Tip # 27 – -28 Days of Random Acts of Kindness

Tip # 27 – Volunteer your time and experience

GirlsOnTheRun_Color

A local Girls on the Run chapter has been formed in my area.  I so want to be involved with this group because it is all about empowering young girls and building confidence.  Alas – my time needs to be dedicated to my sons right now.  But – I am able to offer my services and experience by helping with their bookkeeping needs.  I’m excited to still be a part of the group and offer my support in the capacity that I am able.

Tip # 26 – 28 Days of Random Acts of Kindness

Tip # 26 – Be old-fashioned

Hold-Door1

Maybe we should go back to the old days – – opening doors for others, helping people carry heavy loads, offering a seat to someone on the bus…..

Tip # 25 – Invite someone who might been feeling alone over for dinner

Dinner-party-001

I remember when my husband was in the US Navy and would be gone for months on deployment, I hated eating dinner by myself.  I simply loved it when someone would invite me and later my kids to join them for dinner.

Tip # 24 – Send a postcard or Holiday card to the troops

OperationHolidayCard

They are protecting us and serving our country – they should be remembered and remembered often.  Why not drop them a line from time to time?

The Red Cross sponsors this program – Holiday Mail  for Heroes.

Tip #23 – Go one step further

Friends enjoy a hot cup of coffee in the kitchen

Instead of just saying “let’s get together some time” – go one step further and say “let’s get together for coffee next week, how about Wednesday 10am?”  Wednesday at 10am might not work, but the odds of trying to find a time that will work and actually getting together for coffee are better than just an open-ended invitation.

Tip # 22 – 28 Days of Random Acts of Kindness

Tip # 22 – Take criticism with your big girl panties on. 

constructive-criticism

Sometimes we just need to hear it.  And delivering it can be just as stressful for the person giving any criticism.  Buck up, listen to what you are being told, take it with a grain of salt or take it to heart…just don’t beat up the messenger when delivering some words of advice.
