The Best Way to Feed your Soul this Fall

I seriously cannot believe that it’s September!  How does this happen, people?  I swear I was just at a wedding in June.  Tan.  Dancing my booty off.

I guess I have to succumb to the seasonal Gods and accept reality that it’s not only September, but the 3rd day of September!  Yeesh.  The good news is that there is a silver lining. This lining is none other than the 31 Random Acts of Kindness that I’ll be performing (along with many others) the entire month of October!  Say what?  If you didn’t see the last post, click over here!  I give some background on why I’m so passionate about changing the world.  No big deal, or anything.


In all seriousness, I’m really excited about this adventure.  So excited I created a twitter handle for the movement (@31RandomActs) and a Facebook Page! <–Click to Like/Join.  Leading up to October, I plan on encouraging people through quotes and other dialogue to get excited for the 31 Random Acts.  In October, I will highlight people’s random acts, on a daily basis, through the social media outlets! :)

I also developed a suggestive list of ideas for the 31 Random Acts, which is provided below!  I hope this list is not too daunting.  First and foremost, if you want to join us, you do not have to perform the random acts / ideas I suggest here.  Heck, if you don’t even want to do 31 acts then don’t!  If you just want to pick one or perform a big one on your own or just stare at this blog post and encourage someone else to do something in October, that is great!  I welcome all kinds of RAK love.

Honestly, there is only one RULE that I would like to enforce and that is, if you decide to participate, please tell someone that you are conducting 31 Random Acts (or however many you choose) in October 2013!  As I said in my original post, if we can get even one additional person to perform a random act in October, we will double our impact on the world!

Are you excited??!  Do you want to know what’s next??!

“We want more. We want more!”  I can just hear you now.
