Mine or Yours

“While walking on the beach you stumble on a valuable object buried in the sand – say, a piece of jewelry or an envelope full of cash. What do you do with it? Under what circumstances would you keep it?”

I’d like to believe I’m the type of person that would say – “Oh yes, I would immediately take the found item to the nearest local authority and turn it in”. But I’m honest enough to say that it depends on what I find. If I did find a piece of jewelry, an exorbitant amount of money in an envelope, or a phone I would try to find the owner or turn it in. But if I found a dollar or something small and there was no one around, I’d probably keep it or give it to someone as a “gift from the universe”.

Doesn’t that sound like a wonderful idea? You’re walking along the beach. Lost in thought, when you come across something. You pick it up, look around to see if someone in sight may have dropped it. When you don’t see anyone, take a closer look at the object. Inspecting the surface and contents of the object. It’s a sign or gift from the universe. It has given you the exact thing that you didn’t know you wanted but once you find it, it’s the exact thing you needed.

  1. Yes that is a beautiful thought, and may I add a lovely picture. My husband once picked an old sign that said, “Hang loose”, he brought it home and we framed it!
