“Sail beyond the horizon; fly higher than you ever thought possible; magnify your existence by helping others; be kind to people and animals of all shapes and sizes; be true to what you value most; shine your light on the world; and be the person you were born to be.” Blake Beattie
Here are some super easy and creative ways to pay it forward on a daily basis on any budget. I hope some of these pictures and ideas inspire you.
Leave flowers anywhere; on cars, at bus stops...
Handwritten notes can make anyone stop and smile.
Leave random bills and coins; redbox, gas stations or on the street.
Gift cards are fun and easy and there are tons to chose from.
Randomly pay for the person behind you or next to you.
Hand out water bottles. Or leave coins at a meter.
If you have more ideas, feel free to send them our way or post them up in Instagram. Tag #starfishstories or #deap. You can also download my Starfish Story Letter on the side of my blog to leave for people whenever you decide to pay for the person behind you.
“And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.” -Nelson Mandela
