Thanks to Mitch’s company, Valassis, for sending out an email informing their employees that tomorrow is National Pay it Forward Day. This is a holiday that focuses on passing kindness around. That’s a holiday that certainly should be practiced by ALL. How we partake in this celebration is quite simple; You do something kind or generous for someone who will then simply repay the kindness by passing it forward to another individual. The goal is to form a ripple effect that can spread across the universe. While it is recommended that you can do something m like pay for someone’s coffee or for the person behind you at a toll you can also do things that don’t cost a cent. A simple gesture like letting someone get in front of you at the grocery store, or in traffic can go a long way, especially for someone that is in a rush. If someone says “thank you,” for your kindness or generosity, tell them no thanks needed, just pass it forward.
Sure, it would be nice to think that everyone could live this way every day, but sadly that’s not everyone’s reality. One day, however, could be the start of a revolution. I wanted to post this today to give you some time to mull over the many small (and possibly big) ways you can take part in the giving, tomorrow. Please feel free to share what your thinking.* As you move through your today, keep in mind that it’s never to early to start celebrating a holiday, and practice makes perfect!
