PAY IT FORWARD FRIDAY- November 8th, 2013

November 8th, 2013 PAY IT FORWARD FRIDAYS Act of Kindness

Encourage a Stranger

We all have bad days, we all have down times and periods in our lives where things just seem to never go our way. It is during these times a word of encouragement can go a long way. Sometimes it comes from a loved one or a friend but sometimes that encouragement can come from a total stranger and the strange thing is….sometimes the encouragement from a stranger goes a lot further than from a loved one.

So today I am asking you to encourage a stranger or even someone you don’t know very well. I will even take it a step further this week and ask that you encourage a stranger I am going to encourage. His name is Aaron. He is the son of a facebook friend of mine. He has found himself in the middle of a hard time right now and is currently serving a sentence in prison. I do not know how long, I do not know why all I know is that he is going through a tough time and with the holidays close at hand he is growing more and more discouraged. So with your help maybe we can send him some encouragement so he can make it through this tough time in his life.


Here is the message from his mom:
I hate to ask for help, but I need to.  Holidays are already hard on inmates so God gave me an idea. I’m asking for anyone who feels led, to send him a note of encouragement. {especially MEN} I want him to be bombarded over the next 30 days with whatever God lays on someone’s heart to share with him. …I just think it would be good for him to hear from other people besides his parents. Plus, kids don’t always hear what mom and dad have to say.

If you send a card, keep it plain…no glitter, music, etc. they will throw it away or return it to you if it has any of those things because they’re SO picky.

Thank you so much, I appreciate you!

Thanks everyone. Enjoy your Friday!!!!

Advertiser Testimonial from Merry Maids

At Merry Maids, our whole philosophy and mission statement is rooted in service to others. It is easy to lose sight of this basic fundamental however, becoming consumed with staffing, financials, logistics, well, you know what I am talking about. We became aware of Dr. Clint Steele and his Pay it Forward movement in the spring of 2013 at a local business breakfast in Scarborough. This basic concept of doing little things for others, in an either calculated or random fashion, was very attractive to me, both professionally and personally. Helping others is nothing new, and all of us do it every day through our business or as friends, parents, leaders, etc. However, this conscious effort to perform random acts of kindness takes little effort on our part, and makes a huge difference. Our business has been growing over the past couple years, and I am convinced that a large part of our success has been our focus on helping others. Is helping others good for business? It sure is. Customers, especially customers in Maine, love to support a company that they know is using some of their money to help other hard working Mainers. The Pay it Forward concept is a fun concept as well, because something as simple as paying for someone’s coffee in line, can make their day and even possibly change their position on human nature! Wow, now there is a lofty thought, but certainly not out of reach. We love supporting Pay it Forward Magazine both through the purchase of ad space, and the promotion of their mission to our staff and customers. It has proven to be a very positive endevour that has sparked enthusiasm in our staff, which has led to greater productivity at work. We are looking forward to continuing to be a part of this awesome project and magazine.

July 19th, 2013 PAY IT FORWARD FRIDAY Act of Kindness


I love this idea. I first came across it a few years ago but was recently reminded by it in a recent issue of PAY IT FORWARD x 1 Million Magazine. As I interviewed Ben Sholl of Merry Maids, he shared a story about a free house clean they did for a woman who had just lost her dear husband to brain cancer. As they entered the house to do the clean, they were told they could clean the whole house except for the upstairs bedroom mirror. Hmmmm wonder why…well when they got to the bed room they soon realized why they were not to clean the mirror. Written on the mirror, in black marker, were the words from the husband to his wife prior to his death…” I will always be with you honey, I will love you always.” WOW… words from her deceased husband, written with his own hand and she did not want that gone, EVER!!!!

The other day in a networking meeting were challenged ( thanks SHARON LITTLE) to take a dry erase marker and simply write something positive in the mirror for each of us to see each day. I will add, not only us personally but anyone else who uses that mirror. Something positive, something encouraging, something inspiring…so as we look into that mirror we see ourselves and the see the positive wording with that at the same time and associated ourselves with something positive. SO POWERFUL!!!

Today’s act of kindness is for YOU and for those you are the closest. Simple take a dry erase marker ( make sure it is not a Sharpee unless you want it to stay permanently) and write something positive, encouraging, motivational, empowering of encouraging in one, or more, of your mirrors today. Leave it there for at least the next week or perhaps change it from time to time or better yet have each person in your household take turns writing something positive on the mirror each day.
