While reviewing for this finals week, I spare some time to watch random movie. The movie “Pay it Forward” is interesting enough to distract me from studying. The story revolves around the idea of a 7th grader on the assignment given by his social studies teacher: how can you change the world. Pay it forward was his response.
Paying it forward is simply doing a favor to people who really needs help. You do something good without expecting anything in return but for them to pay it forward to three more people each. It is an intricate web of connection and interaction of doing something positive for others. Until you will realize that the goodness you’ve done to someone may return to you through kindness from another random stranger.
The idea may be too idealistic for this complex world but we can still perform it. This one simple act of kindness can spark a revolution of good deeds. You may be one person in the world but you can make an impact to another person’s life.
Utopian? Maybe. But why not give it a try.
