Wild Woman Wednesday
Wild women – there’s only three shopping days left, and you know how crazy people can get. Last night it was rainy here in NJ, and I counted three fender-bender accidents in a 10-mile commute. Everyone is so busy speeding around they aren’t paying any attention to others. So what can a wild woman do?
Wild women can exercise their put others first muscles today. If you’re in a line, let someone in front of you – whether it’s at the grocery store, in a department store, or in a traffic line. If you’re in a fast food line (I know some of you are succumbing to this easy way out – and I understand – just don’t make a habit of it), pay for the person behind you. Just tell the checkout clerk to tell them Merry Christmas! Imagine the good will you can start – perhaps it will be a chain reaction! Look for ways to cheer someone up today and practice random acts of kindness. Pay for someone else’s coffee. Put a love note under your spouse or child’s pillow or in their pocket or lunch bag. Bring in some healthy snacks to work to try and counteract all the junk food, candy, and cookies. If you’re single and have the time, or if you’re a mom with kids, offer to babysit for another woman with kids for a couple of hours so she can have some down time. Grab a girlfriend and treat her to a mani/pedi together. The possibilities are endless, and you are creative, so think of something. Help a sister out.
You can do this – you are a big-hearted, wonderful wild woman!!!!! Be a surprise blessing to someone else today – you never know how much it might mean to that one person.
