Proving that I am Lucky

In trying to think more positively, I have also adopted an “I am lucky” mantra/attitude. It is usually very easy to moan and complain that you are unlucky, or that you never win anything.  I used to be one of those people.  However, I used to hate hearing people say that.  In fact I still do.

Several members of my family are like that and I ask them if they believe that, why do they play the lottery? I also ask them what it costs to think positively.  I am trying to trick them into thinking positively.  I mean, if you think you are lucky, but don’t win anything, then you are just proven wrong.  If you think you are unlucky and don’t win anything, then you are proven right. I think I would rather be proven wrong.  Better yet, I would like to think I am lucky and be proven right.

What does all this mean? Well, I have a little story to tell you.

A few weeks ago, I entered a contest with the Boursin cheese brand and I won. I won a picnic basket, a blanket, a cutting board, plastic wine glasses, gift certificates for more delicious Boursin cheese, some gift cards for food, and some gift cards to buy some wine.  I guess the Boursin people want me to have a devilishly good picnic.  I also got a fantastic Bluetooth speaker.

In all honesty, the contest had some glitches, but it worked out for me in the end. The staff members at the company are to be commended for the way they handled the problem with clarity, precision, and friendliness.

As for me, I feel quite vindicated in my positive thinking. So now, when you hear me say that I am lucky, you’d better believe it.
