Gratitude #11 - luck

I'm so lucky I can win a prize just by walking into a room! Today I finally remembered to bring a coupon for a free Twix bar that I won somewhere to the store and get my candy. I noticed a game code on the one I chose, so I just plugged it in...and won another Twix bar! Woo hoo!

I think luck is all in your attitude. I know so many people who repeat things like, "I just can't win," or "Everything always goes wrong," or, "I'm just unlucky." Please don't think that way, that's just something a sad sack told you a long time ago and I don't think it's true. Don't let it stick. The universe wants good things for us all.

I agree about luck - quite a bit of it seems related to be open to opportunities.

I recently read something about temperament and spotting opportunities, too. They did an experiment with a number of optimists and pessimists and told them to count how many photos were in a certain section of the newspaper, and the optimists outscored the pessimists every time. The big secret was that there was a huge headline on page 2 that said "There are 29 photos, you don't need to count" and the pessimists never SAW that.

Well done. And it's lovely that winning isn't just the big things. Something like a couple of free choccie bars can make you happy, too. I won a few choccie bars from one of those claw machines yesterday. Happy as a lark, me.

Enjoy, I know my kids did... :D

I've never tried a claw machine! They're usually full of toys I don't want. But now I'll look harder the next time I see one.

Yay! Nothing like winning free stuff - no matter what it is. Congrats.
Luck... I normally agree with your attitude but this year has been hell on me lol
But I look forward to the upcoming year and a clean slate ;o)
