I’m turning 51 on August 28th.
I am really excited!
In English, we have the expression ‘Age only matters if you are a cheese or a wine.’
The last time I checked, I was neither!
So many people fear getting old.
But not me, I am proud to be 51! I have honestly never felt better about myself or my life.
And I am thrilled that I have been given the chance to live this long. So many wonderful people did not make it this far.
Every day is a gift.
And that’s where you come in.
To help me with a list of 51 good deeds for people and our planet that I can do as part of my birthday celebration!
It’s a list of 51derful things!
I have already started, based on suggestions I have received on my social media platforms when I posted my idea a few days ago.
I picked up 51 pieces of trash at Lowlands. After seeing this photo, others started doing the same!
I also made a motivational video for new English students, sent a personal card to someone having a hard time, got in touch with charities, and more.
There is still some space for more ideas.
Here are some things on my list so far – just to give you an idea about what’s happening in Buffiland these days….
*go vegan for a week
*plant a tree
*clean up 51 cm of my garden
*leave a book on a train for a stranger
*organize another free hug day (details coming soon!)
*send my ebook to a nursing home so that the residents can learn English on their Ipads
*volunteer at a charity for a day
*share a budget recipe
*share a meal with a stranger
*take my own coffee cup with me
*take my own water bottle with me
* bake a cake for someone
*do a free English lesson online
So, my dear, what is missing from this list? You tell me. New suggestions come in every day!
If you have any ideas on what I can do to help make the world a little bit happier, please let me know!
Thank you so much, I can’t wait to hear from you!
