Advent Calendar of Kindness 2020 Day 25

I cannot believe how fast December went by. Today is the final day of the Advent Calendar of Kindness 2020. I want to thank everyone for reading these challenges, and for partaking in them, as well. If you weren’t able to do all of the challenges, no worries, you can always spread joy and love next year, too.

Today, let us reflect of how lucky we truly are. Some of us might not even realize just how lucky and fortunate we truly are. I hope on this magical day, you genuinely feel the love and magic that this day has to bring.

Don’t let the stress from the holidays ruin your day. Your kids aren’t going to remember if everything was perfect, what they more than likely will remember is how happy everyone was.

I hope this Bucket List is helpful to you.

Although I know that with Covid going on, perhaps it’s a good idea to only hug those you know.

It’s Christmas Eve, so we should continue to spread as much love, and joy to others. This has been a difficult year for all of us, but we can help others feel better.

Be sure to thank an essential worker, or a teacher whenever you can. Whether it is a cashier at a grocery store, or a nurse, or a receptionist at a doctor’s office. There are so many essential workers to thank. I’m sure they must be tired, and stressed out, so the least we can do is say thank you.

December just flew on by!

Perhaps in your community, you can organize a community library box, and a food box. That way people can drop off books and exchange food and books. Whenever you finish a book, and you are done having it you can just place it in the community library box for someone to enjoy. People in our communities might be in need of food, so leaving out pasta, bread, cans of soup, some hot chocolate mix might go a long way in helping someone.

Here are some examples of each. Mind you it doesn’t have to be this fancy, it can be whatever you like. I think it’s a perfect way to get the community involved.

Advent Calendar of Kindness 2020 Day 22

It’s hard to believe that it is almost Christmas! I believe that we should use this magical time to spread some love and cheer to others.

Today our challenge is to leave a positive review on someone’s restaurant, or service. Bonus points if you are writing about a small business. I know where I live we are in a lockdown, but our restaurants are still open for take out and delivery. Being able to provide a positive word, or two, about a restaurant, that will really go a long way. I know the restaurant owners would be so happy to read your review.

And if you don’t have a computer to write a positive review, recommend this restaurant to a friend, or a family member. Tell them what you ordered, and what you like to get next time.

I have really enjoyed writing about this topic of kindness, and how much joy we can spread to each other. It is a lot more positive than just spending money, making us go in debt.

Today’s challenge is to let someone know that they have changed your life, or has inspired you to do better. It can be written as a letter, email, or text message, or you can call up this person and let them how much of an impact they had on your life. I’m sure this person would love to hear that they had such an inspiring impact on your life.

This is from Saturday.

If you can do this, I know that some might not be able to do this one, but for those that can, donate blood. Especially during this time, because where I live is it’s winter, which brings in dangerous driving conditions and causes car accidents.

I know that there are some requirements that need to be met in order to donate blood, but if you do qualify, please consider it. You just never know who you may help. Of course, I am not forcing anyone to do this, but I am just making everyone aware that they have the power to help others.

Advent Calendar of Kindness 2020 Day 18

This project is to help others spread joy and kindness, instead of having to spend so much money on others. Mind you it is nice to get presents, but sometimes people often feel the need that they have to go hundreds of dollars in debt just to show someone you love them.

If you read this really cool book, and you want others to read it, leave it behind at a cafe, or on a bus. Leave a note explaining that you are leaving this book for someone else. This also works for self help books.

Advent Calendar of Kindness 2020 Day 16

Instead of stressing out about Christmas shopping, and wrapping everyone’s presents, let’s normalize hand-me-downs, gifts of love, or even no gifts. We shouldn’t have to go into debt telling people how much we love them.

Write a letter to your postal carrier, and let them know how much you have appreciated and how grateful you are for their services this year. I hope this year, people change their perspective on a postal carrier’s duties, since a lot of them delivered our parcels, which saved us from going to out to crowded malls. Or if you were in lockdown at sometime throughout the year, and the only way we could have gotten something we needed was to order it online.

You can leave this letter in your mail box, just be sure to write the words, Postal Carrier, or if you know their name, you can write that on your envelope. My Dad is a letter carrier, and a long time ago, one of the houses he delivered to, gave him a box of chocolates, and one of her Porcelain dolls to give to me. I loved it so much, that I still have it to this day.

Advent Calendar of Kindness 2020 Day 15

You should spend the day telling someone that you love them. Not only is it free, but this person would greatly appreciate hearing you say you love them. If you live with this person, say it to their face, if you can’t, you can message them, or write a letter.

It’s important to say this to those who you love., even if they already know that you love them.

To all of my followers, thank you for the likes and leaving kind words in the comments, just know I appreciate your love, and positive vibes. Thank you!

Advent Calendar of Kindness 2020 Day 14

Today’s challenge is to offer help to a stranger, a loved one, or a friend, or all three if you feel extra helpful. There is a lot of people who need help around this time. You can help someone financially, help them with a task, or give someone your time. There’s so many ways you can help someone.

Today, I helped my sister by offering her my time. My niece was at her Grandparents for the day, so my sister and I had her place to ourselves since her boyfriend was at work. She needed help going through all of her clothes. She has been a bit occupied to spend time sorting, and organizing her clothes. Which is totally understandable since she has returned to work. It is challenging to juggle a job, a house, and be a mom. I wouldn’t know from experience first handedly, but I can see why it is stressful.

We sorted her clothes in various categories: what needed to be washed, and what needed to be donated. My sister had a lot of baskets on hand which made it easy to sort the laundry by person (my niece, my sister, and her boyfriend). When we finished sorting through everything, we carried all of those baskets to her laundry room. That way they would be ready to go for her to do this week.

I helped her vacuum her floors, as well. And I helped her put away my niece’s clothes, since she was able to do one load while I was there.

I am so happy that I was able to help her. She was able to donate a lot of her clothes, so that’s exciting. I’m sure someone will be able to use them and appreciate them more than my sister did.
