So as a start - i'll just say - just because I wasnt blogging doesnt mean I wasnt doing :)
I reached my 40 at 40 on 40 :) I actually thought that I would get more done before then - but didn't.
Ok on to my RAK's

RAK#40 – Handwrote thank you cards for all attended my birthday party with words of encouragement, thanks and well wishes
Well there you have it - I had so much fun doing this. Not only fun but I have been so touched by everyone's response to this. It has been AMAZING!!! I have gotten so much more from doing this than I ever expected to - I knew it would be positive and 'good' but I didnt know how good.
The best news story ever that could have come from this - upon hearing 'my story' (haha) one of my co-workers decided to implement a 'challenge' at work for everyone to do 'Random Acts of Kindess' for others as part of our "Live Well" Campaign! This is so exciting - this means that my 40 just became two fold/three fold etc ! It's being passed on and I think that is one of the best.things.ever! I mean all I wanted from this was to 'go into my forties' on a positive note and spread kindness. I've caused a ripple effect and its one of the most important things I've done.
I hope you all go out and do something for someone else today. xox
