These last few days of December are probably the most bittersweet of them all. On the one hand, the prospect of a fresh start in the new year is exciting, but at the same time it’s sad that all the festivities are coming to an end. Fortunately there’s one aspect of December that we can continue even after the month: spreading the love.
Earlier this week, I came across this link on 26 Random Acts of Kindness in honor of each person killed in Sandy Hook Elementary School and it really touched me. The idea is make a stranger smile and hopefully he/she will be moved and continue to “pay it forward”. It doesn’t have to be a grand gesture- even buying your porter a cup of coffee, complimenting a stranger, or feeding the homeless all count. For more ideas, check out the link.
When this post comes up, I’ll either be:
- En route to the airport
- Kicking myself for overpacking
- Sighing of relief that I didn’t exceed the luggage allowance
As sad as I am to leave London, it’s been an absolutely wonderful trip- good times with greats friends/family and plenty of yum food. Although I shared a few pictures of the restaurants & foods I ate over the past 3 weeks, some went amiss…yet definitely deserve a mention:
- Pret A Manger (a.k.a. home of the best hot chocolate ever)
I’ll catch you from the other side of the pond. Two fingers up…peace out, London!
How are you going to “pay it forward?”
What’s the best thing you ate this past week?
