A Little About Me

I'm Kala.. Yes there's no Y in my name. Mom says it's because she didn't want me to have a hard time writing it in kindergarten.. Silly I know but that's Mom. I grew up in the small town of Nokomis as the youngest of 3 other siblings Shane, Michael and Mindy. The song American Honey relates most to my life... "She grew up on the side of the road, where the church bells ring and strong love grows, she grew up good, she grew up slow, like American Honey" I am going to be sharing my stories of the past present and what I hope to accomplish in my future. I am a very genuine girl and pray and hope my life in the future brings me happiness and joy and still be the genuine person I am... Life Is Short Lets Make The Best Of It!!!

January's Act of Kindness

Have you ever planned something and been so disappointed that your plans fall through and you just wish that they would turn out the way you've planned?

Ok so we all have... But.... Has this happened to you on your 21st birthday?
Most Likely NO, It didn't or wont.

I was keeping an eye on a friend of mines daughters Facebook page. You know, those Facebook friends you have that you don't exactly know? Well she was one of them.

I kept seeing her post about her 21st birthday and she was so excited she was going to get herself a party bus and invite all of her friends to help her celebrate. All was going great she had it all planned everyone was set to go until, her post the week before her bus.

"8 people have backed out of the party bus if I don't get at least 3 people for sure to come the dreams of a party bus will be gone forever" HAHA funny I know.. But, I thought to myself, "perfect time to send a stranger a birthday gift" so I sent her a message on Facebook of course and it started out as... This is insanely random and by the end you will think this girl is crazy.

I ended up getting her address and sending her a birthday card with some money in it towards her bus! =]
She had a fabulous time and earned her very first hangover! =]

My List for 2013

So as I said I want to do all these random acts! Here are just a few that I have thought of! As I cross them off my list I am planning on writing about it! They may be short, they may be long but most importantly they are all going to be random and not planned at all.

1. Buy someones groceries.

2. Send someone in need some flowers.

3. Get a stranger a birthday gift.

4. Write a letter to Ellen about Ellen!

5. Get my mom a "Pamper Mom" day... Not just for Mothers day or Birthday!

6. Buy someones Gas.

7. Donate my time at a charity event/drive.

8. Give a child with cancer a present.

9. Help at an animal shelter.

10. Pay someones phone bill. (Not My Own)

These are just some general ideas to bring kindness into the world. It hopefully will mean something to someone! They say what goes around comes around. Not necessarily for my own sake but I hope what I send around will be coming around to someone else in need!

Spread a little love today!
Be Kind To One Another!

A better me in 20 13

     Well as you notice the title looks like "it's wrong" really it's not! 
Twenty Thirteen is spaced so it is said as Twenty-Thirteen. I know I can be and I am a bit of a dork! =] But it gives me qualities and character that most people wouldn't bring up about themselves. But heck, I seriously don't mind a bit!

Okay So in 20 13 I am setting a few "Things-To-Do" for myself! These are NOT resolutions! Nor are they goals! They are.. TO-DO's and they are a must for me!

You know the commercial "Doing the right thing" it's an insurance commercial for Liberty Mutual. It starts out with one person doing a kind random act while another is watching. That person then goes on to do a random act of kindness and so and on so on. The end of the commercial it starts back at the beginning where it all started. 

Imagine if we, as humans, did this same sort of thing. Not something to strive for in any of our busy schedules but think about it. One small act of random kindness can turn into a chain of random acts of kindness.

We have all read the Wal-Mart stories where the single father doesn't have enough money to buy the groceries as the little children are in the cart waiting and the person behind pays for what they don't have. What we see with our eyes is a kind an selfless act. Lets face it this world is evil and full of hate! Lets bring the love back. What we don't see is that strong father breaking down in his beat up clunker car with his baby in the car seat as he sheds a tear down his face. He just had a 'love beat' in his heart.

I say two things at the end of a blog.. Thank you and God Bless, and I mean each of those things. But what I haven't said that I often say in person is the famous Ellen Degeneres quote, "Be kind to one another" and I'm from now on going to say that as well in my little writings that I enjoy doing! Putting my thoughts and feelings into words and paragraphs. 

So... for my "Better Me in 20 13" I am putting together a list of things that I want to do. Randomly! Not planned, not done on a specific date but just, to do! For others! I'm prepping myself for no thank you's and for some possible rude lash outs, but most of all, I am hoping for nothing in return! Just maybe a simple smile, and to just make someones day! I want to start that chain of random acts! I want to put a little bit more love into the world. Now I'm not saying I want to completely and totally change the nation. Because one voice can't do that, even though our parents have always told us... 'You can change the world" well I don't believe thats true, but what I do believe is we can make it a better place. 

What do you plan to do with 20 13 or 2k13? 

As always, thank you for reading and God bless!
Be Kind to One Another! 

Out of Blog-Coma! 2013

Well I have not blogged in quite some time! A year at least it looks like. So instead of pasting each lame blog to Facebook or Twitter, which by the way the Tweet world is something I'm not exactly "up to par" with! I am just going to write whenever and about whatever I feel like then down the road... If someone reads what they like great! If not, it's just my little journal! Because You know, the internet, when something is put on it.. It's there, longer than forever! =]

So basic update! I should have kept bogging... But clearly, did not! I have traveled, loved, cried, worked, partied and basically grew up in the last year! "I'm just an older version of my younger self"Basically an old soul!

I have a big girl job now! Wooh Hooh! Hey it's exciting when my generation is the laziest generation in history! That is excited that a 23 year old was very excited to be working full time for a great business.

I am the Office Administrator for a company called MarkNet Alliance, fancy huh? No, the name is! It's basic secretarial stuff! But, it's fun! I also get to plan trips and go on them as well. My work family is fantastic! Honestly, I'm not saying that in hopes of them reading this someday, they really are just great! Very laid back and trust me I don't take that for granted! It's much nicer walking in feeling relaxed than having to be very uptight the entire time.

The auction world is growing friends. Thats why I feel content where I am today! =]

This one was just a short update of whats going on with me! I will get more detailed in blogs to come! Hope my 3 Readers enjoy! Hehe! Maybe by the end of this years project I will have more! =] But if not a journal is still fine to have!

Be Kind To One Another Everyone!
