You do something kind for a stranger and make their day. Perhaps you feed someone's parking meter, leave flowers on someone's doorstep, or donate anonymously to a charity.
This is one of my my fave things to do. I love to surprise people with little act of kindness all the time, it is never too much to reach out to someone when they need a helping hand.
When Paul and Imogen died my family were the recipients of so many beautiful acts of kindness, it was so special to me,the love and generosity of so many is what held my family together through the first twelve months.
Not a day does not pass by where I do not think about all of these people who reached out to my family and some of these people I will never know. This experience has made me realise the power and the magic of community and it also has inspired me to be a person who lives my life reaching out to others in what ever way I can.
One of my most favourite acts of kindness I like to do is to surprise someone with a bunch flowers every week - it makes me so happy when I see their faces light up with a smile. There have been times when the person receiving the flowers have especially needed a little sunshine in their life.
Thought I would share some of pictures from the 'Peak to Park' and 'Body Combat Class' - two fundraisers my amazing work mates and gym community did for my family just after the accident. They also did a race day a few months later to send my family on a holiday to get through our first Christmas without Paul and Imogen.
Beautiful people with the biggest hearts - I love them dearly and will never forget.
