I needed an emotional boost today… just a little something to make me feel of value and worth… So, I bought the Starbucks coffee for the woman in the drive thru. I was in the store so I could buy a decadent pastry.
By the time I left, everyone was happy and up beat… it seems that my purchase effected my cashier, the cashier at the drive thru, the barista (gal that makes the coffee), the guy in front of me in line, the guy behind me in line as well as the manager of the Starbuck. Who knew the price of a coffee could cause that much happiness???
So the cashier asks… what do you want me to tell her? I said, “Tell her to pay it forward” and then had to tell the gal what Pay it Forward meant…
So when I left, lots of people were smiling and waving good bye and telling me to have a nice day… and I’ve mostly had one. So there you go…
So… go give yourself a boost… it doesn’t have to be buying someone’s coffee… maybe it’s something else… but do something nice that’s totally and completely unexpected… I’ll bet you’ll find that it not only makes your day, but their day and others too!
