I did a week-long kindness challenge on my Instagram page (@haleesthoughts) a couple of months ago. If you didn’t do it, it’s never too late to start!
I wanted to do something that could make someone’s day better. I wanted to start a domino effect. I wanted kindness to be spread. I prayed and prayed. Then it came to me. I needed to do a week-long kindness challenge. I remember that at first I was kind of like, “That’s it. That’s all you want me to do?” That was until I realized that the Lord knew the bigger plan. So I started praying about what each day’s challenges should be for months. I thought I finally had it all figured out, when it just didn’t feel right. I knew that I needed to wait. I waited for several months until I finally felt like it was the right time.
When the time finally felt right and I was able to post them, I was super excited. All I wanted was that maybe just ONE person would smile because of something someone did because of my challenge, and then maybe they could pass it on.
I can’t say that I had any amazing experiences or heard of any, but I know that it’s what my Heavenly Father wanted me to do. It’s what I needed to do.
