The Resolve to Give Challenge

Christmas 2010 came and went like every other Christmas. The malls opened their doors wide; the churches rang with praises, the decorations went up; the kids opened presents; good times were shared round a big dinner. And then it was over. Just like every other Christmas.

Why is it always like that? A feel good month, a few days of rest, then its forgotten. Why can’t we keep that giving spirit everyday? Could I?

Maybe I could keep that spirit of giving alive by doing one thoughtful, giving thing everyday. So I threw up a Facebook post as a challenge to myself to see if I could.

The original Facebook post:

Post-Christmas Resolution:

Every day until next Christmas, I’m going to try
to do something helpful for someone or our community;
something which might be a little uncomfortable;
something which connects me to someone;
something which requires me to listen to people I disagree with;
or something which forces me to seek out people who need a hand up.
in the hopes that it becomes a habit.
