I’m not rich. I don’t have $1 million in my bank account waiting for me to spend on something extravagant. Hell, I don’t have $1,000 in my bank account waiting for me to spend on something I need. But I do have my bills paid, food, a roof over my head, clothes and everything I need plus a little more.
Relatively speaking, I’m OK but I’m not rich. Unless you don’t have money for a starter and your job requires your vehicle to make money, then I’m rich.
Today, I got my spa fixed. It’s not a necessity but I had the money and I like to get in my spa when my muscles ache (which happens a lot more than I’d like to admit). There was a possibility that the new breaker was bad. I told the tech that I’d replace it without thinking twice. It would cost about $100. Not a lot. I’ll just go get it. I was cool with that. The tech fixing my spa asked to try it out and see if he could resurrect it. After all, $100 bucks is $100 bucks, right? He did and it worked. Saved me $100.
Fast forward eight hours. My friend called me and needed to borrow $113 to be exact. She needed a new starter for her truck. This truck is her way to provide income for herself and her family.
Guess what? I’m rich, relatively speaking. And I’m not talking about the money. I’m talking about the fact that I can help my friend. I’m rich that way.
That hundred dollars that I was going to recklessly spend on my spa is now going to a much more noble cause…a starter that will provide a living for a family.
What’s my point here? Count. Your. Blessings.
You could be one starter away from not being able to provide for your family if not for your friends. That small magic, $100 for me, turned out to have a big impact on my friend.
Small magic is all around us. Are you performing any today?
