BBL 2013-2014 | Perform a Random Act of Kindness
#1 PERFORM A RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS
Why did I include this on my Bucket List?
I'm a pretty big believer in karma. I also just have a big heart and like to do nice things for people. So I thought putting some good into the world in honor of my 40th birthday sounded like a good idea.
Was the experience what I had hoped it would be?
It was fun deciding what to do as my random act of kindness, and I enjoyed imagining the surprise and joy of whoever finds it.
Since reading is one of my favorite past times and the library one of my favorite places, I decided to leave an envelope in one of my all time favorite books. I explained that it was my 40th birthday and as one of the items on my bucket list I was doing a random act of kindness. I added that I picked that particular book because it is one of my favorites and I said that I hope the person reading it enjoyed it as much as I did. I asked the person to spend the money on something they enjoy, then I signed and dated the note and added it to the envelope along with $40.
I'm sure I will be checking the book during future trips to the library and will be excited as soon as I see that someone has found it!
