Last year, early in 2019, I decided I was going to have a lucky year.
It was a kind of experiment.
I have never really believed very much in positive thinking. All that standing in front of a mirror and saying postive things to yourself, can’t necessarily make thing happen. If things are to happen, mostly I believe you find a way to make them so. Or fate intervenes.
I was chatting to Marlene from Insearchoftiall about fate and destiny, and she was telling me how her daughter just “decided” she should have good luck. Marlene told me how she was most surprised to see if actually did work, for her daughter.
Now I have to admit that I was a bit sceptical that I could make good luck happen, by simply convincing myself and believing it could happen. But I was intrigued by Marlene’s testimony.
I decided to give this concept of deciding one could experience good luck, by believing it, a go for a month, and see what happened. Even though I knew it was an experiment,- I was determined luck was going to come my way. I was still pretty sceptical, thinking it was just a fun thing to do, and chances of it working were pretty slim. But….
Several spells of good fortune came my way that month. Money back from very unexpected places and things working out for the better, financial and logistical windfalls that caused me to report back to Marlene that the experiment actually did seem to be working.
Yet I remained a little unconvinced that it would continue. Nevertheless, I continued with the experiment, reporting back again to Marlene in our discussions via our blogs. My good luck continued for another two months and 12 months on it seems that it has turned out to be a very fortunate year indeed.
Not only did I have a heap of lucky breaks during the construction of my new house build, there were various other instances too. Just one example is losing my wallet in a shopping centre, one day. For me, that is one of my worst nightmares. I thought there was almost no chance of finding it again as I had no idea where I had dropped it, then chided myself that, of course I would find it, for it was my “lucky year.”
Blow me down, I did find that wallet, under a rack of clothes, in a clothes shop, I had stepped into for less than a minute, about 20 minutes before. When searching for it, I walked into the clothes shop and began asking the shop assistant if anyone had handed in a wallet in the past 30 minutes or so. She shook her head – “No, no, sorry,” she said. I turned to leave and for some reason walked over the left of the store and looked down on the floor under the clothes racks. There it was lying there under some long dresses. The shop assistant had not even noticed it sitting there for what must have been 30 minutes or so.
What are the chances, I thought? Everything inside was intact.
There were many other instances, both minor and major so that by the end of the year, even my husband, the MOTH was responding to a problem saying, “It will all be okay, it is your lucky year!” I convinced the all – time negative sceptic that he is, as well!
It may be visualization, pure coincidence, or the lofty belief that someone was watching over me, but it doesn’t really matter. To me, the experiment worked.
So, I wonder, what do I decide 2020 should be?
Have you ever had tried something similar?
Happy New Year
