Get a Jar your size.

Dear Diary,

Thank God..I’m in a state of glee right now..I am extremely happy today. I had a much better day than yesterday and I ‘m just excited about that.

Today, I got much done at work and it was generally a productive day for me..

So whilst standing at a reception of an office, I noticed a transparent COIN jar asking for donations to a Social Service agency with stickers that read Pennys, $20cents, 25Cents, 5cents and it was filled to the brim with Pennys.

Last week, I stopped by an African restaurant and while waiting on my food to be packed in the take-away plates, I caught sight of the TIP jar and I held it and attempted giving a tip but the almost empty jar wouldn’t take my money as it neither had room nor an outlet for paper currency.

The same week, I walked down the tunnel at Yorkdale Mall and I noticed a gentleman playing the steel pan and entertaining passers by and I looked intently in his make believe money box which was a guitar case and lo and behold I saw a variety of bills all varying amounts and of course some coins here and there

Honestly, I was startled and upon reflection I began to draw a connection between these three scenarios..
They all had something in common-they all needed support from completely random people.
However, they all had various mindsets and expectations.

Life truly does hand you what you ask for and what you have room to contain. Notice in the first case scenario, the implication of the coin jar with stickers of penny’s automatically pre empted just that, PENNY’s!

With regards to the African restaurant, I began to think that even I really wanted to show bountiful kindness in tips, I was held back. I just wasn’t allowed to give past a coin as the narrow tip box only had a coin slot and would not accommodate my generous tip.

However, my Yorkdale entertainer came with a bigger container, a bigger expectation and got bigger results, although I’m not sure if he understood this concept prior to coming up with a guitar case or it just happened to be. My point is, the ocean of wealth and opportunities is HUGE! and there’s enough for every one. If you bring a cup, it will get filled likewise, if you bring a bucket it will also get filled.

Don’t limit yourself with a small jar as what you get depends very much on the size of your container.

So what are you waiting on? Get a jar your worth and I really hope you know your worth.



Much Love,
Bourgy Babe

Very true indeed! Joel Osteen once said, to be successful one must enlarge his/her vision...thoughts, and expectations...think BIG

Exactly. . . I sat next to a very young lady,fresh from the university on a flight from lag to warri via ph. We were stuck to each other for quite a while as the flight was delayed. . . I just went on and on talking to her about how much potential she has waiting to be released. . . telling her to demand for MORE ALWAYS. At some point I felt like I was talking too much, but there is this passion in me to let everyone know that YOU CAN HAVE WHATEVER YOU WANT! It has a whole lot to do with you. . .keep preaching it bourgy babe, you have no idea what impact you have had on your world by this singular publication and off course much more to come. . peace out!

This is the very reason I changed the phrase from "the sky is your limit" to "the sky is only my stepping stone". There's a lot beyond the sky and you have to believe it to see it (not the other way around). We all need to realize that it goes beyond the color of your skin, your education, your gender, your connections etc. Although these things often pose a "threat", no one can stop an individual with a powerful vision!
