What you Give is what you Get or is it?

Did you know?

Sometimes in my life I have been in the mistaken frame of mind that I deserve to receive love and attention from my family and friends when I am only spending a small amount of time with them and our relationships become a little distant.

Then I remember to remind myself ‘what you give is what you get’. I start to spend more time with my friends and family so they no longer ask for my identity card.

Sometimes in my life I have been in the mistaken frame of mind that I deserve to be paid more for doing the same work I have always done in the same old way. Then I remember to ask myself ‘Should I be paid more if I am not adding any more value to what I do?’ Of course not, so I add more value.

In fact, as you know (and I am writing to continually remind myself) that what you give in life is what you get back.

The funny thing is that when I give I often get many times more of everything I give back in the most surprising and wonderful ways.

Your friend on the journey,
