A nurturing place for people who can't sleep

Plan on performing an act of random kindness.


Recently I was driving through a Starbucks after work for my Venti Latte for the long commute home. When I got to the cashier window, the young man said the people in the vehicle in front of me paid for my coffee. I said “are you kidding”. He said “nope”. I wanted to thank them but they had already driven away. So I asked that nice young man what the lady in the red sedan behind had ordered. He said a tall latte. I said I will pay it forward and I bought her the drink.

Driving away from that Starbucks I felt elated. I was so thankful for the kind random act that complete strangers bestowed upon me and it felt good to pay it forward and do the same for someone else.

So think of a random act of kindness you will do tomorrow. Write down your idea.
