For awhile, I was almost shocked when no one took me up on the offer I made on Facebook. I thought that was my widest connection, but know, too, that a post can get buried on a feed so it doesn't always show up. Then, too, some folks tell me that they took me up on it years ago, and want to give others the chance.
I wonder about the RAK's or radical acts of kindness and if this is where I want my energy to lean into.
PIF is important to me because I feel like a person who has known and knows great privilege in this world. It feels good to give back in ways that I can, such as making something in the fabric arts. They are tangible items that are truly made with my love, and my best efforts.
Being kind seems different from the act of paying it forward. RAK's would require that I be out and about and I am not at this stage of my life. Oh, I see and feel and hear the change in me as I relate to store clerks or people who shop there at the same time I might.
