Paying It Forward!

Updated: Mar 9

How can we make a difference in the world? What impact can we have?


Sometimes the smallest action can have a significant, meaningful reaction. One of my favorite quotes from Mother Teresa is:


"Kind Words may be short and easy...but their Echoes are Truly ENDLESS!"


Paying it forward can mean many things! Complimenting someone. Holding the door for someone. Paying the bill for the person behind you in the drive-through line so that they don't even know about your kindness until you've already driven away.


According to the Australian Institute of Family Counseling (AIFC), making others feel good with kindness has a profound effect on our own mental and physiological health. It helps us become happier and compassionate towards others. It can boost our immune system, slow down aging, elevate our self esteem and improve blood pressure.


I've always been proud to be a Midwesterner. We are known throughout the rest of the country (and by some people in other countries!) as being kind. Let's all think about that today...and every day! Let's be inspired to do something kind and PAY IT FORWARD! You never know whose life you will effect...and change...maybe OUR OWN!


Message us back with something YOU have done to Pay It Forward!
