There are More Reasons for Giving or Pay It Forward

When you give, eventually you receive. We all know this truth. But do we follow? And do we Give without any second thought? Without expectations to receive something in return? What about an act of kindness just because of no reasons, not looking for any profit but just to make people feel good, just to make the world a little bit more beautiful place.
Showing CARE, LOVE, CONCERN when you really mean them.
When you really feel, when you really know it is for good.
WE always complain - We CAN NOT change the world for better. Who are we here? Small people living their lives and complaining how much cruel, unfair and sad everything around is? That's shallow-minded. By talking things over and complaining nothing can be and nothing will be changed, by accepting the fact that changing the life in the world for better is not in our hands we just give up. Talking is always easy, action is always difficult.
But since when we choose going for easy things??
We are human beings, we should be proud of things we do and not hide behind words. Words are good, but they are even better when they are set into action. A simple ACT of KINDNESS will not change the big World but it will change the small world of one person, one individual, one person just like YOU. Making it better, making it lovely, making it beautiful. And the ACTS of KINDNESS can be multiplied by your active participation in the PIF-Concept.



PIF or Pay It Forward is something i got to know about from Sameera's blog (read it here). And something that made me think and believe it is something we all might need. Especially in this world of globalization, when all the human values keep losing their importance. When we stopped writing long letters and send postcard because there is e-mail service and free e-cards. When we dont call but prefer sms. When we dont talk but chat. When life stops having human touch....

Here I am proud to present this Concept of PIF, which is spreading throughout the world giving care, love, support, understanding.

"I promise to send a small handmade gift to the first three people who reply to this post on my blog, specifying that they accept the PIF challenge. I do not know what the gift will be as of now, but it will be something personalized and I promise to have it delivered to them within one year from today, no matter what. Of course, as the name indicates, the condition is that all three of them must in turn pay it forward the same way, by putting up a post linking to this one on their blog and promising to send three others a handmade gift."

Here I am not asking you to take but asking you to give and reminding you that there are more reasons for giving than just to be thanked. :)




And even if you are not playing with us, you are still free to add comments!! :)

jhi!! lena. now i understood d concpt of PIF fully. oh..wat a dumbo i m..to get it so lt.
it requires 3 players n itz so sweet of u that u r rdy 2 accpt more. such a sweethrt u r.
but i m also linked with sameera.erlier i ws nt awr that 1 prson can only link with 1..n so i linked with both of u. as i can c u hv alrdy gt 3 plyrs..but i m 1 of d 3 with sameera's link. so as per rule i think i must go with her. in that case some new bloggers can also join d game as u r ready 2 play it with more than 3.
m touched by ur humbleness n good nature. i realy admire n value the frenship i share with u...n it will alwys rmn spcl n precious with or without PIF. i hope i hvnt hurt ur feelings. hope u will understnd me lena.

luv u a lot..hugs n kisses
