I started my 30 Random Acts of Kindness this week as part of my #30before30 list! 🎂 At first, I actually had no idea what to do besides pay for someone else's coffee in the drive through 🤷🏻♀️ But after asking you guys for ideas and browsing Pinterest I ended up coming with 110+ different ideas. There are SO many amazing ideas out there! A few of you asked me to share my list, so I typed them up as a blog post (link is in profile 😊)I would LOVE if anyone wants to join me in spreading some joy 👯♀️ I'm also going to share the ideas that I actually do here. (My birthday isn't until October, but I'm starting now so I have time and $ to make it as meaningful as possible!) 🤗
Here is what we did this week👉🏻
1️⃣ Hid bubbles and chalk at the park for kiddos to find!
2️⃣ Hid a few dollar bills in the toy section at the Dollar Tree.
3️⃣ I found a gift card to Bed Bath and Beyond in an old wallet. I left it on a picture frame at the store for a customer to find!
I had so much fun doing this week—honestly way more than I expected. It was such a positive way to spend my free time 😊 I #spreadjoysaturday#shelleydoes30before30

Think back to the things you regret. Did those experiences fill you with wholesome, honest joy before you knew to regret it? If so, why would you
dampen that happiness with regret?
Accept it as a mistake if it was one and move on with the good memories, but it would be a shame to wish it had never happened if it had given you joy. #choosehappiness
Share an experience that made you happy!

We need to share more positive news / experiences in this world. Here I am doing my part to #spreadjoy being inspired by what is reported in this local paper in #kangra 😊
After lunch, brother Vilki asks me to sit with him under the giant trees, looking out at the mountains under a blue sky 🌤️ He pointed me to this article in the paper reporting the tale of an army general leading his soldiers in yoga at 1,800 meters 🏔️ How wonderful! 🏵️ And oh, here comes brother Rajesh bringing freshly made chai 🍵 wait ... he stopped at the stream in front of us ... His body bent down and and a stick in his hand ... What is he doing? 🤔 Looking closer I see him trying to fish out a struggling fly which he later said does not know how to swim 🤗
Present moment, wonderful moment 😌
The last month at #plumvillage I went from saying "I travel around with a Canadian passport" to occasionally answering with "no country" 🌏 10 years living #nomadlife around the world, I've come to realize that there are beautiful people everywhere. Country is not a reliable discriminator (neither are religion, ethnicity, age, gender ... you get the point)
Peace and love is in the essence of who we are 🌱 When we nurture those seeds within ourselves, we nourish the world, and we attract our real tribe anywhere we are 💫 #sangha
I definitely find it easy to think my way into a place where I feel I don’t have enough information or clarity to continue moving forward.
Or to get myself to a place where I’ve decided that I have too much on my plate, and not enough time.
BUT remembering that action = clarity has made such a huge difference for me.
Things can get messy when you’re learning how to run your own business! Figuring out your offer, clarifying your message, planning your schedule...sometimes it’s easier to just not take another step forward and pause in fear of what might happen next.
Sometimes it’s hard to know what the next step even is. But making sure you make a bit of progress every single day (even if it isn’t the ‘right one’), will help make everything much clearer. ✨
I definitely feel much less stress and much happier when I push myself to a place where I’m taking action rather than frozen in place and stressing about which action is the right one to take next.

One of my most favourite things to do is give people random bunches of flowers, you know just cos. The total look of surprise, joy and unexpectedness is music to my soul. This bunch went to my sister from another mister.. she had peonies on her wedding day so when I seen Warragul Flower Shoppe had some in I couldn’t not surprise her.
What a beautiful bunch of blooms 😍
File this under weird shit I saw in #Atlanta today. A dude towing a helicopter fuselage and a cowboy in the middle of the city #nothingtoseehere 😏

🎁Today would have been my Mom’s 81st birthday. In her honor , I tipped the waiter just a bit extra. I am blessed in so many ways. I love my family and find joy daily. This biz has allowed me so much financial and life freedom! Grateful I could bless the waiter today! ⭐️My mom’s Alzheimer’s taught me to live life ,laugh often and love hard. It taught me that we don’t know how long we will have ,so make this life count! Go live your life out loud! Be proud when you bless others and be proud of all the 💰,travel and fun you have!! #Shotsforsocks #SchleytheDay

I know we’ve discussed my love of pink flowers before but seriously. These are all pink LEAVES, people! If that’s not amazing, I don’t know what is! And besides that, just look at how many different colors are on each leaf! So much color inspiration!
I’ve been saying this for years, but coleus and caladium are seriously major bang for your gardening buck, because even when your other flowers may not be blooming, these still provide you with a ton of color! I’ll love them till the day I die! We have pots of them on our front porch and out back on our deck. They’re great to mix in with all the flowers!💖🍃💕🌿💗 Hope you’re having a great weekend! Our day has ended up way busier than we’d planned, but hooray for a Sunday on the horizon, and hopefully with it, a Sunday afternoon nap! Haha!
So tell me, do you find these pretty leaves as amazing and inspiring as I do?😍
10 things I am thankful for....
