Pay It Forward - Thankfully

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Indy NE 317-290-7775 www.marchantteam.com

Thank YouOnce when my husband and I were dating…he said to me (with confidence), “honey, the world doesn’t revolve around you”.   And my response (said with equal confidence), “sure it does and if you get a little closer to me, it will revolve around you too!”   And so, he began to teach me to think more about others…big task since I was the baby of my family and spoiled rotten.

Improvements have been made for sure but still plenty of room for more.  Dan and Amy Shuman wrote a post titled “Are you Turning Off Your Subscribers” that got me thinking and more importantly acting.

Today, I went through and sent a personal email to several of my newest subscribers.  If they think I’m worth subscribing to, then it should be worth it to me to acknowledge that vote of confidence.

Wednesday I went to my quarterly Bible Study Fellowship luncheon hosted by one of our peeps in the group.  And I just sent her a hand written note thanking her for hosting (Lord knows, I don’t want to have to clean and bake!)

On Thursday, it snowed a bunch here in Indy and my husband ALWAYS has to shovel.  But I was done with my tasks for the day at about 4:00 and was able to shovel 75% of the driveway before he got home.  He was so thankful.

Paying it forward by just saying thank you is easy and available every day.  While I am still hoping to post a great story with a great impact…I am thankful that I have an opportunity every day to pay it forward even in a small way.

More often than not it will be the simple gestures that people will remember, long after all the hoopla has disappeared.  A "Thank You" card, verbal acknowledgement, or good deed are often enough to make all the difference.
