Yeah! Thai Cabbage Noodles! I love this! It's easy, it's fast, it's delicious! It's got a paleo peanut satay feel to them. Have these saucy Thai cabbage noodles with anything: I just ate them with pineapple, my butter chicken and some Chinese broccoli with mushrooms…. Getting all the Asian influences on this meal, haha. It's also great with salmon, pork chops, crackers, BBQ chicken, – I think you get the idea: it's great with everything (I'm gonna have to throw it in an omelette).
Have you seen the movie Delivery Man? It's on TV right now. Well, when I was writing this it was on – less likely that it's on while you're reading this. David (Vince Vaughn) finds out that he is the biological father of over 500 progeny after depositing sperm to a bank in his youth. These now young adults don't know that David is their father, but starts to meet a bunch of them. What I love is how he starts looking after these strangers by doing little things that make a big difference to their lives. Here's the thing: These were all relatively small gestures that anyone could do. Could you imagine if we all treated strangers with this kind of kindness? Beautiful.
I lived in Vancouver while going to school to become a pharmacist – a residential neighborhood in Kitsilano. I walked everywhere in the area and met a number of the shopkeepers or employees on Broadway who I walked by on a regular basis. I felt a need to contribute to this community, in the form of random acts of kindness. From helping a man in a wheelchair get into his apartment, to banging on doors looking for the owner of the car with the flat tire parked on the a side road, to giving hot food and coffee to a homeless man down on his luck during some cold weather, to helping an elderly lady cross the street (I know, that actually happened, haha). I'm kinda yearning to watch Pay It Forward now too….
I'd like to hear about your random acts of kindnesses or random acts that you've been the recipient of, so please share them in the comments below. Let your acts motivate others to do something nice for their fellow man. Let those lovely ripples penetrate the universe!
