We Asked: How do you pay it forward?
I am a proponent of paying it forward, and I deeply believe that when I do, I benefit more than anyone else, so it’s a win–win. I try to cover my bases when choosing how I do this. I have some pet projects I enjoy giving to, but I also like to do things for entities that are new to me. I know that whatever goes outward eventually comes back to me, sometimes in unexpected ways. We are all connected, and deep down want the same general things from life. We are stronger together and can create a very strong energy when we all pay it forward. I also believe that when we stretch ourselves beyond what is comfortable, we reap great rewards of many sorts, and I try to remind myself of this.
