Pay It Forward

Pay It Forward!

The Kindness Of Strangers

This is a great way to get your mind off your own problems! It may sound weird, but it is the times when we are struggling the most that we should reach out and help others.

I have experienced this type of kindness before and I must say, nothing restores your faith and hope in humanity more during those times of need. Your kindness may be exactly what that person needs to keep pushing forward and believing things could get better.

An Answer To Our Problems

Maybe it is. Whether you believe in God, Karma or Science ~ what comes around goes around ~ it seems to be a natural law of the universe. Sadly enough many people don’t treat others as they would like to be treated. I think we have a responsibility though to always pay it forward.

I don’t normally write much about this (in an effort to do things quietly and never toot our own horn) but when I was at my lowest last week (financially and while still living in a hotel) I still managed to buy a homeless man lunch, helped a couple people take care of their errands and found time to counsel another survivor.

I think helping people is just a way of life, or at least it should be, and we should never quit doing those things just because we stumble or fall ourselves (although, the ways we can help others might change due to our own situation.)

Soul Seeds…

The point isn’t to make ourselves feel good, but to help change our perspective. It is much too easy to become totally consumed and self absorbed with our own struggles, and this is perhaps the best way to get our minds off everything, including ourselves. After all, God seems to have a real way of working out the problems once we quit trying to figure them out on or own and learn to focus on something else. So, step back and get out of His way by helping someone else today! Pay It Forward

    Truly we reap what we sow. Sometimes it takes a while but it does keep us looking off our own problems.

    This is so beautifully written…it brought to mind a time this last year when I was in a very low place. A stranger who was ahead of me in a drive thru line at a Taco Bell paid for my order before driving away. That small act, costing a stranger less than five dollars, made a world of difference to me.
