We’re already almost two weeks into 2020 now. Gee, time goes fast.
I thought I should keep you up to date with this ”Tinking positive” kinda resolution I took for the new year (decade?). I must say, I was the first to doubt that it would make a noticeable difference. I did believe that a positive attitude couldn’t hurt, but I didn’t think it would actually affect my ”luck”.
If you read my previous Just thinking post, it was inspired by a post from Amanda of Something to Ponder About. Her Happy Lucky New Year article.
So… What’s the outcome of making an effort to simply be optimistic (sometimes forcing myself to be, even if I didn’t really think it would make a difference)?
For one thing, I was supposed to be forced to give training to a new employee at my job, which I really didn’t want to do. I had decided to just let go and hope for the best, and a couple of days back, I learnt that I was off the hook. Yay!!
In a couple of weeks, Chéri and I will be flying to Australia. One of our struggles was that we had to find a babysitter for Freja, who isn’t too keen on traveling long distance (we were thinking about leaving her to the care of Chéri’s parents, who live one and a half hours away from Montréal). But, tadaaaah! Not asking for anything, my friend and neighbour postponed adopting a new cat and will take of our little furball during our vacation! Double Yay!!
Last but not least, I recently contacted a friend-blogger living in Australia, to ask for a little help in our trip planning. I was thrilled to read that they were also interested in spending a couple of days together, exploring their area of Aussiland! This should be an amazing experience, and I bet you’ll have the chance to see and read more about that unlikely across the planet encounter, both here in The Cove, and in that very special person’s blog. (OMG I am so excited!!)
So… I must say that I was a bit skeptical at first, but let alone a couple of minor bad news, 2020 has been kind so far. Way more than I would have expected.
Mere luck? Maybe… But then again, maybe not!
