Go Be Sunshine

Do you ever have those terrible, horrible, no good, very bad days? Just plain yucky. All of a sudden when you feel like you've hit rock bottom, someone does something ridiculously nice for you for no apparent reason or motivation. Just sweet and simple niceness.

{ What a day changer! }

Recently, one of my many amazing co-workers knew I was having a stressful time and simply left a note and a coffee on my desk. It may have seemed small to them, but it was so thoughtful and unexpected. In fact, I was so moved that I almost cried. She made my day.

I can't help but be inspired by this and many other sweet random acts of kindness. Just knowing how the little things made me smile, I want to be the person to add sunshine to someone's day... even if I don't know them.

{ Sunshine Challenge }

Find one way today to make a difference...

+ pay for Starbucks of the person behind you in the drive-thru
+ send someone a hand written thank you
+ put some coins in someone else’s parking meter
+ walk your friend’s dog
+ give a compliment about your waiter
+ send someone a small gift anonymously
+ treat a friend to the movies for no reason
+ leave a huge tip to someone when they least expect it
+ hold the elevator door for someone
+ pick up litter on the sidewalk
+ smile... a lot

Go be someone's sunshine today... and I promise it will make you smile!
