I had a small credit card size wallet I wanted to gift.
Someone in my Buy Nothing group raised her hand.
And for whatever reason, I was inspired to put a dollar bill and a penny inside. A bright shiny penny.
I was curious how she’d respond.
Ok. Back story provides context: I was gifted a lovely handbag from same Buy Nothing group. The wallet was tucked inside. It made for a lively, fun back and forth conversation, as I inquired if she wanted it back. No. I could keep it. I teased I was keeping the money…. we honestly had a good laugh about it. She’d included it on purpose, as she did not need it.
Was I hoping or expecting an excited, or maybe even confused, response or message?
I’m not sure.
I confess I was expecting SOMETHING.
Nope. Just a “picked up” message.
So I sat with what WERE my expectations anyway?
I was not necessarily expecting a thank you, but I confess, I was expecting a query.
We all have money stories and money blocks. My consciousness is opening up around money as I put myself in rooms where wealth is normalized. It’s an energy. It’s the energy exchange we use for goods and services.
I don’t know what this woman’s money story is. But I can observe that there was no acknowledgment or gratitude or even serendipity.
How can the Universe work with that? (or without that)
I don’t have all the answers.
It’s just a curious thing… I think I was looking for the fun in it. Because acquiring the wallet was delightful and fun.
Gratitude goes a long way. It makes it fun to keep on giving. It's also basic kindness and manners. Be kind; say thank you.
