It's the little things that make a big impact.


Something really simple can really make a persons day.

Is there a small act of kindness you can pay someone in your life that would make them a happier little bunny, if even just for a few moments? Do you have a house mate stuck in their room trying to finish their thesis or so busy with work that they don't have time to do simple things like make a nice proper home cooked meal? Do you live at home with your mom or dad? Is there something you can do for them like run them a bath and take your little brother or sister off their hands for half an hour so then can soak and relax? Do you have a friend who has stuff going on and needs to be distracted for an hour or two just to unwind, couldn't you just take them to the cinema, or to the beach, or for a coffee or a walk or a drive or something?

To me, that's what TBG is about, just as much as the stuff that you can do to help an entire community or area, you can really really make someones day by doing something really simple and just help them relax and unwind for a few minutes.

We all go through times in our lives where stuff is just piling up on us and we don't have time to think let alone do something nice for ourselves and lets be honest, if someone did something as simple as bring us a cup of tea and a sandwich during these times, we'd be extremely grateful. So put yourself in your parents, your friends, your sister or brother or even your neighbours position and try to think “if that was me, what would make me smile?”.
Hell, if it's a hot day, just buy them an ice cream, I swear, they will love it.
The little things in life really do make it worth living.

Be a giver, make someones day, it will make you feel good too.

Good point! I keep trying to think of these huge elaborate acts but the small ones can be just as meaningful.

That's so true!! I loved your "tips"...I mean, doing something simple for a relative, for example, would not only make them happier but it would also improve family relationships! :) so sweet...so nice :)

a whole mind-set or life-style. What a great way of thinking.

I just see people my life who could use a little lift now and them and I think that really we all have people like that in our lives.
