Today is the final day. Day 30! Which means tomorrow is my 30th birthday. I have so enjoyed the past thirty days- coming up with the ideas, finding the perfect images and of course completing the tasks. I hope even if you weren't following along completely, you were inspired to show a bit more kindness to those around you.
Many times while dining out Ryan and I have discussed how fun it would be to choose someone in the restaurant and anonymously pay for their meal. But that's where it's ended. Just us talking about how "someday, when we have more money..." I can imagine how happy + grateful we would be if someone showed such an act of kindness to us. I decided to end the Thirty Days of Kindness with this gesture because it's something I've always wanted to do. I don't know why it's taken me thirty years to figure out that doing the things you talk about, dream of or aspire to only requires one step: doing it. It's simple.
So tomorrow, on my 30th birthday Ryan and I are going to sit down at a restaurant. We're going to laugh and talk about the gifts we need to wrap + the fudge we need to deliver. We're probably going to discuss the advent activities we've missed this week due to Oliver's sickness and decide where we can fit them in. And then, we're going to look around to the other people sitting in the booths and tables. We're going to choose someone from the crowd and anonymously pay for their meal. And I bet when we're leaving we'll wonder what in the world took us so long.
Please come back here tomorrow for a special birthday treat from me to you.
You won't want to miss it.
