    Radiobarry's Random Kindness Thread

    Okay, if it is true - as suggested in another thread - that I have been "seduced" to post in random threads, I figured I'd start a random thread with a little different twist.

    A "random kindness" thread. I will chime in with some thoughts and affirmations about giving and receiving kindnesses that can really make a difference in our world.

    Feel free to talk about kindnesses you've given (since you're essentially anonymous here) and especially about those you receive - the special ones, and the little ones that make the world more special.


    Just for today I will try to live through this day only and not tackle my whole life problem at once.

    Just for today I will be happy. This assumes to be true what Abraham Lincoln said, that: "most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be."

    Just for today I will adjust myself to what is and not try to adjust everything to my own desires. I will take each day as it comes and fit myself to it.



    Just for today I will be agreeable. I will look as well as I can, dress becomingly, talk low, act courteously, criticise not one bit, not find fault with anything, and not try to improve or regulate anybody but myself.


    Just for today I will be unafraid. Especially I will not be afraid to enjoy what is beautiful and to believe that, as I give to the world, so the world will give to me.
    The preceding is adapted from a reading used by many 12-step groups, but I think it applies here too. This is your space for random thoughts and acts...of kindness.
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Radiobarry again.
    Cool idea, Radiobarry! I'll be back with some posts!

    I am grateful for the many kindnesses that Karla and localdisny and all my MC family has shown me.

    Karla - here's a great big cyber-"Bear"-hug for you, my friend...

    Re: Radiobarry's Random Kindness Thread

    Thank you for that kind reminder, VillainsFan!

    Daydreaming...wouldn't it be nice to live in a MiceChat world where the random kindness thread at least gives the "rant of the day" thread a run for its money...

    A dream is a wish your heart makes...

    I want to wish everyone who reads this today to have a wonderful blessed day!! and if you go out today, find some one to bless. open doors for people, give spare change where its needed, give a small donation of food, clothing etc. Do what you would want for your self. Have a great day and remember, what you do for others comes back to you

    Re: Radiobarry's Random Kindness Thread

    My ideas for being a kind MiceChatter.

    Think before you post.
    If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.
    Respect each and every MiceChatter's privacy.
    Don't have fun at anyone else's expense.

    I am going to go look kindness up in the dictionary.

    Re: Radiobarry's Random Kindness Thread

    I often find that on my worst days, some random person will do something to make me feel better.

    The girl at Starbucks or Coffee Bean will smile at me or they'll suggest something to make my coffee more special. Somebody in front of me in line at the grocery store will offer to let me ahead of them. Somebody on the freeway will actually use their turn signal. Or they'll let me in, when they see my turn signal.

    It's the little things that make my day.
    I pledge allegiance to the Earth, one planet, many gods, and to the universe in which she spins.

    One reminder...I would like to see at least a "little bit" of content "on topic" in each post of this random thread. Thank you so much.

    Re: Radiobarry's Random Kindness Thread

    No problem...I have a question. Does anyone know where I could find a pretty cheap flight to England sometime in late August? I want to go see my best friend who moved there last year, but everything I've found has been too expensive...and I'm worried that if I don't keep up contact we won't be friends anymore after a while (he rarely checks his e-mail)

    Re: Radiobarry's Random Kindness Thread

    The word "kind" is defined in the dictionary as an adjective, of a friendly, generous, benevolent, or gentle nature. Nice, congenial, affable, amiable, thoughtful, considerate, warm, affectionate.

    I have a tenant, who goes out of her way to be kind to me. If she's going to the store, she always asks if I need anything. Sometimes I find this annoying, however. I am so independent that sometimes her kindness makes me uncomfortable.
