So exactly is going on here?
Imagine if the movie “Pay It Forward” and the “WheresGeorge.com” had a baby…
You would have ifoundmoneytoday.com!
Okay, you got me. I didn’t actually FIND money today. I lost money today. Okay fine, I didn’t lose it, I LEFT it, but because of that I KNOW that somebody somewhere in the world today will be telling a friend, a family member, dog, co-worker and anybody else who will listen that THEY found money today! It will change their entire day. Their new mood will affect the people they come into contact with, and I don’t think it’s too lofty of a goal to hope that this single event could kick off a series of events that change their life!
Let’s face it, times are tough. And let me also note that I am not “rich”. I’m actually far from it, but I do know what it’s like to be SUPER broke. I also know what it’s like to feel that the universe is looking out for you, and that is the feeling I’m trying to give to whoever is lucky enough to find my little presents. As tough as times have been in my short life, they’re tough for everybody else out there as well. Imagine how good you would feel if you found money today. You’d be reading these words with a different internal tone.
Money is not everything, but finding it is pretty cool.
This blog is an experiment in giving; unconditional giving. We are going to be giving while receiving nothing in return; not even a thank you. Well, not from the person that found the money anyway. The “thank you” will be coming from a place that I think most people have forgotten exists. It will be coming from inside, so you’ll be the giver AND the recipient of the gratitude. People have been in survival mode for so long that they’ve forgotten what it feels like to have a little extra to spread around. Somebody found money, but you found something way more valuable; a good mood and maybe even a little bit more self esteem.
You will never know who found the money you left, and there’s always the possibility that the “wrong” person found it, but that’s irrelevant. We are here to give unconditionally. Everybody deserves to feel good, especially you. So don’t give until it hurts. Give until it feels good!
