Giving When You Don’t Have Much

I am so grateful for where I am today.

I would not be where I am today without the help of others.

3dmanheartThank you.

I appreciate you.

Even if you never did anything for me directly. I love you.

I appreciate you.

I love and adore you for the things you have done for other people. That’s what life is about.


Imagine a young woman on her way to the store.
She only has $20 to feed herself and two children for the week.
She’s wondering how she will be able to keep them fed.

She sees a woman begging on the street with a sign that says,

NEED $10
4 Sick Son

She gives the woman $10 and a ride to get the medicine her son needs.
She feeds her family for the week on the remaining $10.
They have plenty to eat… they even have enough for guests.

Giving can save a life!

The youtube video ^ above was circulating facebook and it hit me how great it feels to give and to know that the universe will provide a way if you expect it to.

Always be giving of yourself. Even if you can’t financially afford to give, you can give the gift of friendship, support, advice or whatever you are good at.

Treat others as you would like them to treat you. That is the way I like to live. No matter what happens, I continue to give with happiness.

Get Happy with Giving

givingEven if you are buying the essentials: food, rent, utilities, supplements, herbs. You can still get a healthy attitude about money. Feel great about giving your money away for whatever the reason.

Dov Baron, author of Don’t Read This Unless You Want More Money!: Subconscious Tactics of the Truly Affluent wrote GBAM on every bill he gave away which stands for “God Bless And Multiply“ This trains your mind to think good thoughts when giving money away.

Try it, it works!

A friend of mine once said that the day he became and F.O.B. he began having more money.

F.O.B. = friend of bills

He had happy thoughts about the bills he had to pay and he had more money left at the end of the month. Your thoughts around money could be keeping you in the poor house!

I would love to hear about your favorite way to give!

Stress causes more stress

Today I felt like a wind up toy or one of those toys that runs when you pull the zip cord. One big ball of stress, ready to explode.

I had an appraiser coming to the house at 3:00 and I was just a bundle of nerves. Around 1:00, sat down and ate lunch… then by quarter of three, I felt like throwing up.

The whole time I was worrying about this home inspection, I was thinking about how I am leaving for a 4-5 day trip TOMORROW… and I am not even packed. As we speak, I am still not packed.

I decided to sit down and write a blog INSTEAD of packing.

A blog about stress… and how it is not good for you. Or me.

Stress should be avoided at all cost.

What causes stress?

Today, the stress I was feeling was caused by caring too much about the outcome and not having control of what happens.

We did a lot of work on our house last year and in order to pay for it, I borrowed $28K on 0% credit cards. The introductory period just ran out… so now I am paying hundreds of dollars per month in interest. I NEED to roll those credit cards into a mortgage.

This appraisal HAS to come back close to $140,000. I am so focused on that number… I have to let it go. It is causing me stress to focus on that number… because now it is out of my control. I am asking for help from you, my friend. As you read this… concentrate on that number. $140,000. Help me get my mortgage.

Letting go

After I pack, I am going to relax with a meditation CD. That usually calms me when I am feeling like this. Right now… I have to pack. Then… I will let go and let God. It is out of my hands now.

Tomorrow I will be traveling to the conference on “Safe and Effective Flood and Mold Remediation after Super Storm Sandy and other Natural Disasters.”

I am so grateful to be going to this conference! I give thanks to all who have made this trip possible! I am so blessed!

This is a fabulous learning opportunity!

I will be taking lots of notes so I can share with you on my blog and in support groups. I will be asking questions for myself and for some other people who have asked me already… and if asked, I will be sharing our personal success story.

If you have a question you would like to ask about mold remediation, health, or advocacy… ask me in the comments! I will do everything I can to get your question answered by one of the experts at the conference.

The Science of Being Well

I can remember a turning point of when we were all very sick and when we seemed to take a turn toward healing. My son was too sick to go to school and I was spending every waking moment researching how to get him well. I was pretty sick too… but all my focus was on getting him well.
