What an interesting week, been travelling a lot but coming home to exciting mail. 5 competition wins in 7 days, yep…5. Not cheap ones either, a nice cash win (only my second ever) being one of the wins. Also the 2 Kindles and now 2 juicers! One of the juicers is worth £170, but no place in my home for it so ebay it will end up on.
This is an unusual turnaround but emphasises what I have said many times before, you can go months winning nothing then you get a flood! There is no reason for it, just pure luck of the draw! The little cash win was a nice pre-Christmas boost, and one of the juicers is black which matches my kitchen sides so a good fit!
It is always a bonus to win the things you either wanted or can sell, especially if of high value! All the evening hours of entering these competitions make it so worth it. I truly think all the wins have made a difference to my finances, but also to the outward appearances of my lifestyle. Anytime that I can add something nice and posh to my home, without buying it, makes me look more successful in other people’s eyes. I know we shouldn’t care what people think, I never used to but ever since the spectre of debt I have been oh too aware of people’s opinions!
The important thing – say nothing. Nobody needs to know about these wins, just get on with placing them in your home or selling them. It is all about self-improvement, and I myself made the effort to win these things by the hours of filling out forms. Makes a change from filling our financial forms I guess!
December is a big month for competitions, so many Christmas and advent competitions. Easily 4 times as much effort needed but the rewards are higher. Anyone else struggling, give it a go. Never get disheartened either, you will win. The law of averages decides that for you. If you can afford a laptop and broadband, nothing can stop you.
Hopefully the lucky streak will continue on, makes a nice change to be honest.
Something’s in the air…I can smell it. For the second time in a month I have walked outside my front door and found a five pound note on the pavement. I mean, finding any money is a bonus, but the same value denomination in the same location twice in 4 weeks? What am I looking at here, pure coincidence or the start of a lucky run? Or…a higher power feeling sorry for me?
It’s strange though isn’t it, you pray for extra money to come your way. I only every hope for money to pay off the debt and to make sure the kids have what they need. I think it’s important not to be greedy if asking for help, and it’s not just these five pound notes. I have also found other money has been appearing here and there, not great values but helpful all the same.
What this does is throw up whether the power of higher thought works? Does appealing to whomever get the right attention? I need to be clear though, I am not religious in any way but I do consider myself open-minded to the power of the universe. Hell what do I have to lose, I won’t rule anything out!
The important thing, as previously written about, is to stay positive. To believe things will change. We all know life is not pre-planned, it is hard and brings moments that are tough to deal with. I think that these moments are the counter balance to the happy joyous times. It is how you deal with them that defines your strength and I believe being positive helps that.
Next time finding a fifty pound nice would be good though!
I have a side hobby, a geeky one so I will keep it a secret for now. But, I often wonder if being positive plays a part in it. Take today for example, woke up knowing I was spending the morning doing my hobby and had a feeling something good would happen. It stuck with me, and it’s happened before.
It happened again, hobby produced something great. It’s amazing yes, but how do I put this to winning money to clear some of the this debt! Or..perhaps it doesn’t work that way? I have read ‘The Secret’ , learnt about the influence of the universe etc and it only seems to work in some situations.
Stay with me, I am not some oddball who believes in the stars and/or magic. I wonder if positivity only works for something you haven’t caused yourself? deliberately or by error. Perhaps the point of life is to push you along but not bail you out, but something will have to.
My positive thoughts on the debt are mostly hopes and dreams! As in, lottery win / inheritance / find buried treasure! The important thing is to stay as positive as you can, apparently it can attract good fortune. Well my smile has been pasted on for so long now it needs renewing! Smiling through an affair, divorce and mountainous debt is some acting let me tell you.
But it has to end sometime, I firmly believe that and that, in itself, is a positive thought!
