It was another day when my body felt a little rough, my brain a little disengaged. The to-do list seemed to unfurl across the floor, and I couldn’t summon up the enthusiasm to tackle it. As before, I turned to the blogosphere for inspiration, and found it in a fresh point of view in ”Coffee and a Serving of Perspective“. With Anne Arundel County being home base to so many military families, we probably all know someone who has had their life affected by deployment. This post not only put my draggy day into perspective, but also helped me feel positive about something small I could do for someone else who needed a boost.
For a mere $2, Cup o’ Joe lets you send a personal email and a hot cup of ‘real’ coffee to a deployed service member to enjoy during a quiet moment. For those who are serving in an area without access to cafes, there is an option to send a bag of coffee beans via chaplain to the front lines. Such a simple idea, but such a kind way to let an individual person know that their efforts are appreciated.
No matter how strained things get for us, consider how little it takes to brighten someone else’s day. Like paying the toll for the person behind you, or bringing in doughnuts for another department at work, or calling Customer Service to compliment instead of complain.
And when you have a quiet moment to think good thoughts, take a look through the blog Gina Left the Mall. Plenty of inspiration to go around.
