Things just got better today when I put my 40 cents in the coffee machine [yes I’ve ventured into the dangerous waters of hot beverages again!] and cha ching! Money started pouring out the change slot faster than I could catch it. Score! [It’s about time that darn machine paid off! I’ve plugged enough money in it over the years! ] I grabbed a spare cup and caught as much as I could before the little change flap jammed and the coins stopped cascading out! No, I didn’t keep the loot. I called the vending company and they came and fixed it. And even though I never did get my cup of coffee, I got a giggle out of the I-Love-Lucy-esque predicament I found myself in.
Just goes to show that just when you think The Universe is out to get you and you’ve been kicked around as much as football at the World Cup finals, It picks you up, dusts you off and shines on you again! Problems are all in the interpretation. I just finished reading The Secret, which as it turns out is no secret at all; like attracts like…birds of a feather and all that. But it was a good reminder that it’s MY attitude that determines how my day will go.
My friend Rob has been collecting little quotes and experiences of things that inspire him and make him smile and posting them on his site. I think I’ll try to do the same. Here is my first ‘quote of the day’:
