Maybe its just me being silly but it seems like there's something special about having a calendar date of 11-11-11. Sure, we've had special dates every year since the millenium, but none with all the same numbers. (I know, if you write it as 11/11/2011 then its not all the same numbers...but this is as close as it gets.)
Anyway, I think its pretty neat and so, to observe the once-every-100-years-occurrence, I plan to watch for ways to be a help and a blessing (anonymously, if possible) to my friends, family, coworkers...anyone I encounter during my day.
We usually go through our days in "automatic" mode, entrenched in our routine ways of thinking, feeling, working, talking and interacting. I wonder what will happen as I consciously try to think and act more positively and kindly, searching first for the good instead of knee-jerk-reacting to the bad. I think its worth the effort.
