Money Doesn’t Go Away.
I grew up saving money and I was so tight with my money to the point where I never spent more than $50 on myself at any one time because it was so hard for me to earn more money. I am an international student depending only on myself financially, without family support from overseas. I had been feeling sad and sorry for myself for a while.
One day, I came across the law of attraction and The Secret. I remember clearly a line that said, “Money doesn’t go away, it goes from one place to another.” I was unemployed at the time and of course, I did not believe it. However, I woke up one morning feeling like I should do something different that day.
I went for a walk in the city and enjoyed some fresh air. I passed by a homeless lady who seemed to be hungry. It was cold outside and I felt bad for her. I didn’t carry cash on that day, so I asked if I could buy her something to eat with my card. She asked for a cup of hot chocolate and a chocolate muffin. I walked into the QVB building right across from her and lined up at the first cafe to get her those things she asked for.
While waiting for the food, the line was so long that I stood on it looking at the shops. A lady from the beauty pop-up store next to the cafe came over to me and asked if I would like her to do my hair with her new curler while I was waiting. Normally, I would just say no. I wouldn’t be bothered as I know they’ll try to make me buy it. However, on that day I didn’t feel the same way. I thought, hey, there’s nothing to lose, I have time to kill and I won’t buy it anyway. So I said yes. I sat down for her to try the machine on my hair. She only got to a quarter of my hair before my order was ready to pick up but my hair looked so beautiful and it made me smile. I asked for the price, smiled, and left because someone was waiting for that food.
I went and gave the homeless lady the chocolate muffin and the hot drink. She was so happy.
I decided to go home and on the way, I remembered the saying from The Secret again. I so wanted to get that machine because it was so easy to use and the outcome was phenomenal. I had never owned one that was so good in quality and that made my hair look so pretty. I imagined it would be so nice to have one and have my hair curled every day, it would make me really happy. But the thing cost $249, which was way out of my budget! I did not have a job at the time so it was silly to buy one.
I walked home and could not stop thinking of the hair curler and the saying, “Money doesn’t go away, it goes from one place to another.” It also said if I spend money on something that made me happy, the money would come back to me in another way.
I thought about it. If I spent the money on the machine as a test to see if I got it back somehow, I would lose the money but I’ll get the machine. That would make me happy every day. So I did it! I went home, pulled out all the savings from my piggy bank and guess what?! I had exactly $249 in it! A strange feeling ran through my body. Something told me that I was doing the right thing. I caught the train going back to the store and bought it, came back home, and started using it straight away. I was so happy! For the first time, I had spent so much money on myself!
After I was done, I looked at myself in the mirror and smiled. A message came through my phone instantly at that moment from CBA. I checked and it said I was eligible to claim some insurance premiums from back in 2016 when I had my personal loan with them, and they provided a link to the claim. I was skeptical. It sounded like a scam to me but I clicked on the link anyway because it was from CBA, the bank I trusted the most.
Well, it turned out that I was eligible for a $308.00 refund, and the money was deposited 14 days later! Who could have seen that happening??? It can’t be a coincidence, so you gotta believe it! When you least expect it, you have the least resistance to the idea and it just comes effortlessly.
