I'm not perfect!

Hey everyone, by now you may have gathered that I always try to be honest, but kind! I always try to be polite & encouraging! But I'm not perfect!

Today i realized that more than ever! I sat down with some friends I hadn't seen in a while and I said something about another person that was rather rude! I shouldn't have and regret it immensely! I don't talk like that... Not usually! So I apologize now for my rude & stupid remark! I know you may not know what i said, and I'm not repeating it, but I don't know what I was thinking! Sorry!

I think I'm going to ring these friends and apologize for my behavior!

This is not who I am and definitely not who I want to be! I hope you learn from my mistakes!

Luv D

Kindnesses passed on by a friend

Hey everyone, a friend sent this too me and I had to share because I hope it inspires you as much as it does me! That little ray of sunshine and hope!

"Hi Daena. I thought you would like these two kindnesses I noticed today. One - a young high school boy in the supermarket near here was buying snacks for his day, and did not have quite enough change . The woman behind the till reached into a drawer and gave him 40 cents. "People sometimes leave their change behind" she said with a smile.

The second happened at the Anti-Poverty week service today. One of the homeless people we had with us gave the speaker (the CEO of a large welfare organisation) a donation of all the loose change he had in his pocket -about $2.80. "For the poor", he said.

Thought you would find this as beautiful as I did! Have a wonderful day! :) luv D

Migraines and kindnesses...

Hey everyone,
I am still alive which has been a bit of an effort on my part this week as I have just survived two migraines in less than a week! But I still have managed to do my kind act a day regardless of the pain I have been through! Just wanted you to know I am still committed! :)

My sister loves me (and is proclaiming my awesomeness to all of Facebook, lol) this week as I made the extra effort to spoil her and do some cleaning at her house whilst she, her husband & their kids were on holiday! It's school holidays so keeping the kids entertained is far more important than some hard cleaning! At least that's my opinion! Lol!

Anyway, during my migraines I struggle to stand up, people suddenly start glowing with auras & the pain is intense, I also can't handle much light! But I managed to medicate (with prescribed medications - please don't do this without medical consultation!) enough to make mum a cup of tea and did some cleaning! With regular breaks I survived! You might think i am crazy, and you are probably right! :D lol!

Anyways, I wanted to write about this because there are things in life that often hold us back and we shouldn't let them! I struggle a lot with holding myself back from being extraordinary. But it was a nice change for me to push through pain & discomfort to prove my commitment to making this world a better place! I hope if you get the chance, you will choose to benefit the world and not be held back by self imposed restrictions!

This doesn't mean you should disregard your own health & well being! When I did my kindnesses I did them after sleeping several hours (which is also a consequence of the migraines) and also made sure I was well hydrated! And I took regular breaks! But the ability to push through far outweighed the pain for me! Because it was something that would normally stop me! I don't want to be stopped. I want to make a difference!

I hope this finds you well!
Luv Daena x

Thankyou Water... TV Commercial! AWESOME!!!!

Hey everyone,
for those that follow the Facebook page of 365 Days of Kindness this wont be a surprise for you but for those of you who don't, on October 2, I was shopping at the local shopping center and discovered that in the post office they were selling Thankyou Water. I posted about it as a kindness idea the next day becuase its awesome! :)

Now for those of you who don't know about this amazing product, let me give you the low down.

Thank you water ..."is a social enterprise. We exist because in developing nations almost 900 million people don't have access to safe water. But with your help we can change this. Visit to see the projects you are funding by choosing this water. Thank you". (this was on the back of the bottle of water i bought! :) 

  I love this water because every bottle you buy goes to provide one months worth of safe water to someone in need!

Why I am bringing this up now is because they have just released their first TV commercial, and its gorgeous. Film makers from around Australia donated their time and effort to creating this master piece. If that isn't kindness i don't know what is! So you can see it here... because I had to share! :) 

 Currently I think it's only in Australia but you never know! So if you see it... thankyou water is the way to go! And do a kindness for people who need clean water! :)

Enjoy! Luv D x
