You can be THAT guy!
There's been a lovely rash of random happiness that has happened lately that benefits really everyone: people attempting to make other people happy.
There is a sticky note in the emplyee bathroom quoting The Beatles song Dear Prudence: "The sun is up, the sky is blue, it's beautiful and so are you!" I'm sure I am not the only one who smiles every time.
For our anniversary, Dave and I planned two seperate events with the sole purpose of delighting the other. For me, Dave surprised me with an Aretha Franklin concert. For him, I hired an Elvis impersonator.
A co-worker brought in a taco bar for dinner the other night simply because she made extra meat and wanted to share.
My mom came up for the weekend to help us out with Will while we did the skating competition and all these concerts. I lamely offered her licorice and catered meals in return, but she was happy to do it so "you two could spend some time together alone," her anniversary gift to us.
Opening doors for others.
Offering a stick of gum.
Giving someone that extra coupon you won't need.
Giving the next person in line your gift card because the balance was under a dollar and I didn't want it cluttering my purse.
All these things add up to a world that is a little nicer and a whole lot happier.
