Remember last week was "High Five Friday" - I gave out about 40 high fives that day!
Even to strangers and it was so fun to see peoples' faces light up when I did it. A few folks probably thought "Who is this crazy lady?" but it was worth it!
So, Day 20 on the Acts of Kindness Advent Calendar is:
PAY IT FORWARD FRIDAY!!
I. LOVE. IT.
I have done this before just randomly and it is so much fun - like I said in a previous post I think it is because sometimes the people don't even know who paid it forward!
Here's what you need to do:
"It’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."
Now go forth and pay it forward people!!
I declare it must be so.
Also please make sure you tell me about it this time.
Hearing all the different ways of paying it forward is inspiring!
