What's going on here?

I've made a commitment: to do one good deed per day. Large or small, it doesn't matter. Self-sacrificing or not, extraordinary or mundane, it doesn't matter. Just one thing every day, that's all.

The more I do good, the better I feel about myself. Truly, to benefit others is to benefit yourself. I hope this journal may inspire others who also yearn to do good. So join me on this journey, if you will, and think about the difference you can make in your own life.

A stranger on the bus

Actually, she wasn't really a stranger. We've been riding the same bus for almost five years, every Thursday, for all of three blocks. She gets on at the stop just before I get off, and always sits in the first seat while I sit in the third (strategically positioning myself away from the blaring radio speakers). We've nodded to each other and smiled plenty of times. I thought why not finally introduce myself. Her face broke into a big, warm smile.

ONE GOOD DEED: Talk to an old lady that always rides the same Thursday bus.
