Nothing Like a Deadline . . .

I’ve been wanting to do more sewing, more crafty projects, but my allocation of time lately hasn’t coincided with that desire.  Enter Facebook and the “I will make something . . . for YOU” note.  An excellent idea for those that need a little motivation to exercise that crafty side of the brain.

Truth be told, we could just challenge ourselves to do that regularly.  Pick a random five or so people you know and send them a spontaneous gift in the mail or a meal to their door.  Radical hospitality or a random act of kindness, any way you look at it, it’s a good thing.

A word of caution, however, is due — acts of kindness boost feel-good endorphins.  I couldn’t turn my commenters away.  Not only did I sign up to make five things, but I agreed to 10!  I love a challenge.  I love to give.  I love to create.  It’s a win-win-win situation.

Now, to manage my time.  I have the rest of the year to surprise myself.
