It’s Your Turn

Do a good turn daily.

The slogan of all scouts, both girl and boy, is the same—”do a good turn daily.” It’s a good slogan to live by.

How often do any of us follow that advice? When we have an opportunity to “do a good turn” do we take it? Do we even notice. or are we too caught up in our own problems to see anyone else’s?

And it’s so simple. It’s something each of us can do in a moment and it might just make a difference.

See a piece of trash left on the ground? Pick it up.

See a shopping cart in the parking lot? Take it back into the store.

See someone struggling with grocery bags and a door? Hold the door open.

These are the kind of things I try to notice every day when I’m out and I try to remember to do them. Just three examples, but there are many more. And I’m not going to say that by doing these things we’ll solve all the world’s problems. But we might make someone else’s day a bit better. And they might do the same for someone else.

Call it a random act of kindness, or loving your neighbor as yourself.

But either way, it’s your turn to do a good turn today.

    This is such a great reminder that the little things in life can make such a big difference! I had no idea this was the slogan for these organizations but that is great. Just stopping by from the Five Minute Friday link up! Thanks for the encouragement.
