Pay It Forward: A Little More "Happy"

A few years ago a beautiful woman coined the term "a happy" for out-of-the-blue gifts (or "happy's") she would give to people. If you were the recipient, you didn't expect it, though it most certainly made you feel loved. While shopping, if she noticed something that made her think of someone else, "a happy" was discovered. Many "happy" recipients started doing the same thing in a "Pay It Forward" sort of movement. "A Happy" doesn't have to cost money. It could be the simple act of leaving a "thinking about you" or "have a great day" post-it note message on a co-worker's door or picking flowers from your yard for a friend or neighbor. It could mean leaving a "thank you" note in your mailbox for your postal worker, or leaving a little extra tip for your server when you're out to eat.

You see, a beautiful thing happens during the act of giving "a happy," the giver feels it, happy that is.

In the act of giving, one might see a little more beautifully. And when one receives, it is a truly happy feeling.

A little "happy" is a great way to See Beautiful.
