Ok so this IS a double up but as it fits into more than one goal I am going to count it ;) 1 month ago
I have been making sure the dishes are done and hot spots are tidied up even though I am at a friends place. I have plenty of time and nothing much to do. She has things that need to be done but little time. As a thank you for letting me stay I have been doing little things around the house that make a HUGE difference. Putting all the recycling in the recycling bin, putting a bag in the bin (this is one of Rach’s pet hates and it took me two mins!) washing clothes, emptying the cat litter tray, cleaning the catfood bowls and the icky space under it, cooking dinner etc. I have been doing these jobs in between doing fun things for myself such as visiting friends, watching DVD’s and of course the internet LOL. It makes me feel good and it will help her out a lot!

ha ha a VERY
random one 2 months ago
I had an email through a dating website that I am on from a guy in Ausralia. He is taking part in a photo/video clip scavenger hunt and needed some help with one of the NZ ones. He needs a woman in NZ to squash an apple or a potato on a NZ Newspaper with a pair of heels on. I then have to send him a series of photos or a video clip. I thought why not. Not only do I get to do something odd that I ahve never done before, he is up for some fantastic prizes. I got talking to him and one of his friends here in NZ and I really hit it off with the friend. Yay!

Organised games for a kid’s party 9 months ago
My flatmate isn’t into organising games etc so for her daughter’s 7th bday today I organised some games for them to play. It was fun and they enjoyed it. I didn’t have to but it made some little kids happy. I then supervised them in the pool a couple of times. Small things for me but big things for the kids!

My ex boyf has been feeling a little down lately 9 months ago
He loves Cherry Ripes but we cant get them very easily in NZ. My mum lives in Australia so I have asked her to post me some over for him to cheer him up. They are on there way now. YAY I know that he will REALLY appreciate this. So while I set mum back a few $ I know that Sam will be VERY grateful.

I bumped into an old woman in town on Monday 9 months ago
My ex boyfriend Sam used to work with her Grandson Tim. This women, Helen is soooo old. I have met her several times through Tim but really got to know her when I started working at a souviner store in town. Helen has a lot of family overseas so for each of their birthdays she would buy them a present from my store. She is a lovely old thing and I miss her now that i no longer work there. SO I was planning on taking her out for a coffee and a chat as she doesn’t get to town much. Hoever I forgot to get her phone number. I went up to her on Mon in town, gave her a HUGE hug and a kiss and asked her out for coffee (or tea in my case, see completed goal re coffee!). She was sooooo excited to see me and she is really looking forward to meeting up. Yay. It has been raining this week so it will have to be next week but such a simple thing and it made BOTH of our days.
Ok I do things without realising but I have decided to take notice. 9 months ago
Last night I went to a dance party. I made an effort whilst waiting at the bar for water to compliment people. I got two weird looks and about 20 gorgeous smiles! I told 4 people that I loved their dance styles, I sincerly thanked the girls behind the bar for serving me water (normally it costs but they did it for free for me). When I was going home I looked for two guys that were going back to the same address as me but they were gone. When we were driving down the road I saw them so I got the driver to do a lap around the block and I went back to see if they wanted a ride home (they didn’t but i am glad I asked).
These were all things that I do without thinking. I am sure that if I thought about it I could do a LOT more. Need to start actively working on this goal.

While I still do things I just haven’t noticed 9 months ago
Yesterday I bought my flatmates icecream (they are 6,9 & 14) hmmm I am sure that there was a lot more… I hope ?
Hmmm 1 year ago
Ok I have decided to write even little things. I guess any good in this world helps lift us. I looked after my brother this morning and let Mum sleep in for an hour and a half. I commented on a few postings and gave advice ( I got a thank you back from 2 people saying that it had helped them…) and I still say hello and give a big smile to everyone I see, even when I do get some funny looks lol. Although it is only 9.45am I still haven’t left the house yet. My goal today is to do 10 nice things for randoms… I will do it and let you’ll know later =)
I do things for other people all the time. 1 year ago
Does holding a door open for another person count? Or do these have to be bigger things? Hmmm maybe if I list the little things it will make me aware of the good that i do in this world and therefore how I am an inpact in changing the world to be a better place.

Awesome – we need more people in the world like you! Small gestures like holding doors open totally count :)

true, i always notice when random people hold doors open for me, and in return they get a smile. small gestures are the best as thats whn people realy feel cared about! it shouldnt build up to one big gesture.
cheers for acts of kindness! 5 years ago
