Little Acts of Kindness 2011

Friday, 14 January 2011 18:21

In July 2009, I started my 'little acts of kindness' blog.  It is one of the best things I have done.  It is really simple but powerful as well.

I can't believe it was that long ago.  On a beautiful Saturday morning I was out for my morning run and witnessed a little act of kindness.  It made me smile and made me want to perform my own little act of kindness.

A little while later I made a commitment to share my favourite act of kindness of the week.  And since then I have done so.

At the start I wondered whether I had over-committed myself.  Sometimes I feel like a boy scout on the look out to perform my good deed for the day.  But over time it has gotten easier and now I would feel really sad if I didn't share my favourite act of kindness for the week.

And you know what, over this time it has made me realise all the little acts of kindness that happen every day.  Sometimes, my heart feels like it will burst with happiness and it is often the really simple things.  Sometimes I have so many to choose from that I find it hard to pick one - what a lovely problem.

I have started many things over the last few years but this one has stuck.  And I plan to keep it up forever.

But don't take my word for it - give it a try.  I would love to hear about your favourite act of kindness.

So here is my Little Acts of Kindness blog for 2011.

Last week, Luke and I went for a visit to see a really special friend and her family. It was our first visit together and we were really excited. It is out past Gawler and for the first time I got lost. I missed my turnoff on the freeway and then had no idea what to do. I ended up in Gawler and didn't have my street directory. I stopped a lovely man who was walking down the street and he patiently explained to me how to get to my destination. It was quite complicated but he took the time to explain it to me in detail and we arrived safe and sound - albeit a little late. Thank you!

Today, Luke and I did a woodcarving lesson at the South Australian Woodcarving Academy in St Peters. We wanted to try something different for the school holidays and we were really excited. And it was really great - the lesson was for 1 1/2 hours and we could have kept going. Mike was lovely and gave us lots of instruction - I was a bit jealous as Luke got to do a snake. Mike was kind enough to give us the lesson for free. We will definitely be back. Luke is planning to carve a monster chess set and I want to do a tree. Thank you!

I was really scattered this week and yesterday I was being a real sook. Joylene and I email each other every day. I so love her emails and get so much out of them. It feels so good to have her to talk to, about anything. Thanks Joylene.

I had a phone call from a lovely customer. He had bought an Earth Goddess Green Quartz necklace for his partner for Valentine's Day - what a wonderful idea. And he rang to say the process of ordering to receiving the necklace was really good. How kind!

The other day I was doing my backbends and other exercises while Luke was playing one of his Wii games and he turned to me sand said 'mum I love how fit you are, I really appreciate how fit you are'. Thanks Luke.

Tonight, Luke was going to bed and he said "I so love my life" - it doesn't get any better than that. I so love my life.

Yesterday I got an email from Emily, a marketing guru in Sydney. It has been over a year since she had done the work for me and she was checking in to see how Earth Goddess was going and said that the blog was looking great. I like her style!

We had Luke's 7th birthday roller skating party on the weekend and it was so much fun. Everyone was so happy and there were so many shining eyes. It reminds me how many lovely friends we have. Everyone there helped to make it so special and joyful.

On Saturday, Luke had his best friend, Tyson, over for a play. They play so nicely together and take turns picking what they are going to do next. I put out 3 anzac biscuits and said Luke could have 1 because he had not had a very good lunch but Tyson broke one of the biscuits in half and gave it to Luke so they had 1 1/2 anzac biscuits each. Then they decided to play some Wii so Tyson grabbed a couple of cushions off the couch and put them on the floor right next to each other so they had something comfortable to sit on. So many acts of kindness, but I will stop there.

We went to church on Sunday for a mass for my grandfather who died recently just before his 98th birthday. It was a lovely thing to do and I really enjoyed all the singing, which is so good for the soul. My favourite part was when everyone turned to the people next to them and said 'Peace be with you'. We all had big smiles on our faces. Imagine if we did that throughout our day.

Last Wednesday I did an Attack Blitz class at the gym. Christine, the teacher of the class, welcomed me so kindly to the class. I really enjoyed it - it was mad, but lots of fun. I couldn't stop smiling.

I had a personal training session with Christine on Monday. It was absolutely crazy and I enjoyed every minute of it. Christine is hard core but she is also very supportive and encouraging - nice combination!

We are having such a nice time during these school holidays. Luke said he really wanted to chill out these school holidays and that is exactly what we have been doing. It has been so joyful, Luke has been making me laugh so much. I am enjoying every minute of it.

