I've been working on decluttering and wanting to simplify my life. In my house I came across a tealight candle holder with Embrace Life etched in the glass. It wasn't something that provided me value and I wanted to get rid of it. One problem I have on getting rid of stuff is the guilt of getting rid of something that is perfectly good. If I could give it to someone that would enjoy it, even for a minute of knowing they received a gift, that would make me happy. I decided I would give the candle holder to a lady in the office as a RAK- a random act of kindness. I now have a plan where I can succeed in giving and focus on others instead of my own problems.
Its easy to give gifts to people you like. This particular lady I have been butting up against lately. She is a wonderful person, works hard and makes a lot of good changes but I've been struggling with working with her. It took me a couple tries to drop off the item at her desk when she wasn't there. All the note said was
You've Received a RAK
