How about National Be Kind Day?  Let’s start it.  Who’s in?  Today, the 26th day of July.  Let’s all do something kind.  Even if its just ONE kind deed.  Kindness doesn’t cost a cent and is worth it’s weight in gold.  Sprinkle that shit everywhere you go.  Open a door for someone.  Smile at a stranger (just not a creepy one).  Text a homie.  Call your grandma and say Hi!  It takes a couple of second out of your day.  Do good shit!  And guess what, not only will good shit come back to you, you will feel pretty damn good too!

Remember a {weekend notes} where I talked about all the “Good Shit” that happened that weekend?  More “Good Shit” happened last weekend.  Right as our spontaneous road trip started, a black cat ran across the road, right in front of us.  I’m not going to lie….I’m  superstitious.  Please tell me I’m not the only one?  It totally freaked me out.  How can you start a trip like that?  You know what it means when a black cat runs across the street in front of you?  It means you should turn around and go back.  Otherwise, bad luck.

Instead of turning around, I decided…let’s just do “Good Shit” and we’ll be fine.  So, that’s what we did.  I sprinkled “Good Shit” every place I went.  And guess what?  Not a single thing went wrong, bad…nothing.  No bad luck.  What I’m saying here friends, just do “Good Shit!”

Bay and I chatted about this on our way to summer camp this morning.  About all the super easy things you can do.  She decided that she’d pay lots of complements to other kids + counselors and smile at others.  Smiles are contagious.  Yet so simple!  And if my 10-year-old can do it..so can you!!!

In case that’s not enough, here are 100 Random Acts of Kindness!!

Practice a random act of kindness today, you’ll find that it not only makes someones day, it also makes yours pretty good too!  Maybe that person will even pass it on.  Just think if everyone did one act of kindness today.  Or what if we ALL did one act of kindness every single day.

We could shake the world!!!
