Happy Birthday Week!

Slice of Life

Sharing my slice of life (#slice2013) over at Two Writing Teachers.  Please join us!

On Wednesday I turn 42. 
I love birthdays. 


But this year, I wanted something different. Something more. I wish I could take credit for this idea, but I read it somewhere...I wish I could remember where.

For my birthday this year, I'm going to practice acts of kindness. Twenty-two (since my birthday is on the 22nd) during the week of my birthday. (Although I am going to try for 42, since I'm 42 years old.) 

I'm starting today...Sunday! 
I have a list of 22 ideas...

Can't share the ideas...yet!

Excited to start!!

I'll journal and blog about what I actually accomplished and what happened. Celebrate my birthday with me! Be generous! Spread joy! Do something special for someone else and share it in the comments here. I can't wait to see how far it spreads...


  1. What a great idea. Happy BIrthday!

  2. I love this idea! I have a couple of months to plan it!

  3. Happy birthday! What a wonderful idea! Can't wait to hear where it takes you!

  4. I love this idea, Michelle - your celebration is a gift to those around you, brilliant!
    And happy birthday...I turn 54 two days after your birthday. Yikes!

  5. Looking forward to hearing about the RAKs you do.

    Happy Birthday!

  6. Happy Birthday, Michelle! This is a terrific idea. I will spread as much kindness as I can in your honor, but I wish I lived closer to share some with you :-)

  7. Happy, happy Birthday Michelle! I've done one thing tonight, I made lemon cookies for the staff with whom I'm meeting tomorrow. I thought they could use a treat! So now I'll tell them to send a birthday wish to a blogger friend, Michelle and eat a cookie for her!

  8. Michelle,
    Your post made me think of this video Something you might like to do.


Please share your thoughts. I love comments!
