With all of the snow that we got yesterday, the 5 households in the neighborhood got out and helped each other with driveways and checked on each other.

Our street did get plowed a bit early yesterday because one of our neighbors was taken by ambulance and they couldn't get up the street to her, so the paramedics walked up the street with their equipment to help her and wheeled her down the street in a chair after the plow came through.

One of the neighbors is going to take care of her pets and we all are going to watch the house and watch for any of her family to come by so we can get updates.

I hope that everyone on here was able to stay warm and safe!

I'm finding this challenge a difficult one to do right now. I haven't been in the best of moods lately and thought that this could help, but I found myself being a grump yesterday and it's difficult to be kind while in that mood.

Today is a well-being activity:

Last week was The National Random Acts of Kindness Week, but why single out one week a year....?

The Task/Challenge: Find 3 acts of random kindness that you can perform for another person. If the situation arises today where you feel frustrated or angry, take a moment and smile. If you can let it go and move on to the next moment. If you make a mistake above all be kind to yourself forgive yourself and know that it is another opportunity to learn from and gain self improvement.

When you do something nice for another person you’ll also get a positive burst of emotion that will make you happier. Some studies even suggest that volunteering provides the same emotional boost as a win fall.

Pay It Forward:
Some easy ways to make a difference:
§ Read to a child or elderly person
§ Bake Cookies and take them to a homeless Shelter
§ Praise someone for their accomplishments
§ Learn to forgive and let someone know that all is forgiven

Remember there's no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end. -- Scott Adams
