One of my favorite things to do is something so simple and that’s pay it forward. I did this one morning at Starbucks. After buying my chai tea latte (of course), I told the barista ringing up my order that I wanted to put $50 on a gift card and pay for the orders for everyone until it ran out. It was something little but one of those things that makes someones day. What inspired me to do it is that the same thing happened to me days before where a nice woman in line paid for my coffee and to return the nice gesture, I wanted to pay that kindness forward.
Whether you buy a coffee for the person behind you at Starbucks or buy the lunch of a friend who isn’t expecting it, pay it forward. No matter if it’s a big or small gesture, it will always an unexpected gesture that puts a smile on someones face.
