The Power of Pay It Forward

These random acts of kindness are pretty awesome, and they are pretty powerful, too.

This morning, I was on the receiving end of pay-it-forward kindness, and I am still basking in the glow of somebody’s anonymous gesture.

This is really the first time that something so random has happened to me like this, at least where I am aware of it (I am sure that we are all the recipients of such kindness without ever realizing it), with no expectation of reciprocity.

Has this happened to you? Or have you offered an anonymous gesture of kindness to an unsuspecting stranger? It’s awesome, isn’t it?

The power of GIVING is a great thing, and today, it has fueled me in immeasurable ways.

So: To you in the big SUV with the very cool vanity plate and the COEXIST bumper sticker, I thank you. You have empowered me today, and I am grateful.

If you are wondering about the powers of pay it forward, just watch THIS GREAT VIDEO. Now that I am one of these people (you know, symbolically) in this short 5-minute film, I’m looking forward to doing my part to keep the kindness flowing….
