With Thanksgiving just around the corner, consider buying two of something—of which you will only use one.
You say, “What? But I’m on a budget!”
I say, “Absolutely live within your means. Know you are provided for. Act as if. And a reminder: As we give, we receive.”
I recently heard on the radio the number of children who are homeless in the USA has risen 80% in the last two years. I’m asking you to recognize your wealth at whatever level it is. If you can, spend $3.00 on a bag of rice, or a box of chicken broth (this week I bought two for the price of one.) Maybe you can even spend $20.00 or $50.00 and think of it as an anonymous gift. Leave the food in a collection bin at one of the grocery stores now collecting for food banks. Check the food expiration dates, make sure it’s non-perishable, and not in glass. And donate something you would enjoy eating. I buy doubles—one to keep; one to give.
Sharing doesn’t have to be a burden. Get the kids involved. Invite your friends to join you in each buying one different item. Celebrate your wealth, your prosperity consciousness, and your open heart by sharing.
Peace and Blessings.
