Today there has been laughter (at The Sister smearing whipped cream over her face) and there has been tears (when I accidentally somehow, I have no idea, managed to delete pictures of one of our tasks from the camera before they’d been transferred to the computer), but through it all there has been GISHWHES. I haven’t slept or eaten properly in days. It got me wondering just why I was doing this to myself?
One of the messages that GISHWHES is trying to promote is “Death to normalcy”. It’s far too easy to get stuck in a rut and forget about enjoying life. This week I have done some crazy things and I think I have brightened a few people’s days, which makes me feel good. I also have no doubt that I have gotten on other people’s nerves, but at least I’ve provided them with some interest!
It’s also all about helping others and promoting the charity Random Acts. A new task was posted today to help out a family that has suffered particular bad luck to get their lives back on track. And a lot of the tasks involve helping people – such as donating money to food banks and cleaning up litter.
And the more the word is spread, the better known Random Acts becomes, the more people join in GISHWHES next year and the more happiness is spread around the world.
