Haven't heard of the 30 Days of Kindness? Click here to find out more. Just starting? That's okay! Feel free to start this challenge right in the middle. You can make up the days you missed through November, if you like.
Buy someone lunch. It can be difficult to give up your money for somebody else... and even more difficult to convince a friend that you're actually willing to pay for their lunch. But both of these things are possible. And your challenge for today.
If someone came up to you one day and said, "Hey, I really feel like buying you lunch today," wouldn't it make your day? You might think, "Wow, I have great friends who really care about me and like to see me happy." It's a compliment that someone would want to spend their money on you.
This could also help start a trend of kindness. Often, when you buy someone's lunch, they'll feel indebted to you and pay it forward, buying either your lunch another day or someone else's. What a great way to continue these thirty days of kindness!
I'll let you decide how to pay for someone's lunch. Tell them ahead of time that you'd like to take them out for lunch... or go with them like normal and as they take out their wallet, say, "No, I'll get it." It's up to you.
I want to hear your stories! Leave me a comment and share what you did during today's challenge. If you have a picture or two, feel free to send them to me. If you're blogging about today, send me the link and I'll feature it on this blog.
Stay tuned until later today to see what my friends and I did for today's act of kindness.
TOMORROW: Volunteer your time!
