Gratitude is an Action Word, "Show it, don't Say it"Aug 13, 2022
My friend Joshua sent me $20 to SHOW his GRATITUDE for something that I had done. It was my second nature to do what I did, so there were not expectations for payment. I wanted to help him get a bigger stage for his message of positivity.
I declined his electronic payment.
He shared with me that it was important to him that I accept his gesture graciously. This would allow the continuum to prosper. By not accepting it, it would slow his enthusiasm toward my gesture. I finally accepted.
When the universe gives, it is ok to receive.
On a recent webinar, we also shared our thoughts about HOW WE CAN SHOW GRATITUDE, NOT JUST SAY IT.
