Good Things Will Happen If You Follow This Advice

Whenever you run across a person that you have an unconscious feeling to help and you act without any expectations of praise or returning the favor, and you do this kindness from the heart, then you will be rewarded. 

I know from personal experience you will get paid back for that unselfish gesture in one way or another.  On the other hand, if you do for others in hope of being rewarded, you won't get anything but disappointment. 

No matter what your personal situation is, there is hope to expect good things can come to you if you follow this basic rule.  Just remember if something is given without the thought of any reward, you indeed, will be rewarded and probably more than you could have imagined.  I believe this with every fiber of my being to be true.  This simple philosophy can change your life-- if you set your mind to use it without thinking.

A true act of charity is one that you do without expecting any recognition or even thanks.  You do the kind act because it needs to be done!  Trust me, it will relief stress as well.

Mary I sent you an email but you can disregard that message. I did want to tell you, you don't have to post the entire linky because it's so big. You can just post the button. The coding for that is on my right sidebar. Sorry for the misunderstanding and I'm following you back. I hope to see you back next Sunday.
