Paying it Forward. It's a good concept. I helps us remember good things in life and spreading those good things around. As they say in Care-A-Lot, sweetness goes a long way if you're willing to share.
So it all started with C (well maybe not "all"), and L was so kind as to choose all her commenters as "winners" so here I am in the Pay it Forward chain. And I'm so glad to be because now I get the chance to find out what makes my readers happy and get/give a little bit of happiness in return.
But I'm going to mix it up a little. After almost a week of single parenting (with the help of my brother, sister in law, and niece), I'm thinking of the things I (try to) do to me a better person. And for me, the "better" involves more patience, more calmness, more understanding, less guilt. Appreciating the good little things and letting go of bad little things. It's work, and I'm working on it.
And I want to know how other people better themselves as well. So tell me how you better yourself (and therefore the world) and I will select three (3) people to receive a little reward from me...
Here's how it works:
1. You must comment on this post. The comment must include at least one method in which you better yourself.
2. If you are a winner, I ask that you pay-it-forward however you'd like: in-person, online, in writing, whatever...just commit to doing something nice for three people in the spirit of paying-it-forward. I will not check up on you (bettering myself #392: no nagging). However, if you don't intend to pay it forward, please don't play.
3. If selected to pay-it-forward, you must trust me enough to send me your address (I'll ask for it later - don't post it in the comments). If you don't trust me enough to send me your address, you'll just be the recipient of good vibes that I will mentally send your way. And an honorable mention in the blogosphere.
So, if you want to participate, then answer this question... What is something you do that makes you a better person?
