The three minute and twenty second video you are about to watch is simply amazing! I know there are a lot of people in this world that have given up on humanity, and at times I don’t blame them.
There are times where I have my doubts of the morals of others, but I always remind myself that there is good in everyone, because every living, breathing person has a heart, and the heart is always pure and good. No matter how bitter, corrupt, or even scarred a person is, the heart doesn’t get tainted by hatred or pollution.
By taking three minutes and twenty seconds of your time to watch this warm felt and inspiring video, posted by Upworthy on their Facebook wall, then shared by my cousin Laurie Cestnick…will show you that there are still plenty of lovely, untainted people still walking amongst us.
I have to tip my hat off to the young gentleman in the video you are about to watch, who goes by the name of Mason Wartmen. If Mason didn’t take action by getting some sticky notes, advise customers of the importance of the sticky notes and, saying yes to the warm-hearted customer, who wanted to pay a $1 for a slice of pizza for someone in need, there would be a lot of starving people on the streets of Philadelphia.
Thanks to Rosa’s Fresh Pizza and Mason Wartman, that isn’t the case.
By “paying it forward”, we help lift so many and embody the meaning of TEAM, Together Everyone Achieves More!
Just talking about this gets me excited, because as I’ve mentioned before, we all have the goodness in us to really make a positive change in the lives of others, this planet, and most of all ourselves. When we are kind, loving, and show compassion to ourselves, that same love, kindness and compassion radiates outward, as I mention in my blog titled “Love… Kindness… Compassion”.
By giving ourselves some tlc (tender love & care), we create the opportunity to help ourselves first, so that we can be of positive service to others. As Mahatma Ghandi said it best…
Be the change you want to see in the world.
Let’s be that change and continue this wonderful act of “paying it forward”. Start by sharing this blog and video with others, to encourage those around us to take the necessary actions of “paying it forward”.
Also, check out the Global Pay It Forward Movement. The Global Pay It Forward Movement has great “PIF” content, and the “GPIFM” app will inspire you to keep this movement strong!
The best time to start is always right now, no need to hesitate. The next time you are in a pizza shop, McDonalds, Subway, Tim Hortons or any other establishment that serves food, if you can, provide a little extra cash to the cashier and make sure to emphasize it’s for the next person who is in need of some food. If the cashier or manager says “no”, smile, send them love silently, and inform them of the “pay it forward movement”…
Everything is significant… Everything matters!
Enough reading! Feel free to watch the video provided below, and get inspired and let your #love, #kindness and #compassion shine!
It’s time for us as a people to start making some changes. Let’s change the way we eat, let’s change the way we live, and let’s change the way we treat each other.
