November is a month that reminds us to give thanks for all the blessings we have. Sometimes it’s easy to feel down about the things we don’t have or the things in life that we don’t think are going our way. I’ve found that when I feel this way, it’s best to turn the focus away from myself and think about someone else. So, in the spirit of building a more grateful heart this month I’m going to perform 22 Random Acts of Kindness, one for each day leading up to and including Thanksgiving. They will be simple things that I hope will make someone else smile. If I don’t post a RAK each day, I will share a few at a time. This was inspired by my friend Kate, who did this for her birthday. I wrote about her RAKs here. Will you join me in showing thanks by participating in random acts of kindness? Share in the comments what you do for your random acts of kindness.

For my first RAK, I carved out a chunk of time and called an out-of-state friend who is going through something very difficult. We visited for a while and I ended by reminding my friend that he is loved. It’s always best to say that love stuff out loud. But only when it’s true.
