Random acts of kindness

I have been feeling a little under the weather lately, feeling down on myself and letting stress get the best of me. I took some time off blogs to see if that would help me get out of my rut, but so far, it hasn't worked. The scale told me stress was really affecting me, so my husband is on a mission to help me gain the weight back. Perhaps I'll get some hate mail for complaining, but I can tell you that being underweight is just as serious as it is being overweight, especially when either is a result of stress. I have been trying to relax, meditate and let things roll right off me, but so far, the only thing I have managed has been procrastination.

Bright colors help light up my day
But there has been a bright spot in all of this! The other day, upon returning to my car, I found a note taped to my windshield that said "You are special." I looked around and none of the other cars had one, and there was no one around. This got me thinking about how powerful random acts of kindness are. If a note from a stranger could make a difference for me, I wonder how many lives I can change doing something that takes less than a minute of my time on a weekly or even daily basis. A hug, a compliment, a note, and even a smile can make someone's day. With you as my witness, I hereto commit to random acts of kindness.

So tell me, have you ever experienced a random act of kindness? Any and all ideas encouraged!
