Put Some Good Back Into The World
Today is my birthday. I'm 29. And I feel as though I'm right where I'm meant to be in life... right where I need to be in life... and so many things have fallen into place for me.
I've found my happy. I'm in a good place. And it feels good. Very good.
All this week as I thought about what I was going to do to celebrate my birthday, I thought of the usual: dinner, drinks, and dancing with friends. That's always fun. And a great way to celebrate too.
But I wanted to do more. And when I thought of what I really wanted, it was to put some more good back into the world. Even if it were a small act of kindness.
So I've been working on doing small, kind things all week -- surprising my co-worker with Starbucks in the morning, helping my god-sister get a summer internship, doing a favor for my sister, connecting readers who've emailed me about one thing or another with resources that I know are helpful for them, connecting a friend of a friend of a friend with a recruiter because that friend of a friend of a friend wants a job at the recruiter's company.
With all the crazy, awful, and downright unbelievable things happening in the world right now, I wanted to direct my energies towards putting some good back into the world.
It felt good. Really good.
This weekend I'm challenging each of you to put some good back into the world by doing one act of kindness. It doesn't have to be anything major, but it'll make a difference. Trust me on this.
Leave a comment here or send me an email about your act of kindness and I'll give you a shout out on the Mommy Delicious Facebook Page.
Are you in?
