Pay it forward. Think about all the people who helped you when you needed a hand. The Airlines Security Guard who held your squirming toddler while you stowed away the stroller. The Lady who gave you a hand when you slipped in the pond. The Teacher who tied your shoe laces after you scraped your knee. People who encouraged you and helped you back up and accepted you as you are.

Sometimes we can’t pay their kindness back to them. But we can acknowledge what they have done for us and pay the kindness forward. To someone who may need it. With a compliment. A helping hand. A kind word. A little support.

Who in turn may pay it forward too.
