I have officially discovered that reading blogs can be addictive! You can just bounce around from one blog to another and then forget where you even started! Which is what happened to me tonight. I got on to check the blogs I am following and then from one went to another and then stumbled across a blog that allowed a small thought way back in the back of my mind to come crashing to the front!

I want to partake in RAOKs, random acts of kindness. I have been thinking about this for some time, but just haven't acted upon it yet. Well today is the day!

Mique over at {30 Days} pushed me to rise to the occasion. I found her site through a linkup blog (sorry I couldn't go back and find where, hence the previous statement) and have spent hours looking at her ideas and other blogs that she linked up to.

So now to begin.

Mique does a RAOK on the 14th of every month, which started out as a birthday gift to her son. His birthday is on the 14th and this helps her to make sure that she does it every month. She has also asked others to join her on these days. Perfect! My step-mom's birthday is on the 14th also, and what better way to honor her. She would be so proud and excited about this project. I have also decided to add another day in the month. The plan is the 14th is set aside for a bigger RAOK and the other one a smaller project.

I have not decided yet if I am going to blog about this project other than this one. It may take out the randomness. Since many people that I will be doing this for, probably read this, it might defeat the purpose. I am not sure yet, might have to get back to you on that one! Some of the RAOK may not be anonymous and those may be blogged about.

The point is, I am ecstatic about this idea and can't wait to get started.

What are some ideas you have for an RAOK?
What is a RAOK you have received yourself?


  1. What an awesome idea! Sometimes I think RAOK just come up in sort of an organic way. Other times, I know I have to assert myself and step out of my comfort zone to do it. I really got motivated when a stranger handed us Taylor Swift tickets back in January. (Yes, I blogged about it, but not doing a plug here. lol) That one RAOK has now become a friendship with that man and our family. Who knew? So, I say go for it! Be bold! And definitely blog about it!! That's what made your *heart flutter*, right?? :)

    1. Very true! I am just wondering how "secret" to keep my identity. I guess it doesn't really matter, because it is going to make someone's *heart flutter* regardless. Ok, I will probably blog about it! ;0)

      P.S Your Taylor Swift story helped water that thought seed too

  2. What a great idea! It really is the little things in life and we don't know how our one little smile or kind word can actually change the lives of others.

    1. It's all about the little things in life! Thanks for the comment and encouragement!

  3. I like this idea! Even if you don't blog it, tell me what you do, okay?

  4. Add me to the list of people that want to hear about it. You could inspire a lot of us to try the same thing.♥♫
