Day 23

So last night I met a woman who wanted to buy a comforter set that I had for sale. She told me she was just starting out and needed anything that would help with a household. In looking at her Facebook page it appeared she was in her mid-20's and maybe had several children. When I met her I asked her if she had any kids and she told me her Dad's kids were living with her. I didn't ask for more details but in short, I decided to give her anything that we didn't need or that I had not had luck in selling. So I gave her a holder for tableware, some of my clothes, baking dishes, an extra set of sheets, purses, holiday decorations, pretty much anything I was looking to get rid of and out of our house. She was very grateful and said she would take it all. I told her if she couldn't use it to pass it on or donate it. It felt good to pay it forward and to help someone who truly needed it and was appreciative. When you give back  ~ you feel good. So think about what you can do to help someone in need. It is a single neighbor who has no family? A family member in need? A friend that just needs a hello? Give back, pay it forward, bring a smile. Giving back is the BEST feeling in the world!

  1. Give until it hurts and then keep giving until it feels good again.
