As mentors you are paying forward every day. It's a BIG thing. You know that and so do I! My own kids want to do the BIG things however; sometimes our kids always don't realize the impact of the small things. It’s often the little things that can make a difference in a life.
Coming up: "Pay It Forward Day is a global initiative that exists to make a difference by creating a huge ripple of kindness felt across the world. We believe that small acts, when multiplied by millions of people can literally change the world for the better — and on April 28th we’ll set out to prove it! For this year’s international Pay it Forward Day (PIFD) we are aiming to inspire over 10 million acts of kindness around the world. Imagine the difference that would make! Join us in paying it forward, and help spread the word about this important day!" Pay it forward
So what can we teach our kids to do? What can they see US do to encourage and empower them to go forward and BE the change? My kids and I sat down and made this list: Buy someone a cup of coffee Hold the door for someone Smile and say hello to someone you do not know Sit by someone who is alone Leave a kind note for a friend Pay for the person behind you in the drive through Donate to a cause you love
Add to this list! Share with us what you did, it is amazing what the power of a small act of kindness is on your own soul.
