Kindness Challenge: Follow-up

Be Kind

Just do it. Free and easy.

Just so you know, I don’t just challenge you guys to do things and not do them myself.  You can find the original challenge here.  Here’s how I fared in the kindness challenge:

  • Monday: I was leaving the bank and noticed that a car in the parking lot had the interior light turned on, so I went back in and asked around to find the driver and let them know.  I also stopped to pick up a nail in a parking lot, hopefully saving someone a flat tire (this is indirect kindness, but I’m still gonna count it).
  • Tuesday: Posted the following note on a random car windshield

  • Wednesday: Forgot to make a conscious effort on Wednesday.  I did offer to spot a stranger at the gym when he was lifting some weight that was pretty heavy for him.  He accepted thankfully, so maybe that counts?
  • Thursday: Forgot to make a conscious effort again, dang it.  But I did go play disc golf with a buddy, and we let a stranger play the round with us because he was throwing by himself.  Maybe that counts?
  • Friday: Went out to dinner with some friends and put this on a random car in the parking lot.

You are enough, just as you are.

  • Saturday: Forgot again.  Dang it.
  • Sunday: Put this on a random car:

The quote is from Dr. Seuss, by the way

Well that wraps up the week.  I’d say I did fair, not great.  I consciously made an effort on 4/7 days, and maybe got an extra half day of credit out of pure luck.  Also, I was sort of a one trick pony with the signs on the car windshields, but it was just the easiest way for me to remember.  But I still tried to put some smiles on some strangers’ faces and that’s all that counts.  I am only asking for progress, not perfection.

Did you complete the challenge?  Even if you didn’t, share something nice you’ve done for a stranger recently!

    I stopped my bike ride to pick up long, sharp, wicked-looking screws in the street. ‘Must have fallen off a service vehicle of some kind.
