Welcome to day five of the challenge!
The best way to master random acts of kindness? Practice! The more you practice the more creative you will become!
In a recent post (click here) I shared a few ways for you to get started on your own practice. Have you tried anything off the list? Remember,
doing something in this challenge doesn’t have to be scary or costly. Just offering a smile to a stranger can change their entire day!
Let’s take a look at more ways you can reach out and offer kindness:
All of these are super-easy, low-effort and free ways to brighten someones day. You can do it!
See you tomorrow as we look at how kindness can impact the world.
Yesterday I asked you to think of Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) that you may have done or examples of kindness others have done for you. It's okay if you couldn't think of any or if performing random acts of kindness is a new process for you. Coming up with ideas can be tough, so today I thought I would share some ideas to get your started. Some of these activities cost nothing and take only a moment of your time. Others will be more in-depth and you may spend as much or as little as you like. Choose whatever fits your comfort level and the occasion.
Enjoy these examples of random acts of kindness and let them inspire you!
Hopefully, this quick list will inspire you to begin sharing random acts of kindness with those around you. Pick one from the list or come up with an idea of your own, then just do it. See how you feel. Chances are you will be ready to do another one tomorrow and the day after.
See you back here tomorrow as we discuss what “kindness” really means.

How are you? Been really busy around Serenity lately!
Many new people are visiting both in person and on line. Yeah! And I'm working on new classes, meditations and another book will be out soon!
Next month is the Reiki students retreat in New Mexico, USA and as we iron out the last minute details, I'm already meeting with Lady Roxanna for a summer 2019 retreat. That retreat will be open to the public and will be based on Empaths and the amazing journey they are currently facing. If you want info on this event, be sure and join the Serenity mailing list.
I'm off to another meeting now, but I wanted to say thanks for stopping by and being a part of the Serenity family!
Can you believe we have come to the end of our mini-challenge? I hope you have found this information useful and thought provoking. We have covered quite a bit of information over the last few days. You’ve learned why acknowledging, embracing and expressing gratitude is so important. You’ve also learned a few specific ways to begin a practice of gratitude in your own life. I’d like to expand on that as we end our challenge to provide you with a more in-depth list of helpful tips to tap into the power of being grateful. You can use these ideas as you move forward in creating your own routine.
Take a Gratitude Walk
Going for a walk is a great way to relieve stress and gain perspective. It offers a number of advantages. You leave your regular environment, get out in the fresh air and move away from distractions. It’s a form of physical exercise that comes with health benefits of its own, plus walking can even be considered a form of meditation and it’s a fabulous way to focus on gratitude. During this particular walk, pay special attention to the things you encounter along the way. Chances are, you’ll discover plenty to be thankful for during your walk.
Make a Gratitude Collage
A fun way to acknowledge your gratefulness in a visual way is to create a gratitude collage. This process works in a similar way as a vision board. You can cut out pictures from a magazine or add personal photos. Your collage can be laid out on a poster board or printer paper. You can even keep your board electronically on Pinterest or some other app. The point is to collect images that move you to consider your good fortune. It’s a good idea to put your board in a place where you can see daily or add a picture of it to your phone pictures to visit in stressful times.
Hold a Friendsgiving
Friendsgiving is like Thanksgiving, only with friends and chosen family instead of biological family. This special occasion is often held in place of traditional Thanksgiving for those who don’t have family physically nearby or who aren’t emotionally close with their relatives. It can take place near the actual holiday or on any day you choose. A gratitude party or get-together can remind you of the people who are most important in your life and enhance existing bonds.
Look for Gratitude in Challenges
We all know how easy it is to focus on the bad stuff. Sometimes we get stuck in the negative and allow it to weigh us down and it seems thats all we can think about. That’s natural, but you can interrupt that cycle by consciously working to find the gratitude in life’s challenges. Look for the lessons in each challenge. Be sure to write them down in your gratitude journal or make a note of them in some formalized way so that you can look back and remember the good that came from the adversity.
One of the best ways to gain perspective and move into a state of gratitude is to help others in need. This can be through a formal volunteer effort with a philanthropic organization or it can simply be something like helping a neighbor. No matter what the effort, you’ll reap the rewards when you pitch in to give to support others. Try to do something to help someone else at least once a week, and you’re sure to experience a boost in gratitude.
Give these ideas a try. Research or brainstorm some additional ones on your own. Just get started so you can see just what a difference embracing a mindset of gratitude can have on your entire life.
Now head on over to the FB group and lets discuss further.
The practice of forgiveness is our most important contribution to the healing of the world.
