Why I smile about being ripped off
I find it interesting that Jo Ann called me to write a new story the day after I had cleared a raging victim story going on in my head.
That really mean lady at the "Me and My Porch Designs" told me to take the 3 pieces home and if they didn't work I could return them for a full refund. So I happily went home to try them with my friend who was helping me redecorate my bedroom. Well, I loved the three pieces but they just didn't work where I had planned. So I returned them the next day, pointing out to her a blemish in one of the pieces, because I wasn't sure if it was part of the distressed look of the furniture style.
In front of many customers in the store she said she could not take back the one that I damaged. I explained to her that the damage was already there when I took it home, and besides I was the one who pointed it out. There was no reasoning with her, so I paid $119.00 for the damaged piece, took it and left angry and mad. Some people left the store because of the way she was talking to me, and I was happy about that! But I was still mad!
I got home and put “the damaged piece” against a wall that I had not even considered; and it looks beautiful! I really love the piece.
So was it a mistake? No, it was divine right order, which I realized of course, only after I had done the forgiveness work.
I really felt so much lighter and happy about the whole incident after doing the meditation and getting into my heart space. That is what shifted it for me, so I am very grateful.
And I now smile when I walk into my room, and say thank you. I like telling this new story. :)
Good memories to go! Thanks, Jo Ann
