A Creative Dream

A little blog about the life of a somewhat lost dreamer....looking for my grace in this crazy world.

Today...

Today's idea...

12.1.2016 - Tell someone who has made a positive difference in your life what they did, and how you feel about it.

12.2.2016 -  Write 5 notes with encouraging words and scatter them in random places for strangers to find.

12.3.2016 -  Say thank you to someone today, and mean it.

12.4.2016 -  See a small child being particularly well behaved today?  Tell them, and their parents.

12.5.2016 -  Buy someone a cup of coffee... like maybe the person ringing the bell in front of the red kettles.

12.6.2016 -  Tape enough money to a soda machine to allow someone to buy one.

12.7.2016 - Recognize a positive quality in someone, and tell them about it.


12.8.2016 - Call your mother.  (Your father, brother, sister, aunt, uncle, fried you haven’t seen in forever… you get the idea.)

12.9.2016 -  Write an encouraging statement on post it notes, and put them on bathroom mirrors while you’re out shopping for the season.

12.10.2016 – Leave some homemade cookies in the mailbox for the postman…and maybe a couple of hand warmers.

12.11.16 -  Give a treat to the school crossing guard…and maybe a few hand warmers too!

12.12.2016 – Give a co-worker a sincere compliment.

12.13.2016 – Thank a cashier, they get to deal with a lot of stress this time of the year.

12.14.2016 – Visit a nursing home, spend some time with a resident who has no family.


12.15.2016 -  Volunteer at your local food bank, or go there to make a donation (see the good that they do).

12.16.2016 -  Check with your local Habitat for Humanity, see if you can fulfill a need.

12.17.2016 – Look into the intimate partner violence shelter in your area, see if you can lend a hand.

12.18.2016 – Volunteer at your local animal shelter, or donate a few fleece blankets or pet food.

12.19.2016 – Take a tray of cookies to your neighbor, or maybe a couple of neighbors.

12.20.2016 – Rake leaves or shovel the sidewalk, or offer to run and errand for an elderly neighbor.

12.21.2016 – Bake cookies again, and go visit the local fire station with them.

Say hello and give a big smile to every single person you cross paths with today.

Wrap a Christmas gift for an orphan. Doesn't matter whether you make the gift, buy it or regift something.

P.S. Just reading your list of ideas makes me feel warm inside and a bit kinder ;-)
