Day 109 A bad thing happened that is actually a good thing

Today I did a silly thing. I left a bag of shopping - the most expensive items - at the checkout counter, and when I went back to get it, it had gone. Not been handed in. I was really upset at first, especially when the shop said there was nothing they could do. Then I thought - actually, my loss is someone's happy Xmas gain. And also, that bag contained a huge cheese - one that would no doubt have added pounds to me. :) So, even though it was a bad thing to have lost the shopping, in a small way, it is also a good thing, for my health, and a slice of good luck for someone else.

So now, I'm visualizing something great like that happening to me. A slice of unexpected luck.

And actually in a way it has. I got back from my fruitless trip to the store, and settled down to read blogs. And today Bitchcakes wrote about her becoming a runner. And that was so inspiring, and I'm thinking now, maybe I can do that too. Not run, but go for a walk perhaps tomorrow. Wayyy better than scoffing cheese!


  1. I really think it was your generosity of spirit, the way you wished well to the one who ended up with your cheese and stuff, that put you in the position to be open to receiving the positive vibes from Bitchcakes. Wow... that was a long sentence, LOL!

    Anyway, I admire how you turned it around, and know you will be blessed for having such a good attitude, which comes from a genuine good heart inside.


  2. Thank you Loretta, for the lovely comment. It did make me feel better for thinking of the loss as a wonderful gain for someone. Sliver linings in clouds!
