A few months ago, my friend posted about Paying it Forward, Please. As I read her post, it reminded me of the time I witnessed a disheveled man (2 people in front of me) unable to pay his grocery bill. The woman behind him (1 in front of me) dropped a $20. She tapped him on the shoulder and said, “I think you dropped this.” Her gesture was so wonderful, it stayed with me.
Then a month ago, I saw a young couple’s car break down in the middle of a busy intersection. During rush hour. I waited for the honking to begin. It didn’t. Instead, I saw 2 people jump from their cars to help push the vehicle onto a side street and others wait patiently. No honking.
We live in a society where we are quick to blame and complain, but do we take the time to compliment and help?
Let’s try to. Let’s vow to focus on the positive. Let’s try to practice random acts of kindness.
Positive gestures big and small count.
Possibilities are endless. Let’s give this movement a big push.
Let’s Pay it Forward.
