10 Things To Do

According to Patch Adams, M.D.
(I found this list in the Bonus Features of the movie "Patch Adams" - based on a true story, for those who have not seen it)

1. Pick up all the trash in an area in your hometown; be its guardian. Tell others about it.

2. Be friendly to everyone at all times; experiment outrageously.

3. Offer a shoulder or foot rub in any environment.

4. Always speak up for justice, no matter how much it costs.

5. Go once a week to nursing homes to cheer people up as a friend.

6. Turn off your TV and become interesting. Perform yourself.

7. Consider being silly in public. Sing out loud. Wear funny stuff.

8. Find ways to need a whole lot less money; share beyond belief.

9. Have potlucks frequently, with neighbours, co-workers, strangers. Work toward living in extended families.

10. Take your vacations in your own hometown and spend the money working on projects there that help build community.

Thought it was worth a share.

If you have never seen Patch Adams - go find a way to see it.
