After work, after dinner, as I contemplated what my fun thing might be today, I perused my Facebook feed when something jumped right out at me.
“2013 Creative Pay-It-Forward: The first five people to comment on this status will receive from me, sometime in the next calendar year, a gift – perhaps a book, or baked goods, or a candle, or something handmade – a surprise! There will likely be no warning and it will happen whenever the mood strikes me. The catch? Those five people must make the same offer in their FB status.”
I immediately left a comment, letting my friend know that I was in, and this would be part of the Year of Fun. Look for my post in the next 24 hours.
Lately, because of all the love I’ve received from writing this blog, I’ve been really in to the idea of paying it forward. That’s what I’m hoping to do in a larger way with the Arthritis Walk and in a smaller way with this. I hope it catches on. Perhaps a world of doing good and being considerate is the world shift the Mayans predicted?
I received a $40.00 gift this Christmas and 20 of it was to be payed forward! I bought 3 special books called the Secret, which has helped me deal with some health issues and to gain a more positive outlook…. very interesting book. Anyway, I will give these book away to those I feel are in need and really struggling (will probably be patients of mine). Plan on paying it forward for the rest of my life…. succch a simple thing. I love your idea! robin edwards
