Some of you may have heard of the phrase pay it forward. The message it carries is, if you’ve been given a good break, give a break to someone else. This is a great virtue to hold in a time when it’s easy to fail to recognize your own good breaks and to feel betrayed by life in the face of good breaks others seem to be getting.
This day, resolve that you will not try to pay someone back who has helped you. Rather, give a good break to someone you barely know or don’t know. The kindest thing in the world you can do is help someone feel the warmth of being cared for unconditionally. Today, show someone you hope to help them be a better someone for no other reason than they matter in this world.
