I was very tempted to run out and buy a Lotto ticket as Galen Kindley suggested in a comment on my post yesterday. Since I’ve had this feeling something good was about to happen, one would naturally think I should cover all the bases. But there was only a small window of time when I had the car yesterday (since the hubby played bridge both afternoon and evening), and I would have had to change out of my sweats and comb my hair to be presentable in public. It wasn’t worth the trouble. Sorry, Galen, I was just too comfortable.
Not that a Lotto jackpot wouldn’t be most welcome, but the feeling I have doesn’t seem like a money thing, at least not up front. It feels more like winning free massages for a year, or having an agent call me up out of the blue instead of me having to write a gazillion query letters with no results, or receiving a box of free books I didn’t even order.
There was one lovely bonus in my e-mail. I subscribe to posts from Zen Habits and always enjoy what Leo Babauta and his guest bloggers have to say. Monday’s post was How to Live a Better Life With Less. It’s not a new concept, but there was something about the way Leo said it that sounded right to me. That’s why I shut down my computer and watched the DVD of Doubt last night instead of working. Don’t you just love Meryl Streep?
I’m still on watch for more good things. Maybe Helen Ginger‘s comment yesterday was right on the money. She said, “Keep enjoying the tingly powerful feeling. Either something big is going to happen or you’ll look back and be amazed at all the small great things.”
Small great things are just fine (but I’d still like to have a year’s worth of free massages).
