It's Been Settled

A strange phenomenon has occured.
One I could never have predicted.
It actually shocks me.

After reading all of your comments
about my Random Acts of Kindness project,
I have decided to continue ahead with it,
even though, the majority of you
said you really wouldn't care for an
anonymous note.

Here is my reasoning:

It actually made me sad
to read most of your comments.
Why?
I mean no personal offense by my opinion.
It's just that
I want to give people a joyful moment.
I want to let people know that
SOMEONE cares.
That someone appreciates them.
I do NOT want thanks.
I am not doing it for me.
I am doing it for them.

There is so much negativity in this world.
I can't change the world.
But I can change a moment.

So, may I suggest this:
If you ever get a RAK that is anonymous,
look at it this way...

It's from nobody and yet it's from everyone.

If I get questioned by anyone again,
I will tell them that.
And gently suggest they just pass it on.

Together we can make a difference.

I LOVE,LOVE to do anonymous acts of kindness.Love that most people never figure I did it. I have never done just a letter. I do believe you have to go with your feelings and do what feels right.
Hugs sweetie

I love what you are doing Jill. Good job. I wanted to get something going where everyone does one nice thing... It had to be simple, easy, convenient. For example, everytime I buy groceries, I spend $5 extra dollars on canned goods or paper items for a food pantry. All year long. It's easy, it's convenient because I go to the grocery store anyway, and I usually have the extra $5.00 (I posted about it a few posts back) I think bravo for doing nice. We all need to spread the word. Maybe it'll catch on. We have too much meanness going on as it is....

I love that you've decided to continue and, yes, that answer is perfect if you're asked again.

You know what? You're probably one of few who would even bother to do random acts of kindness. Not that we all don't do our share but I dont think we prepare and plan for it. Good for you Jill.

Jeanne said...

Okay... my comment didn't show up. Will try again.
Jill, your kindness will be rewarded.

Donna said...

Well, you know What?? You just keep doing it the way YOU want! It's about how YOU feel!
I think it's FUN! Especially when you go through a drive-thru and pay for the person in the car behind yours...What fun and an adventure trying to get out of the parking lot before they try to catch you!!Hahaaaa
