    How I Counteracted Negativity! I Challenge YOU.

    A blogger in Florida heard of a 400+ car Pay it Forward going on at his local Starbucks and decided it had to be stopped at number 458.

    I decided to prove that just because someone is not nice, you don't have to respond in the same way. Choose your own way - as long as you pass along some kindness today.

    Here's the story, BUT, I don't urge you to direct any negativity towards this man. Turn it around, Turn it around, TURN IT AROUND. And pay people like this no mind: http://abcnews.go.com/US/florida-man-deliberately-scuttles-pay-forward-starbucks-line/story?id=25084619

    We can start a revolution of kindness right here, right now. Just because there is violence and unrest all over the country and world, you can choose to be a light.

    I challenge YOU to let your light shine! GO!

    * This challenge is not about helping people who need help, although those are important and worthwhile as well. But this is something different. It is about just being human and kind to one another and possibly making someone's day with an unexpected act of kindness. A regular person. Just like you or me. We're not needy, but it still feels great to be gifted randomly with some kindness. The world needs more of this.
