Pass it on

Most people like the game tag. In fact, I can only think of a few that don't. If you do, here is something kinda like tag. The only thing is, every time you play this, you feel happy, and even if YOU don't, you might make someone's day. Now, even if you don't like tag I am going to ask you to please continue reading. This game is called "pass it on".
Maybe it is not really a game, but what I figured is , if we think of it as a game, we might be more willing to do this. This is how it works.

If you had a bad day at work or just in general, and someone gives you a hug or helps you in any other way, say thank you. But don't stop there. Pass it on. Pass it on to someone else who looks upset.

If you are in a bad mood and someone brings you to your senses, pass it on. Wake someone else up.

If you are in pain and someone helps you, not because they have to, but because they can, Pass it on.

Now, I think you get the general idea of this "game". But don't always let the same person start.
It is your turn to be "it".
Go help someone who needs help.
When they thank you and ask what they can do in return, just tell them to pass it on. Sometimes, they may not thank you. Sometimes, they may not even seem to want help. But let me tell you, if you do choose to play this game, you may touch someones heart, maybe even change a life.

So now go out and help someone who needs it. Pass it on.
