In my last post I mentioned to you about the new journal I am started at the New Year regarding completing “One Good Deed A Day”. I will be making a status update daily on my Facebook page (so don’t forget to click the link to your right to follow me on FB) with reflection about the deed from the day before and the deed I will be completing that day. On the blog I will be updating once a week instead. Every Sunday for the deeds for Sunday through Saturday in case any of you want to follow along. The journal can also be found at Barnes and Noble if anyone wants to grab one on their own and follow along or do it themselves.
Today will be the first post describing the deeds I will complete today. Although I would like to pick a deed everyday, to be successful at this, I know myself and I need to be a little more prepared for some of the deeds in the book to make sure I follow through. Not only that I wanted you to be able to follow along if you choose as well. I feel like some sense of excitement can be lost through this process or pre-picking, but I want to try and do a new good deed every day and this way will help me, at least for now. If later on I decide to just pick a random one each day I will start to update on here daily instead of weekly.
so DUN DUN DUN….. the deeds for the week:
Since the New Year starts on Wednesday I will only be listing Wed-Sat this week.
1/1/14: SMILE AT A STRANGER
1/2/14: BECOME AN ORGAN DONOR
1/3/14: ADD MONEY TO AN EXPIRED METER
1/4/14: TALK ABOUT WHAT YOU’RE GRATEFUL FOR
“Each one of these seemingly simple measures has the power to set off a chain reaction of kindness. Good deeds never go unnoticed. In fact, they tend to have a ripple effect. Your kind smile can compel someone to hold the door for a stranger, motivating that stranger to reach out to an old friend, who decides to donate much needed funds to a charitable cause.”
I hope you start a long with me. It’ll be interesting how these will change our lives over the next year. Comment below if you are going to follow along with me. Would love to stay updated with you. And don’t forget to follow along daily through Facebook.
