My RAOK... (Random Act of Kindness)

Have you ever stopped to really think about your Beliefs?  About HOW your live your life?  About WHAT you really and truly think about the Cause and Effect of YOUR life on this world?  I thought I knew who I was and what I thought until I actually had to put it down on paper in black and white and then I discovered that although I could repeat quite a number of someone else's ideas... I had not really stopped to consider my own!  So I spent a few days thinking about "WHAT do {{I}} believe?" and this is what I ended up with:
I used the myStamp Box "Thanks a Latte" stamp set to create this little envelope

I Believe in LOVE
I Believe that one person CAN make a difference
I Believe that we Aways get What We NEED
I Believe that when you are Ready the "Teacher will Appear"
Here is the note on the back of the envelope
But most of all ... I Believe in the Ripple Effect - the idea that a small, random act performed at the right time can effect a change so profound that it could potentially spread far enough to touch people on the other side of the world.  And if it is an act of KINDNESS wouldn't that effect a positive change?  I would hope so... 

So based on my now-defined Belief System I made this little envelope and put in one $5 bill and left it in a public place...  a little hidden away, but still findable... with the belief that the ONE person who really needs it will find it when it will make a difference in their life... and then maybe at another point in time they will "pay it forward" and be the next ring in the "ripple" and so on and so on!

My husband thinks I'm being totally unrealistic and I am now GIVING money away (Grin), but I don't think so, and anyway... I have to try!  Who knows, maybe one day YOU will actually be "hit" by one of my little ripples!
Who knows... Maybe YOU will find this one day!
