Pay It Forward: Hopping and Daises!

We're so happy to have everyone who's here for the Seeing Beautiful in the Moment blog hop! Link up and see beautiful with others! We can't wait to visit you and be inspired! We're always looking for new blogs to follow who offer glimpses of seeing and creating more beautiful in the world - that's what we're here for, right?

So, if you're a blogger, you can Pay It Forward this weekend by hopping and making new friends by leaving kindness on their blog.

Whether you're a blogger or not you can pay it forward this weekend with flowers. Last week many of you will remember we featured sweet Kristin Traina's idea to Pay It Forward on her birthday with a random act of kindness for every year of her life. Twenty-two random acts of kindness later, we're still completely inspired. We were with her to witness three of the acts of kindness. She walked into a coffee shop with three bundles of daisies. She separated the daises and gave one to every person in the coffee shop. What I couldn't get over were the expressions on everyone's faces. They lit up. The stopped hammering away on their computer on smiled. Some questioned outl oud - Why in the world a flower for me? What are you doing this for? She smiled and said, "Just because." as she handed happiness to another.

So, we were thinking, what if the See Beautiful community just handed out flowers, for no reason at all. What if we offered something beautiful to a stranger for a simple bright spot in their day? Yes. We're off to buy daises and hand them out. Happy smiles, hopping, and paying it forward to all.

  5. That's a beautiful post - there is so much beauty around us it's easy to take it for granted…. My Mum loves to think about the simple act of passing on a smile and seeing how people light up and smile back - I also like to wag at people cos it makes them smile :)

    Hope you're having a fun day :) 

    Your pal Snoopy :)
