Yes, it is National Goof Off Day!!! And don’t we all need a little more of that in our lives!! In a time where we spend more time looking down, then actually enjoying the world around us, we should stop and enjoy. Maybe goofing off can just mean being a little lighter, laughing a little more. Whatever it means to you, just give yourself that opportunity today. Have a little fun, smile a little more, do something for you!!! I’m headed that way now….
Right now, with so much uneasiness going on, this day has come at the perfect time. Today is Random Acts of Kindness Day, and in fact, there is an entire organization dedicated to random acts of kindness, and you can get involved.
So, what does it mean to be kind to someone? It can really come in so many forms, here are a few examples: opening a door, saying thank you, bringing a sick person soup, giving someone a hug who needs it, buying someone lunch, donating blood, giving someone your full attention, sending someone a message you don’t talk to often or even smiling at someone. You can find even more here. Kindness has so many shapes and forms, and we too often forget this. So today, I highly encourage you to try one, two or even more of these today, and see how it makes you feel. Spread the joy, we will all be happier for it.
