Many times, we think we have to do something big to change the world, but really, it starts with small steps to put a smile on someone’s face. Here are five small things you can do this week to change someone’s outlook.
Monday: leave a treat in the mailbox for the postman/woman. We have had so much snow lately, and they have delivered the mail faithfully every single day! Brighten their day and let then know how much you are thankful for them.
Tuesday: Write a letter to a family member, friend or colleague letting them know how wonderful they are. I recently got a letter in the mail “just because” from my grandmother-in-law. This made me feel so special and makes me want to do this for someone else!
Wednesday: Have your family round up the carts in the grocery store parking lot.
Thursday: Hold the door open for people with a smile on your face.
Friday: Hand out hand warmers to homeless you see on the streets as you drive around. Remember not every one makes it to a shelter for the night, and it is cold outside. It is something small, but it is something.
Please post any other ideas that you may have for making a difference in the world. Its starts with the small, and snowballs into something big!
