The Law of Attraction

Last week I started listening to Jen Sincero's YOU ARE A BADASS AT MAKING MONEY while I was driving to my day job. I starting thinking more and more about the Law of Attraction. I thought her book was encouraging, and was like a little crew of cheerleaders in my ear every morning. Who loves money? I love money. Money loves me. and all that good stuff. (Give it a shot before pooh-poohing it.) 

If nothing else, her book made me think. I thought about how I saw the universe and its layers of life when I was a teenager (a theory that was thought up myself - that in itself was creepy, as there was no influence from others that lead me to think that way) and how I used to escape from the world by sitting in the dark and "meditating"... back then, I was speaking to the "universe" and all things out there, asking for the things I wanted. And even though I didn't receive a car, or a winning lottery ticket, I do remember having amazing luck, and getting a lot of what I desired. I thought I worked hard, had a horseshoe up my arse, and that was the way the world was. Years go by, and I land on my feet time and time again, restarting my life, and never looking back for a handout. I thought, again, that it had more to do with luck than anything else. 

And then I read this book. 

I haven't done the exercises yet - I will, and I will talk about this later. But I realized that all of what had happened over the first three decades of my life, or at least the last twenty years, was much of the law of attraction, not luck or being in the right place at the right time. Once upon a time, I was much more in-tune with the universe, and I had no idea what that meant, or how to do it. Now, you see it everywhere, and I am less in-tune than ever. 

One day I will go into more detail about the decade I lost to a psycopath ex-roomie, but in the meantime, I want to focus on reconnecting with the world, taking time to establish the specifics of what I want, or like people now seem to say, establishing what I already have and will receive. 

I want to know - did you read this book? Did you like it? Agree with it? What were your thoughts? 

I am on reading #2 of the book, and this time, I will be taking note of the exercises and the mantras that she says will help me reconnect with life. 

In the last week, one could say that I have "attracted" a free bag of licorice (thanks, Dawn), a box of chocolates from a grateful client, enough donations for my CIBC Run for the Cure  entry (please donate or sponsor me if you can - every dollar helps), a free play lottery ticket, oranges gifted to me, and more. While it's not specifically money, I am grateful for the universe gifting me things that save me money and for supporting others through me. I am working hard at redirecting more my way, so that I can share with others, and I want to know what works for you.

Vacation Tales #2: More Nostril Flaring Fun!

Part Two of Vacation Tales:
Oh yes, my darling senior dog had indeed marked my bag. He did the same thing one year ago, just prior to our departure, and managed to sneak it by me until I was at the airport and noticed something funky-smelling… anyways, I digress. We caught it early enough that it was cleanable, and off we go.
It’s a short drive to the airport; about an hour or so. We left the house at 2:30 am, and arrived at the location where we park our car for the week. We had a lovely surprise that our coupon from booking with Sunwing afforded us a low rate of parking for the week (only $60, win!) and they shuttled us to the airport in a prompt manner.
We checked in, and all was well. In due course, we were on the plane, and headed to paradise.
So we thought.
Let’s take a quick tally of the flight: *Plane running a few minutes behind? Check. *Full flight? Check. *Baby on board who cries for take off? Check. *Belligerent man sitting behind us who was louder than a demanding child? C…

Vacation Tales 1: Nostril-flaring fun

I am back! We arrived back in Canada last night, and what an interesting time we had. In many ways, it was wonderful. In others, your head will shake, your nostrils will flare, and you will be happy that you are reading about my adventure, and not yours! My last post was written at a coffee shop, and that evening, I returned home to find issues with my internet service. It continued on and off until the weekend of the 11th and 12th. For those of you who follow me on Twitter and Instagram, you may have seen my post about exchanging equipment at the local internet provider’s storefront. To my surprise, I received an actual response from the company via Twitter where they actually made an online attempt to “assist me”. TLDR: nothing was accomplished by switching out the modem, and services were down until the technician arrived on Wednesday.
Thursday morning at 6:15 am we were scheduled Let’s try that again.
After much planning and saving, we were able to book a week away. We chose a 4* t…
