I don’t want to be one of those people who flaunts their good deeds in everyone’s faces, but I just wanted to share this.
I saw a picture just like this on here last night and decided that the people around here need some happiness and such. So, I made three of them (three for each floor), with the words, love, hope, faith, patience, courage, understanding, peace, passion, healing, strength, beauty, freedom, happiness, friendship, and release at the bottom. My roommate and I put them up around 10PM last night and by 12AM, five slivers of paper had been taken from the one on our floor (second photo). I was swelling with pride, though no one knew it was I who had done it. Then, just now, my roommate and I walked through each floor, seeing if any others had made any progress. The one on the second floor if the first photo, with all of the slivers except for “Beauty.” taken off of the paper, and someone wrote: “To whoever did this, Thank You.” on the paper. I almost cried. I was so happy. I wanted to help people, though this is really the smallest way possible, but to have actually accomplished it…I can’t tell you how happy I am. I’m so happy I was able to help at least one person. The sliver “Hope.” was also taped to someone’s door on that floor, and seeing that also made me extremely happy.
The papers on our floor and the third floor also have quite a few slivers taken off of them, but no messages. But I don’t even need a message: as long as someone is taking the slivers and there’s a possibility that I’ve just helped someone, I’m happy.
Seriously, everyone should do a random, anonymous act of kindness. It makes you feel like a million bucks.
