Give A Kidney...Have a Month of Hell

It has been two months since my last post, and I am really bad at not following the 'blogger' bible of keeping up to date on postings...sorry.

I did donate my kidney on Feb 11th to a stranger.  After the donation, I meet the recipients family and then a day later the recipient.  While the experience was amazing and painful, and clearly not for everyone, I would encourage more people to donate when they are able to do so.  Once I recovered and got back into my normal routine, the glow of the moment had passed.  Yet, even now, I can see my scar and know that what I did made a lasting impression on the world.  Yes, I did say the world.

Just as with every day life, each thing we do causes the usual ripple effect, both positive and negative.  In this case, while I helped a person live a longer and hopefully happier life, what I did was just not for him, but for the world.  That single act, did cause a ripple effect, and I sincerely believe that since it was given out of true love for a fellow human being, that the positive energy would continue through his life and the life of his family and beyond each other.  Is that optimistic, God I hope so!

While one would think that raking up of such good karma, I would have a decent if not a great year.  Well, as with my soap box life, that is not always the case.  At the end of March I was in a car accident, and thankfully no one was injured, but my car was totaled.  Then a week later my bike was stolen.  A week later my PC crashed and I was down for a week unable to properly do business.  Then the finale blow I found out someone had stolen my ID.  Ah, what a month it was.  But even with all of this frustration, I was also reminded that I have to be very clear in what I ask for from God and the Universe.

The six months prior to the car being totaled, I kept saying that I needed to replace the car as the repairs (new breaks, transmission, etc.) would cost more then the car was worth.  So the Universe answered and removed the car from me.  I should have been a bit more clear in asking that the funds be in place first so I could afford to replace the car immediately and with little to no problems. 

The bike reminding me how valueless personal possessions really are and by riding the public bus system, it reinforced the need for replacing the car quickly if I was to be able to maintain my business and goals. Thus, it pushed me harder to make things happen in a better more profitable way.

The PC was an interesting item, for it crashed just at a time when I was suppose to be in Houston for a week long event.  Between it being down and horrible rain storms that literally cancelled bus trips to Houston, I had no choice but to stay home, and that worked out better for me in the long run.  Again, the trip to Houston was not something I was wanting to do and had issues with all year, so the Universe gave me an out and I took it.

Finally, the Stolen ID...well, they can have it...lol  So far only one item has been reported from that theft and it relates to a Sprint account and a gold iPhone.  At this point in time, there is little to no damage on my credit report as I can easily clear that item and I am prepared for any additional items that may appear.  I believe that once they realized I had poor credit after this past year, they were not able to open any additional accounts in my name.  And now, with this fraud showing up, they will have a harder time to open any more accounts.

So while it has been an interesting few months full of frustration and life, I have also become more at peace with it.  The situations remind me to 'chill out' and relax.  Life does happen, and life does go on.  Nothing is ever so bad that one should take their life, nor take another's life.  What is the overall lesson I am to learn from my past, who knows.  I can only hope that it keeps me on the path I have chosen of prosperity by giving help to others through the Non-profits I have created and that my simple act of kindness outshines the negative aspect of things in the world and helps people to grow stronger, better and more loving.

Life goes on...I go on
