It’s the most wonderful time of the year.
It can be the most stressful time of the year.
We are running around, trying to get things done, trying to create a perfect holiday, that we can get lost.
And we can be abrupt, forgetful, selfish.
So, for my Pay It Forward act, I decided to do multiple little acts in hopes of spreading some good will.
Through out the course of this month, I decided to return abandoned carts,
pick up trash (One of MANY coffee cups strewn in the parking lots),
hold open doors for “busy” shoppers, and let those that “huffed and puffed” go in front of me at the check out line.
And one of those huffers and puffers? Yeah, she turned to thank me as “she was so busy and running around.” I bit my cheek so as not to respond, so is everyone else.
Instead I said, “No problem. I’m performing random acts of kindness in hopes others will too.”
Right away she responded, “Like a Pay it forward? I like it.”
Hopefully she liked it enough to Pay It Forward herself.
What did you end up doing this past month?
And if you can’t make it this month, link-up next month.
We’ll be Paying It Forward again January 7.
