This time of year nudges the generosity in many. So I’m playing on that.
When you go through a coffee shop line , fast food line, grocery line or… what if you commit to Paying it Forward?
Whether it’s $1.00, $5.00 or whatever ~ what if, at some point in the coming week you choose to pay the cashier some amount of your purchase toward the purchase of the person behind you in line ~ simply requesting that they also Pay it Forward in a way that works for them?
What harm could it do?
Lemme know how it works for you. Tell us here and spread the Pay it Forward news.

I have paid tolls forward for years when traveling. Very funny to see how people react….most are dumbfounded!
Two weeks ago, I “paid forward” a tip for a waitress. The folks in the other booth had left a cell phone and the waitress ran out to the car to give it to them. The person barely said thank you. When I left my tip, I left double what was expected and thanked the waitress for what she did. She was speechless.
And last week when I had to dry my clothes at the laundromat because my dryer was on the fritz, the man working there told me which dryers were good to use. When I only had to use half the change I intended, I gave him the rest and thanked him for his help. I received the biggest smile I have seen in a long time as a thank you. Twelve quarters really didn’t make much a difference to me, but it sure did seem to brighten the man’s day. And he was really shocked that I thanked him.
So, I will work on the challenge this week and report back. Paying it forward really leaves me feeling rather good!
