A not very timely note

This was a blog I once wrote during my high school and early college years. I keep it around for nostalgic purposes, but it is quite obviously no longer updated. I am looking to make a more professional blog presence in the future, but I still like to look at where I was mentally at certain points in time.

"Genorosity" by G.

You do a great service when you give to others in need. Generosity is something that represents our better side; showing kindness. But working at a shelter or dropping a few coins into a poor man's hand isn't the only way to show your generosity. Now I've seen this movie a few times, but it took me a while to realize that a damn good idea it is; that it really could work. Pay it Forward presents the idea that you help out three different people in a big way; the only thing you ask in return is for them to do the same thing; to Pay it Forward. There is actually a real foundation for the Pay it Forward idea; the link is on this blog, or you can click here. This is a amazing expression of generosity, but just imagine if everyone tried to do it. Kindness and Goodwill would be spread everywhere; ordinary people's lives can be changed for the better. So try it out. Help someone who fell down in the hall. Give that extra quarter if the guy in front of you doesn't have enough. That warm fuzzy feeling you get inside by showing kindness; it makes you more complete. Some people say that we start out evil or we start out good. I think we start out blank. By showing kindness, you make yourself, and the people you help, become just a bit better.

I totally have to agree on that.
Everything goes by choices and opinions. I personally think a little generosity goes a long way.

Pay it Forward!
