“Love withers with predictability; its very essence is surprise and amazement. To make love a prisoner of the mundane is to take its passion and lose it forever.” –Leo Buscaglia
The theme for this week is the classic concept summarized in the phrase a “random act of kindness.” In its randomness, these actions come as surprises to the recipients. Look for several you can perform spontaneously without a lot of effort and do them! Notice that opportunities to do these kinds of things take place any time we encounter another person. Going out of your way to be nice fulfills this concept perfectly.
Additionally and to really get the most out of this week’s theme, decide on at least one kind action of surprise that involves you having to plan it in advance. For this one, choose someone you think would really benefit from being the recipient of a positive surprise and provide it. Enlist others in support of this if you want to increase the scope of the kindness.
