Moving is never easy, especially from one country to another. We lose or have to give away so many things we have cherished for years.
I’ll be moving soon and have a full household with many beautiful things. There’s still time, and I’m working on what all I can give away.
I looked at my bursting bookshelf and took out about 50 of them. I took their pictures and posted them on my condo chat group! I offered them for free. I wasn’t sure how it would go as I’ve not really interacted much with anyone.
To my amazement, the books were gone within 5 minutes, and requests came porting in for more.
It fills me with delight that my books will still have a home and be read by someone. I did two such rounds, and each time they were gone!
A lady even offered me money which I declined. I loved what she said to me, “ now your good energy comes along with your books.”
Another lady insisted on meeting me and while going asked if she could hug me. She went back home with a new friend in her heart!
The joy in giving to strangers is immense. No expectations yet reward finds its own way.
