Spreading Kindness During the Holidays is Spreading

Have you heard the news? Random Acts of Kindness are popping up everywhere!

In just the first five days of December, I've heard of many stories of people showing kindness and it's quite inspiring.  Let's take a look.

Doesn't that excite and inspire you? The inspiration is just beginning.

Over at Cheaper Than Therapy, another ChicagoNow blog, she's teaching her kids about spreading kindness through their Advent Calendars.  Her 11-year-old made five calendars, following her instructions, and then she wrote in acts of kindness on all the calendars for each day, December 1st through December 25th. Her "rule" is that each child must complete his or her act of kindness by the end of the day. I love it.

Speaking of Advent Calendars, there's an Advent Calendar website, called The Acts of Kindness Advent Calendar, appropriately enough, where you can sign up for and each day until Christmas you'll be emailed an act of kindness to perform that day. They'd also like you to report back to the site that you completed your act of kindness so they can tally up all the acts this month. I signed up for the email a couple of days ago and, although I'm not necessarily performing each act each day (because I've also got a list of my own), I'm saving the ideas for later use.

You must be excited to spread kindness now.

Keep spreading kindness and sharing your stories. Are you receiving any Random Acts of Kindness? I'd love to hear about those too.

Remember, what we put out into the Universe will also come back to us. Maybe not immediately, but when you need it and are least expecting it, the Universe will respond.

    A native of Chicago's Northwest Suburbs and resident of the North Shore, Little Merry Sunshine comes by her name honestly. The story goes that as a child, she was always so happy that she even slept with a smile on her face. Her mom nicknamed her Little Merry Sunshine. It stuck, along with her insatiable desire to focus on the good in the world and to leave it a little better than she found it. She does this by sharing her passions and dreams, what inspires her, and maybe you too, and furthering the discussion about how we can listen to our better angels. You can reach her at LittleMerrySunshineCN[at]WowWay[dot]com.
