Paying it Forward.
We hear the term all the time and it’s usually associated with doing a good deed for someone who then, in turn, does a good deed for the next person they encounter. We often hear it associated with monetary giving, like buying the coffee of the person behind you in line.
But Paying it Forward is so much more than that. It’s not something you pull out of your wallet…it’s an attitude and philosophy tucked firmly into your heart. And the great thing about paying it forward, is that it doesn’t take much to make someone’s day just a little brighter:
It’s listening to a friend and giving support.
It’s “No, you go first.”
It’s giving heartfelt praise and compliments.
It’s holding open a door.
It’s letting go of grudges.
It’s being patient.
It’s giving a smile to someone who is having a hard time finding theirs.
It’s about making the world a better place by helping the people in it.
“We can do no great things, only small things with great love.” ~Mother Teresa
