Let's spread the love!


Found an interesting story posted on the Philadelphia Inquirer site about a small but growing movement on the Web to promote acts of kindness and pay-it-forward mentality.  Clearly, it's a backlash against all the negativity and mean-spiritedness that pervades the Internet (and, let's face it, society in general!) these days. 

These sites, with names such as spreadloveproject.com, , actsofkindness.com and operationnice.com, offer examples, tips and ideas for adding civility and respect back into the national dialogue. It can be as simple as offering a compliment or kind word to a stranger, or letting someone in line ahead of you, or as complex as going out of your way to help someone, with no expectation of repayment.  

So, let's all make a vow to become a little more conscious in our daily lives of this movement, and to seize upon every opportunity to "pay it forward." 

I'll start:  Have an amazing weekend!!!
