
8.Start a conversation with a random stranger (in line at the grocery store for example).
9.Create a vision board to visualize and achieve the life of your dreams.
10.Help somebody.
11.Reflect on the amazing moments in your life, and figure out how to replicate them.
12.Be 100% honest for an entire day.
13.Be generous but not to your own detriment.
14.Express disagreement towards injustice.
15.Learn something new. For example, learn how to change your life and design the lifestyle you want.
16.Interact with nature. Go for a walk using all your senses, start a garden, or just admire a beautiful sunset.
17.Have fun with a brainstorm session of 100 ways to change your life in 20 minutes.
18.Cook a meal for somebody.
19.Save money. (Here are 37 ways start saving today).
20.Try letting somebody in line in front of you or driving consciously and kindly, and see if it actually makes you late. (You might surprise yourself).
21.Give your kids a leg up in life and make finance a family affair.
22.Learn about a worthwhile cause, and get involved.
23.Choose three ways to be nicer to the environment and implement them. (For example, reduce your standby power consumption, make your office green, start a coffee cup revolution, or conserve water).
24.Create your own definition of financial freedom, and inject a dose of passion into your budget.
25.Regain your youth, and play with some children.

    That list is the BOMB...I'm printing it off and putting it into action! emoticon Thanks for the share. The hubs and I have a MOST fav thing in the whole wide world to do and that is when we go out to eat...pick a table of people we think look really interesting and worthy and secretly pay their food tab for them. It's the BEST to see the look of surprise and complete joy go over their faces...then have them scan the crowd to see if they can weed out the 'do~gooder'...we have to pinch ourselves to keep from looking suspicious. emoticon

Absolutely THE BEST...and I secretly try to get a glance at their food and pick out healthy eaters...they deserve to be rewarded! YAY!

P.S. There aren't many... emoticon soooo I just go with the flow! emoticon emoticon