Luke has had a cold and hasn't gone to school for the last few days. We have been having a relaxing time at home and I feel very blessed that I can work my schedule around so that I can care for him when he is sick. Luke turned to me and said 'Mum, I love the way you look afer me and care for me'. Back in blissland. And then it makes me really appreciate even more that I can do so and on it goes.

I recently got an earthing mat and an earthing sheet for our bed. It makes me feel so happy that we are connected to the earth when we are sleeping and when I am lying on the couch with Luke having a kiss and cuddle. I am like a pig in mud!

Luke was looking for some batteries for his Wii remote and he found the exact batteries he needed. He turned to me and said "You know what, mum, when you are happy, everything goes your way".

My wonderful customer, Lisa, is like a ray of sunshine. She gives me such great feedback and best of all, she has started a run of Earth Goddess necklaces going to very special people - children, of course. It makes me so so happy, I could sing sing sing.

I was telling my mum how good she looks and Luke turned around and said "baba is the best looking baba ever". What magnificent feedback - it made us all smile, especially mum.

We have been having another great school holidays - lots of chillaxing! Luke was playing Wizard 101 between doing various free running moves around and on the furniture. At one stage he turned to me and said "It's scary being this good".

Luke and I have been a bit unwell with colds, so having lots of quiet time at home. Even though we weren't feeling totally well we still had a lovely time. At one point, out of the blue, Luke said "I love my life". How brilliant is that!

I did my first marathon yesterday - woo hoo! And my darling sister, Suzi, picked me up at 6.15 in the morning and was my support person. She drove to most of the water stations, fed me jelly babies and was there at the end. Thanks Sooz - what a wonderful sister!

I am totally amazed at how quickly my body recovered after the marathon. I went for a swim and sauna the day after but after that I was back to doing my normal classes. On Thursday, I felt back to normal. I did Christine's classes and she said I was on fire - and I was! It feels so good to feel so strong.

I have had a weird couple of days - credit card stuff where I had to go to the bank two times in one day and then still couldn't use my credit card and then the next day I got a flat tyre on the car. Thank you to the wonderful man who helped me change the tyre. Also, to the gorgeous lady in the suit who knew exactly what to do - very impressive. To do list - learn how to change a tyre.

The other day I was going into the city so I thought I would have a yummy curry at the wonderful Joy Discovery (what a great name!). I was a bit disappointed when I got there as they said that the curry had sold out. I had a long 'to do' list so started walking to the mall to get as many things done as I could. I was walking really fast but one of the lovely people at Joy Discovery had run after me as she had realised that there was one curry left. We got to chatting and she had been a national champion sprinter for India. What wonderful service! And it was a particularly delicious curry that day. Thanks for the great service Joy Discovery and for making such yummy and healthy food.

My sister, Helen, gave us some stunning flowers for Emma's 9th birthday yesterday. Luke thought the flowers were awesome and he went to work arranging them in the vase. We took the roses to the cemetery for Emma. Very nice.

Luke had to have his first blood test on Thursday. He really didn't want to do it and he was very upset. The nurse was really lovely and tried to calm him down. He was crying a lot but as we were walking out, he stopped to say, "Thank you, I guess."

Luke had school swimming last week. On the bus trip to the swimming pool, he said his best mate, Tyson, put his arm around him and said, "Luke, you're my best friend" and Luke said, "Your my best friend too." How divine!

Luke had a day off school today because he wasn't feeling very well. During the day, he said, 'Thanks mum for looking after me and always being there for me.' Whoa, puts it all in perspective.

I am quite excited because I am turning 44 on Monday - a master number. I was telling Luke and he said, "Mum, you don't seem that old. You look about 20". Now, don't get me wrong, I love being my age - but still very cute!

A while ago my mum started doing personal training with me. I was so excited. And she is great. She is one of my best clients. She is so determined and motivated, she never misses a week and she does all the exercises I have recommended for her to do during the week. At her last training session, mum said that she had lost 1/2 and inch all over body and 1 inch on her waist - how brilliant! What a dream client. And it feels so wonderful to think that I am helping my mum to keep fit and healthy and strong. Go mum!

This is my last entry for 2011. So many little acts of kindness it makes my heart sing. Yesterday I was busy doing my personal training. When I got home Herby had some roasted vegetables in the oven waiting for me as he knew I wouldn't have eaten anything. What a wonderful husband!
2012 is going to be an awesome year!
