Pay it forward is a book written by Catherine Ryan Hyde which was then made into a film. What began as a work of fiction has now become a real-life, worldwide, social movement.
It begins with doing a favour for someone without any expectation of being paid back. The recipient of that favour then does a good turn for someone else: ideally for three other people. The unconditional favours can be large or small. It doesn’t have to be a big thing. It can just seem that way, depending who you do it for.
One of the most important things to remember about Paying it Forward is that it is done with a selfless spirit. This means you help another person (even a stranger) without expecting payment or good deeds in return. As far as the receiver of the money, gift, or good deed is concerned, he or she is only told to – Pay it forward.
Spread the love. The world can seem like an unfriendly, threatening place sometimes but we can all make a positive difference in the world. One way is to practice Paying it Forward.
One act of kindness can radiate out into the world and create a wave of love and kindness.
Start a revolution – it begins with you! When someone does you a favour – don’t pay it back – Pay it forward.
Happy days 🙂
