Mission #5 – Sept 12, 2018

Good Morning, Agents!

Today's mission is based on the belief that opportunities to spread goodwill are being presented to us regularly, that these opportunities are a form of kindness to us that we need to practice identifying.

As such, your mission today is to practice identifying these opportunities in your life and act on as many of them as you can. As the day moves forward, allow one of these opportunities to fill your heart with wonder. To do this, pay attention to your role in its unfolding and then fulfill it. If it makes sense to do so, act on this opportunity in a way that honors both it and you. Feel free to use your imagination.

Tonight, reflect on at least three of the opportunities you identified, whether or not you acted on them. This may entail taking note of them after the fact as it's possible you will not have recognized some without the benefit of hindsight. The intention in taking time to reflect on them is to help you become more aware of them as they are happening so you can act on these opportunities in the future.

As a way to contemplate today's mission, take a minute right now to consider this quote from Roman philosopher Seneca:

"Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for a kindness."

Remember, we want you to help spread the goodwill generated by completing the missions by reporting your activity on the Compassion Map.

YOU are just who we need to do this important, transformative work.
