'Tis the Season, Part 3

     How did you do last week, saying all those kind, positive things?  It changes your outlook a little bit, doesn't it?

     Good for you.  You're helping to change the tone of the world right now, even in your corner of it.

     For this week, let's up the game a little bit and add to our kind thoughts and positive words this -- kind deeds.  This may be more of a challenge, given the busyness of the season, but I have confidence in you.  Here are a few ideas, but again, feel free to come up with some of your own:
  • Pay for the coffee for the person behind you in line.
  • Leave a thank-you note or send an email for someone you don't normally talk to -- the mail deliverer, your favorite columnist, the person who does such a nice job making your life easier or more beautiful.
  • Give a child a hug (first getting the parent's permission is a good idea).
  • Hug your pet.
  • Hug yourself.
  • Trade chores with your significant other if it helps them relax.
  • Allow yourself a little time to put your feet up and relax.
  • Leave an anonymous gift for someone who helps you at work or home.
  • Smile at strangers.
  • Smile at yourself.
  • Laugh with others.
  • Watch a funny, uplifting movie with your family or friends.
     We'll change this world yet, one kind deed at a time.
