I had an awesome opportunity unfold right in front of me and I took immediate advantage.
I was in a smallish country town about an hour from my city. I had been in a restaurant and when I came out there was a little old lady, probably 80 years old, trying to cross the street. We were in the middle of the block and there was traffic going in both directions, but slowly. However, nobody was stopping.
This hunched over little lady was too old to walk all the way to the end of the block to find a crosswalk (that didn’t exist anyway, this was a country town).
I asked her if I could help and she took my arm. I stopped traffic by holding up my hand with the command and we marched across the street to her car. I waited until she got in her car, wished her a good day and went on with mine.
I felt great for the rest of the day! 3 months ago
Have to come up with ideas. Though you would think that would come naturally. 3 months ago
I haven’t updated this goal in a long time, but must say that the practice of “committing random acts of kindness” has become ingrained into my personality.
Example: yesterday while in Walmart, an elderly gentleman was attempting to pull off his sweat-shirt when his wallet and 3 set of keys fell out. I immediately bent over and picked it all up, handing him everything. He thanked me graciously.
On the way out of the store, my sunglasses fell out of my pocket in the parking lot. I did not notice. A man I had just walked past shouted to me that I dropped my sunglasses.

I need to look into ideas for this. I’ve done internet secret santa which was nice, and I post on advice/help forums a lot. 7 months ago
Each day do something kind for another person. Will post daily! 14 months ago
I put this on my list as a reminder for myself to always look for ways to make random people smile. But as time has gone by, I’ve realized that this is a basic element of my personality. I do it naturally, no reminder needed. So I’m moving this to my done list. Yay for Raoks!!!! 15 months ago

I am taking this off my list because this is an on-going activity, part of how I choose to live my life. Will it ever get done? :-) 20 months ago
