Pay It Forward

Part 1
So after I finished watching the movie "Pay It Forward" I learned a lot, about empathy, and putting yourself in somebody else's shoes. The movie was about a 12 year old kid who had a system of "Paying It Forward". The system was someone does a good deed, and that person does a good deed for 3 other people, and it just continues in the cycle. I learned sometimes its better to think about other people before yourself, and understand how other people are feeling, which is close to impossible.

Part 2

What was your act of kindness?
My act of kindness was cleaning my room without being asked to. Usually my parents have to ask me to clean it but I decided, to just go in my room and clean it up.

Why did you choose this activity?
I chose to do this activity, because my room was mess, and my Mother was really unhappy about it, so I tried to think about how she was feeling (annoyed probably), so I went to clean my room up.

Who did you help?
I helped my Mom by saving her the stress.

What did you do?
I cleaned my room without my parents asking me to.

When did you do your act of kindness?
I did my act of kindness December 8th of 2009.

Part 3

How did your act of kindness go?
It went pretty good, but I still need to re-clean my room, cause it isn't really that clean.

What Happened?
My mom saw it, she said it was okay, but I have to clean it again on the weekend.. she was happy I did it without being asked to though.

How did you feel?
I felt good about it, usually I have to be asked to do something like that, and this is probably the first time I cleaned my room without being asked to.

How did the person react?
The reaction was pretty good, she was happy that I had cleaned it up, because she says "It looked hideous" but I doubt it was that bad..

Did you ask the person to "Pay It Forward"
Yes I told my Mom to smile when she goes to work, and say hi to everybody she hates. Just a simple smile can be paying it forward.

How did they react to your request
The reaction wasn't "hurray" it was a just an average reaction. I might have to remind her to pay it forward.

If you did not ask the person to pay it forward how come?
I did ask.

What is the idea of "Pay It Forward"? Has your act of kindness made a difference?
I think the idea of "Paying It Forward" is to be nice to somebody, or do a good deed for somebody, without being asked to. Just naturally having empathy, and being nice etc. I don't think my "Pay It Forward" drastically made a difference, but its made a difference in my Mom's day, her blood pressure was lower, and I saved her the shouting. Thanks for reading my "Pay It Forward".
