Live Lighter by paying it forward

That’s wonderful and I couldn’t agree more.

It makes no difference where you are in the world to do something nice or have it done for you. I’ve been traveling in Ecuador. A few days ago, I was walking toward the main park on the waterfront and stopped to buy a water, then continued down the sidewalk.

Somewhere, I picked up a piece of tape stuck to the bottom my shoe. I noticed it was sticking to the ground with every step. I paused, my hands were full, and I tried to dislodge the tape by stepping on it with my other foot-no luck.

A nice man came from behind me and bent down and pulled the tape off of my shoe and deposited it into a trash can a block away. I was amazed. How nice was that?

People are truly good.

Thanks for your story!
