Frustrated that you don’t have time to do something grand in an effort to give your life more meaning? Then stop it. Stop thinking that grand acts are what make life grand. It is what you do today that matters. It is what you do right after you read this that will make someone’s day.
Pick one of these ten simple acts of generosity and do it, today. In this effort you are giving something grand, as a smile or tear of gratitude for the receiver has no price and can ripple on forever outward. Maybe a life of big meaning is most easily realized with smaller thinking, with little acts of generosity performed this moment.
1) Drop flowers off at the hospital welcome desk. The volunteers there will know who needs them most.
2) Leave a sticky note that simply says “You are looking good!” on public bathroom mirror.
