Had Friday off and decided to do some shopping and head for the Beach. I found Rye Harbor State Park in NH wasn't very busy. Yeah! As I was walking along the beach I found an old sea snail shell. It was very thick and weathered - had real character. A bit further on I gave it to a woman who was picking up shells. She was very pleased, said she'd grown up on that beach.
This got me to thinking was I starting a Play it Forward good deed chain or was I continuing a chain. I'd interacted with only 5 people so far. I'd stopped for coffee and 2 older Teens had cheerfully held open the door and allowed me to get to the counter ahead of them. The clerk gave me a great smile and courteous service. On my way out an older gentleman opened the door for me and wished me a great day. I then went into a craft store that was holding a 50% off sale in preperation for moving. The owner waited on me and advised me that an item that I was purchasing might not be what I really wanted. Saved me $2.00 on that item and $66 overall. So I think I was continuiing a play it forward smile/good deed chain. If fact I had more credids to pass forward or store for a rainy day!
Very simple actions can have momentous affects.
Remember to Smile!! Even if it is only to yourself in the mirror.
