Oh my goodness, there is so much to be happy about today it’s quite unbelievable
1. First off, I am so thankful (and happy) for the wonderful response and support I am getting towards High Five Friday I love hearing about everyone’s accomplishments over the past week It’s also really nice to see that some of you are linking up to my post, so other readers can hop over to your blog and see the High Five Friday celebration happening over there as well! Honestly, thank you so much for helping me celebrate such an important thing yesterday High fives to all of us
What else am I happy about?
2. Well, if you have been following along with me for some time now, you would probably have realized by now that I have a dream of making a difference in the world by helping others. Now, this can seem very intimidating, but I know I can do it I have such a passion about making a difference in someone’s life that when Sarah asked in her most recent post “What do you want ‘more than anything in the world’?” I replied with the answer:
“I want to help others more than anything in the world!”
I have many different ideas up my sleeve on how I can make a difference, but when Lindsay posted about Pass It Forward through the Shine Project my list on how I can make a difference got a bit longer
If you have already heard about the Pass It Forward project, great – you’re going to hear about it again because it’s worth repeating for those who have not heard about it yet The following description has been taken from Ashley’s blog which describes the project:
“Pass It Forward was designed to get people to do little things, everyday, that makes an impact on the community around them. Pass it Forward is designed around a card. Each card is given a unique ID number. Lets say we’re at McDonalds, and I decide to pay for the person behind me in the drive through. I’d give the cashier the card, and tell them to pass it along to the next car when the give them the food that has been paid for. I then go home and log into the website that was on the card, and find my unique ID number. I log into it, and add my information… My first name, city, and a description of what I did….
If the person behind me was you, you would pass it forward to someone else, and then would go home and do the same thing.
From the very beginning, you will be able to track where your card goes, and how many people you affect just by doing one simple act of kindness.
I’m excited to see how many people we affect by doing this. Imagine tracking your card, and over a period of time, seeing that 100 other people had good things happen to them just because you did something simple.”
Right as soon as I heard about this project I knew I had to get involved So, I headed over to Ashley’s blog and purchased my Pass It Forward card!
I cannot wait until I get these cards in my hands
Oh the things that I will be able to do with them! Hehe!
More on why I am happy…
3. I get to see my Mommy today!
I have been loving the time I got to spend with my Daddy this week, but let’s be real – a girl needs her Mom, too!
4. I also have pretty rockin’ looking nails these days!
There’s no denying it, shatter polish rules!
5. Weekend = pancakes <3
YUM! A mountain of pancakes with chocolate protein sauce and my homemade strawberry sauce, too!
I leave tomorrow morning (early morning, think 5 AM early!), but I will be sure to post once I am back in London
Lots of love!
What’s making your Saturday happy?
Did you buy your Pass It Forward card yet? You know you want to…
Do you like shatter polish? I am thinking of doing a review on the brands I have used so far and my favourite colour combinations! How do you like the sounds of that!?
