1. Having many library patrons thank me for volunteering at the organization’s monthly book sale. As one man said, “This community library is a treasure – and it’s only here because people make the effort to support it. So thank you.” I didn’t ‘need’ the accolades (as I strongly value libraries and want to do what I can to support them), but it did feel nice to have other people recognize (and value) my donation of time.
2. Seeing a new neighbor [the family moved into the subdivision a month ago] already improving their new home and beautifying their landscaping! A terrific first impression. 🙂
3. Watching a brief (3 minute) video that shares an incredible simple yet amazingly powerful idea. A small part of me wonders, “Why didn’t I ever think of doing that?” But a much larger part of me thinks, “I’m delighted that someone did!” Simple little concepts really can change the world.
