I recently received and accepted an invitation from a friend to participate in a movement entitled, Pay-It-Forward 2013. Here’s how it works: after receiving the original invitation, I posted a status to my Facebook page indicating that the first 10 people to comment on my status would receive from me, sometime this year, a personal handwritten note with a small gift attached. The gift and its arrival date will remain a surprise until it’s received by the recipient. The caveat… each recipient had to commit to paying it forward by extending an invitation and gift to others.
Despite any negativity we face in today’s society, we can make a positive difference. Paying it forward presents an opportunity to make someone’s day — whether you know them personally or not — by blessing them with a random act of kindness.
I’m asking you to spread the word and the movement, because everyone appreciates being the recipient of an unexpected act of kindness.
Remember, the seeds that we plant today blossom as fruit tomorrow. So pay it forward in 2013!
Until Next Time,
