Do good stuff —> Expect good stuff.

One day, a boy and a girl were playing in the park.

The boy had a collection of marbles. The girl had a big bag of candy.

The boy offered a trade… All his marbles in exchange for the girl’s entire bag of candy. The girl agreed and they shook hands.

The girl handed over her bag of candy as promised. But when the boy gave his marbles, he secretly kept 1 back for himself. It was the biggest and most beautiful marble of the pack.

That night, the girl slept peacefully, believing it was a good trade.

But the boy couldn’t sleep. He was up all night wondering if the girl had hidden some of her treats just like he had hidden his marble.


Dear whoever is reading this:

When you do bad stuff (even tiny little white lies), you end up suspecting and expecting bad stuff from others.

On the flip, when you live honestly and do good stuff, you expect and uphold good stuff from others.

Today: Do good stuff. Expect good stuff.

Your sleep is too precious to lose.
