Passing on the Shine | One To Nothin'

Passing on the Shine

I received my Pass It Forward card from Ashley of The Shine Project yesterday, and after a lot of brainstorming I decided it would be really fun to surprise my sister, Brandy, with some treats and words of encouragement. Today marks the end of her first week at a brand new job (I'm talkin' big girl job, the kind where you think long and hard about what will be best for you and your family kind of a job), and it just so happens to be the kind of job where you are doing nice things for others every single day. Not to mention, she's always inspiring me to do great things, so I figured she'd be the perfect person to continue spreading the shine. Luckily I still had the key to her casa from when I used to nanny for my two nephews over the summer, so I snuck in while she and her husband were at work and left these treats on her dining room table.
Water balloons for the boys, doggie treats for their Aussie, sugar-free candy for my sista and a double shot of espresso for my brother-in-law. I felt all tingly and excited, kind of like Christmas morning, as I was sneaking around trying to surprise them. What a great feeling. I will definitely continue to spread the shine, with or without the cards. Really, nothing beats the feeling of doing something that might brighten someone else's day. And while we're on the subject of doing things for others, please check out how this amazing woman spent her 35th birthday doing 35 (super fun and creative) random acts of kindness. I think everybody should make this their new birthday tradition, I know I am.

Did you do anything nice for anyone today? Please comment and tell me your good deeds of the day, week, month, it doesn't matter! Spread the Shine!
