Surprise Someone

The theme for this week is the classic concept summarized in the phrase “a random act of kindness.” In their randomness, these actions come as surprises to the recipients.

Look for those you can perform spontaneously without a lot of effort (and do some, thus providing you with a surprise of your own!). And identify at least one that involves you having to plan your action in advance. 

For the planned act of kindness, 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.

For inspiration, take some time to think about all the things that essential workers and public employees do to make our lives easier. Perhaps your surprise will be for one of them.
