Today marks the first day of my goal to complete one Random Act of Kindness (RAOK) a day for a whole year - 365 days to change the world :) To make it slightly more difficult I want to do a different RAOK every day and to do something I wouldn't ordinarily do (so holding a door open or thanking someone for a service can't count!). I want to really challenge myself and I'm actually really excited to get started!

I decided that my first RAOK was to send a letter of gratitude to the staff at my local grocery store. A few days ago I suddenly became very unwell whilst shopping and the staff went above and beyond to help me and make sure I got home safely. Whilst I of course thanked them at the time, I want their manager to know and recognise how wonderful they are and to give them the commendation they deserve. So I've written it on a cute notecard and its odd in the post tomorrow. I hope they get to read it, or at least to hear that they are appreciated :)

    "No kind action ever stops with itself. One kind action leads to another. Good example is followed. A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves" - Amelia Earhart
