I was on a beach recently and it reminded me of a blog I wrote a few years ago. I hope you long-time readers won’t object; but I think this blog bears repeating because of the important message it contains.
I was taking a morning yoga class on the beach. The instructor started the class by saying, “Lie down. Relax. Breathe deeply. Feel the sunshine and gentle breezes. Listen to the birds.”
I was dutifully following her instructions when, “SPLATTT!!!” A sea gull flying overhead deemed my open left eye a good target.
“ARGHHHH!” I yelled, alarming all my relaxed classmates who sat up and burst into sympathetic laughter when they saw my soiled face and T-shirt.
A woman right behind me exclaimed, “Oh, that’s a sign of good luck!”
“Well, good luck to all of you!” I snorted as I marched away to clean up.
But sure enough, it did turn out to be a good luck charm, and a good day, despite the bad start. I found out I was getting a check from the Internal Revenue Service that I had not expected. I felt like I had just won a “Big Check” from Publishers Clearing House – which, alas, I’m not eligible to win since I’ve been employed by “the grand-daddy of sweepstakes” since 1981!
My wish for you is that The Bluebird of Happiness or some other good luck charm will appear for you. Maybe today is the day to try your luck at one or more of Publishers Clearing House’s network of websites where there are chances to “Play and Win” every day.
Wishing you the best of luck!
