“Money is like manure—it’s not worth anything unless you spread it around!”—Dolly Levi in The Matchmaker, by Thornton Wilder

Money is a circle of abundance that is constantly flowing, creating ripples of prosperity just as a stone creates ripples when dropped in a lake. With any purchase, you can easily follow the ripples if you look.

For example, if you buy a car, you have created prosperity for many people in an endless chain. First, the salesperson who sold you the car gets a commission, as does the dealership. The manufacturer also is enriched by the transaction. Most people are conscious of this much sometime during the transaction.

But the ripples continue: Your purchase of the car sends money into the hands of all the people and businesses associated with the production, manufacture, shipping, assembly, and inspections of the automobile. The advertising agency who writes the ad that attracts the buyer, the newspaper that prints the ad, the salesperson who sold the ad space, the person who sells the newspaper the paper stock and the ink. The lumberyard that produced the paper, the lumberjacks who chopped the wood, the trucker who hauled the wood and the one who moved the paper. Then the insurance company that provides the insurance policy on the car and all the workers associated with that business. How far can you follow the ripples? It is endless.

It is important for your personal prosperity to take joy in this process. As you write the check or pay the cash for your purchase, know that you are creating financial benefits for many unseen individuals who make their livings from multiples of these transactions. Smile and remember to write “Thank you!” on every check. You are giving of your abundance to other people and they will be doing the same—sending it out and around and eventually it will circle back to you.

Then you will send it out again.

Today’s Affirmation:
“Every dollar I send out comes back to me multiplied!”

A friend of mine said, “Vacation is the reality – work is an illusion.” Hee.

Taking heed of my own advice to be sure to take lots of time off to enjoy life and be a “human being” instead of a “human doing” is always important to remember. I’ve started taking Sundays off from reading and answering emails. I’d vow to give myself a break from Social Media, too, but I enjoy it too much!

At least, that’s the plan, but I notice how addicted I am to keeping up with it all. I just read an article on how people today are overstressed by the burden of email and all the Social Media platforms. I love the ease of staying in touch with the many people I know and love, and certainly it’s great for business. And free! Unlike the letters with postage of old…

But it’s like so many things in life – great in appropriate quantities, but big trouble if over-indulged in. I find myself more rested, relaxed, and happy when I take a break.

Hope you have a glorious day today, with a lot of rest and relaxation! May it be filled with joy, love, and lots of goodies!

Smile and remember to write “Thank you!” on every check.

Prosperity is a habit. You have to practice it every day.
