Little Things You Can Do To Make Someone's Day

Sometimes it just feels good to make somebody else feel good. Here are a few little things you can do for loved ones or complete strangers to make their day.

* Leave a little note for them to find when getting ready in the morning. Something personal or just and inspirational quote.

* Give a hug.

* Hold the elevator/door for someone.

* Help a mother with her arms full pull out a shopping cart.

* Let someone with small children or appears to be in a hurry ahead of you in line.

* Bring dinner (or even just desert) to someone who is sick, elderly or just plain busy/tired.

* Send flowers anonymously.

* When driving, give others an opening in heavy traffic or give up a good parking space.

* Offer a loved one a shoulder massage.

* Pick up lunch for a co-worker who is really busy.

* Leave a favorite pack of candy or gum for someone.

* Sincerely compliment everyone you see.

* Drop off travel size toiletries at a local shelter.

* When shopping, pick up little things/clearance items you know somebody else can use.

* Remove the mailing labels from your (current but finished) magazines and drop them off at hospitals and clinics.

Remember, when someone does something nice for you, pay it forward!

Quote from the 200 Movie: Pay It Forward

"Some people are too scared or something to think things can be different. The worlds not exactly...shit. I guess it's hard for some people who are so used to things the way they are - even if they are bad - to change and they kinda give up and when they do, everybody loses."
