Stories of Kindness from Around the World

When You Give, The Universe Gives Back


--by kindness1st, posted Sep 7, 2018
It really is true that when you give, it comes back to you:

I recently gifted my favorite sun hat to a friend who had been looking for one like mine for months. I found it online and had it sent to him for his birthday.

A few weeks later, I lost my own. I was bummed! That hat had traveled everywhere with me. But then a few days later, a different friend had come back from his trip to the Philippines and what did he give me as a souvenir? A sun hat!

I hosted my first meditation circle earlier this week, which involved cooking a dinner for the large group. I had never cooked for a large group of people in my life. I loved shopping for the food, cooking for them, and even learning a few new recipes on my own.

Just today, I hiked with a friend and when we departed, he took a huge box of food out and said there was a bunch of produce leftovers at his family's house and he wanted me to have them. It had all kinds of potatoes, onions, corn stalks, pears, apples, peaches, food that will last me for a week if not longer...mind you, this friend didn't attend the meditation circle nor did he know about the dinner afterward, and it was completely unprompted.

It gives me goosebumps to witness how the universe can work sometimes!
