Hey let's make today "Pay It Forward Day"!
Last month, my friend Ginny was the recipient of a random act of kindness at Starbucks.
Today I read a news article about a 40-minute pay-it-forward episode at another Starbucks.
Do you have a place you go for coffee or breakfast? If you can't afford to pay for the person behind you, can you kick in a couple of bucks?
Spend the day looking for opportunities to surprise and delight the people around you. It's amazing how you can bring joy in simple ways to a person and, in turn, they do the right thing and pay it forward to the next.
Ripples in a pond. This is how we spread change.
