i was just wondering how many people out there believe in paying things forward. for example if someone does something nice for you or gives you something will you pay it forward when you can or will you just let it go .i am a big believer in paying things forward.

Yes I am a big believer in paying it forward or as I like to call it "earning" Karma :). Although I am not a spiritual person, I do like the idea of Karma. If everyone paid it forward the world would be a better place for everyone. Thats why we should all strive to do it.

that makes two of us i like to pay things forward and hope that others do the same as well because the more people that pass it on the better the world would be.

Absolutely! I totally believe in paying it forward! Everyone loves to receive, even if it's a just a kind word or being offered to move to the head of the line at a store. We also feel good about ourselves when we give. So if everyone has something nice or special done for them or give something to them, they should return that by doing something special for someone else. I believe the world would be a much happier place if we all gave... and appreciated when we received.

i know what you mean people like to get nice things or have nice things done for them so when you get a chance you should pay it forward or pass it on and hope they will do the same when they get a chance to the more the better.

I believe in paying it forward i believe that if you put positive energy into the cosmos the cosmos will reward you will positive things whenever I do something good for someone else and they ask "how can I repay you" I tell them they can simply pay it forward I think the global society has forgotten the definition of the word "generosity" if we all start paying it forward humanity can be saved

i know what you mean i try to do nice things for people when i can so i guess thats why some times nice things happen to me so i will just pay some thing forward again. i do wish every one believed in paying it forward it would make this place a better one.

Yes I do. I helped a few people years ago when I was in a better place financially. And now that I am struggling I have gotten some help from my good deeds then. I think if everyone in the world would do one small kind thing for someone and tell them to pass it on,pay it forward the world would be a wonderful place.

I totally agree with you psychotaz206!! I think that if someone takes the time out of their way to be nice to you in whatever form, you should definitely do the same for someone else. It not only keeps the good and positive flow but it really makes you feel good, it is a high like no other to know that you made a differance in someones life, no matter how big or small the act was. We lead by example, especially to our children and it is a good way to teach them to think of other people's need before themselves. I like to use the term as well when I am asked how someone can return the favor, I simply say, just pay it forward my friend. I unfortunately have one regret of not paying something forward, from years ago, and it to this day, it really bothers me. I like to compare it to karma, what comes around goes around, we all have the control of what fortune or misfortune is headed our way.

that my point i just wish everyone else felt that way as well but it onely takes a few to get thinks going so i hope that others will start doing nice things for someone and that way it is passed on we are teaching our children how to do that infact we even showed them the movie and they knew what i was talking about after watching it.
