Paying It Forward With Gratitude
After reading The Secret about a year ago and now The Power I learned a valuable lesson on happiness. You must give of yourself to others and feel the gratitude while giving to receive true happiness.
I was always the person who sees the glass half full so It wasn’t too much of a stretch for me to understand and live the law of attraction. I would always try and do something nice for someone else, make them feel special, etc…
What I didn’t realize is by doing this and really paying attention to my thoughts and feelings as I’m paying it forward that I would reap the benefits 100 times over! I never expected that each and every time I do something nice for someone in any way, shape, or form that the very same day it would come back to me! Sometimes in the same way I gave to someone just minutes before!
Now I wake up every day so extremely grateful for this gift I received from the wonderful books I read. When I pay it forward, I get it back to me… I feel so grateful and happy that I’ve made someone’s day and the next thing I know I’m grateful and happy for someone making my day a bit more special….. I now wake up each and every day looking for ways to “Pay it Forward”. It’s heartwarming, fun and I feel such peace in my life now.
I feel like this is what I was meant to do. Make others feel special about themselves.
