People CAN be nice!

As much as I am an optimist, sometimes I admit finding it hard to see the “good in society” these days…

This weekend I saw goodness first hand.

A (previously unknown) neighbour, who parks two car spaces away from me in my underground parking garage left a note on my car window to call him. When I did, he revealed he found a wallet on the roof of my car, with $1,300 in it and wanted to return it to its rightful owner.

I was shocked at all the steps he had taken to find out who it belonged to. We found out that it belonged to the person who rents my second car space… It took +/-10 calls to reunite the wallet to its rightful owner*, demonstrating there are still nice people out there!

* As it turns out, the wallet belonged to a lawyer and the $1,300 were donations he was to deposit in a charity’s account… So you see, when you do good, you DO get rewarded!

I am a firm believer in the Law Of Attraction and the principle of “paying it forward”.

Just remember: Your acts of kindness, generosity never go unnoticed and even if they do – do them anyway. The world will be a better place for it.

Pay it forward

Thank you note - paying it forward

I think we have all heard the expression – pay it forward – be nice to someone without any expectation of reciprocation and at some point in the future, someone else will do the same for you.

I saw this note on our building’s bulletin board and thought it was sweet for someone to be kind and purchase the macaroons, but then the recipient wanted to publicly (yet anonymously) thank him/her.

It made my day to realise that there are still a lot of really, nice, kind, generous people in the world!

Have a fabulous day and “pay it forward” in your own way.
