''A guy looked at this Corvette the other day and said I wonder how many people could have been fed for the cost of that car. I replied I am not sure, it fed a lot of families in Kentucky who built it, it fed the people who make the tires, it fed the people who made the components, it fed the people in the copper mine who mined the copper for the wires, it fed people who make the trucks that haul the copper ore. That's the difference between capitalism and welfare mentality. When you buy something, you put money in people's pockets and give them dignity for their skills'' - Author Unknown but I love this message and I just had to share it!
So many shady people out there wanna steal your joy when you move up and better yourself. If God wants you to have it who can argue with that? But furthermore your success is shared by others when you reach a higher financial level that affords you to be able to invest in the finer things in life. Thing is... you don't have to be "rich" to do this. Every time you purchase (or donate) something another human being benefits. Whether it's a piece of candy, a new coat, paying for a service, buying a house or a car.....somebody benefits. Somebody is getting fed and paying bills as a result of your business or kindness. Also remember that every little bit helps. So you don't have a dollar? How bout 50 cents? Never be ashamed of giving a little or giving a lot and if others can't handle it that is THEIR problem not yours. Just do what you can. I'm just as thankful for the guy or gal who purchased this car as I am for the one who donated to the Salvation Army. Personally I'm super thankful for those who invest in voice lessons or who check out my blogs and podcasts at SingingFlat.com
I also absolutely adore those who help others who are less fortunate, who are sick or who may have fallen on hard times. If you know of or represent a cause that helps others by collecting donations to help improve lives please contact me and I'd love to share your info in my blog. Yours in music! - Sally b.
