Random Acts of Kindness

I have the BEST women in the world on my site. THE BEST! One of them shared a story today that I just had to blog about because it really defines what this time of year is all about.

Emily, you have just been such a wonderful addition to our PNP family. From kicking butt in Chalene Extreme, and outstanding team member in challeges, and now just sharing goodwill…well, I think I can speak for all of us and say it's wonderful having you a part of our virtual life. 🙂

Last night, my bookclub and I did something really special. We rented a limo (for fun!) and went around town and did random acts of kindness. One was inspired by a story that just went national today…I live in Grand Rapids where this story originated.

We ended up heading to Walmart and we bought a pile of gift cards and lotto tickets and split up and started passing them around the store. I also put some post-its up in the bathrooms since I'm a huge fan ofoperationbeautiful.com and post-it this town up whenever I can!! We then took the last bit of cash we had ($100)) and went to the layaway department and found an account with 5 toys on it totaling $90 and we paid it off. I took the last $10 and handed it to a stranger in the store on our way out.

Can I just say….this is therapy at it's finest. If you are feeling down in the dumps, all you have to do is smile…or do something kind for someone else and it will brighten your day.  I know, because I had a really bad day yesterday, and just an overall crummy week.  I went home last night with such a full heart.  I'm still ridin' that wave right now!!

Anyway, I just wanted to share that with my team today 🙂

    OMG, I love this. I love the sticky note idea. I’ve paid people’s coffee before in line at a 7-11 and I’ve done people’s tolls. It’s really fun. Great job Emily.

    Hi, I'm Corinne

    I lost 100 pounds and get what it is like to be overweight and feel defeated. I did a complete mental and physical transformation and now I teach women how to do the EXACT same thing. You can get started today with the free course.
