Lucky B*tch

P1130521Some of my more scientifically inclined friends have time and time again sighed and shaken their heads at my so called hocus pocus spiritual stuff.  I recently managed to completely persuade one pessimist  to accept that this whole ‘positive thinking’ ain’t so bad after all, and after speaking to her I was reminded that many people do in fact rather see the glass as half empty rather than half full.

As far as I can remember, I’ve always considered myself very lucky. Am I lucky because I think I am, or am I lucky because of  continuous happy accidents, that could happen to anyone? I have many stories and examples from my own life which support my theory that you can get anything you want in this world if you think about it the right way. I am not going to go in to a lengthy discussion on the science of positivity, how to re-wire your thinking or the law of attraction. I just wanted to remind you to think about all the good things in your life today. In fact, I would suggest you do that everyday.

Training yourself to turn “bad” situations into good can be hard work if you’ve spent a lifetime thinking about the negative stuff. But perhaps just try and change some simple things, like smiling when perhaps your natural instinct would be not to. Just you know, don’t try that at a funeral. I would love to write more about this in the future and I probably will – complete with absurd stories and all, but for now, this grateful betch has to go and catch a train to Paris! Thank you , Universe, for all the awesomeness.

“Of course there must be lots of Magic in the world,” he said wisely one day, “but people don’t know what it is like or how to make it. Perhaps the beginning is just to say nice things are going to happen until you make them happen. I am going to try and experiment.”

  1. Love this mentality – I do the same thing, but I don’t think I have ever really realised that it is what I try to do. It can be exhausting sometimes when people around you are being down, or you are in a really foul mood and you have to try and drag yourself out of it, but I do believe that the reason I seem to have the luck of a maneki-neko is due to the positivity thinking! Lovely blog by way!
