Day 20: Pay it Forward

I did this! 97

Posted on December 20, 2013

Acts of Kindness - Pay it ForwardIt’s Friday again and after a long week, I’m ready for a little fun! How about you? 

Today, we’re going to pay it forward and maybe even start a chain reaction of good deeds. We all have someone in the past to whom we owe a debt of gratitude, but never managed to thank. Rather than paying them back, I want you to pay if forward to someone else.

Here’s an example of how to do it: When you’re getting your morning coffee, tell the barista (or drive-through attendant) that in addition to buying your own coffee, you’d like to perform an act of kindness and pay for next the person behind you. The recipient will feel lucky and here's the beauty of it, the barista will likely feel lucky to be involved too.

If you’re a shy bear like me, you can pay it forward anonymously like these kindness ambassadors have done:
