Do something nice for someone today!
Here are a few ideas:
- Drop a quarter into a nearly expired parking meter
- Hold the door open
- Pay for the coffee of the person behind you in line
- If you see someone who looks lost, ask if they need directions
- Compliment someone. If you genuinely love their coat, then tell them so!
When I was a kid, my Grandpa frequently visited the same coffee shop every morning. Often the same lady would pour his coffee. One day she mentioned she really needed go pick up her glasses, but by the time she finished working, they were always closed. He finished his coffee, and then went out and picked them up for her.
I met her the next time he brought me along, and she told me how my Grandpa went out of his way to do her that favor. What I saw in her eyes as she looked at him and told the story, was the type of person I wanted to be when I grew up.
Who do you want to be when you grow up?
