I have been doing a lot of reflection lately on where I have been and where my life is headed. I think it is a very important task that we should do often, especially when we feel like our lives are out of balance.
I went to one of my favourite places and sat down, away from people and just let my head decipher 2017.
Surprisingly, I had a fairly good year. My partner and I are happy as ever, I think the older we get the more we become best friends. I am very grateful for that. We have a roof over our heads, we get to eat everyday. Our physical health eventhough there has been some changes last year, it is for the most part under control.
We both work incredibly hard. Our work ethics are very strong. We are loyal friends and love helping others, even strangers.
Reflection for me then turned to how I can payback what I am lucky enough to have. I came up with paying it forward, randomly paying for a strangers coffee, and saying hello to anyone that seems sad and could use a listening ear.
2018 for me is going to be there year that Jenny gives to others. A smile, a coffee, a listening ear, help with lifting, opening a door for some, even just giving random strangers a big smile and say hello.
This is what I will be doing. Feel free to jump on board!!
I would love to hear about your stories where you paid it forward in some way. Could help me out with other ideas!
