I’ve had mixed feeling about the whole pay it forward movement. Don’t get me wrong: I LOVE the idea of doing kind deeds for strangers. I enjoy the unexpected show of goodwill and kindness that I can plop into someone’s day. But when you get into the weird showiness of posting about it on social media or telling people about it…I don’t know. It feels disingenuous. It takes the beauty out of it a little. But here I am, the girl that’s about to tell you how I paid it forward recently.
