#FlashbackFriday About a year ago I made a post about getting rid of my @lamborghini Gallardo, and donating the proceeds to charity. In that post I said "You always get back what you put out into the world." I wanted to take a moment to reflect and share what has happened since...
✅ I sold the car in October 2016
✅ Part of the proceeds went to a 3 year charity program, that assists single moms in Bangladesh out of poverty by providing them with tools, training, and resources to provide for their families and become self sufficent.
✅ Part of the proceeds went to an interest free microfinance fund, that helps those in poverty to use the loan as working capital (without interest). The idea is for them to use the funds to purchase tools that will help them generate sustainable income for themselves.
✅ Part of the proceeds went to the severe drought crisis in East Africa.
✅ When I sold the car in October 2016, there was NO conversation of Farsali being available at Sephora. Fast forward a few months, conversations with Sephora go extremely well, and Farsali launches in Sephora 4 months later, on February 2017. Products sell out within 24 hours, and eventually goes on to becoming a Sephora bestseller!
Reflecting back at my quote from last year... it's crazy for me to see all of this happen before my eyes. Was it a coincidence? I don't think so. I believe everything in life happens for a reason. But this doesn't mean you should always give to expect something in return. Do things because it comes from your heart, and don't expect anything in return.
Now... I'm not perfect, nor do I claim to be. Everyone has a past... but one thing that I've learned is: if you engage in negativity, that's all you'll attract in your life... if you engage in positivity, you will attract more happiness and blessings in your life 🙏🏼
