Just lately, we have been feeling that there's a lot of "good stuff" going on in our lives. It's a really nice way to feel too, as my partner and I have been through some tough times over the past few years.
I always felt it was mainly about money (ie. we never had enough) but looking back, it was more about other issues - The Truck (deserves a separate post by itself), my job dissatisfaction, C's business. But just lately, really good things are starting to happen.
It all started when I read The Secret last year. JUST KIDDING. Though I did actually read The Secret last year at the urging of a friend. I practiced the visualization techniques for a while, then forgot about them!
This year, however, things have really started getting on track for us. Good things that have happened to contribute to this positive feeling are:
- C proposed, and my parents offered to pay for the wedding (phew!)
- I got a new job
- The Pulsar got written off, so C finally had the means to fix The Truck, and it is now back on the road (the beast of a thing)
- We had a financial windfall, which will make a significant dent in our mortgage
Funny how these four things have made such a huge difference to my personal happiness. C is a pretty happy person anyway, he doesn't tend to worry about things like bills, mortgages, world hunger etc. like I do. But even he has expressed his amazement in the way things are going lately.
And you know what the greatest thing is? I just know that life is going to get better. I'm not sure how, but there are things coming up that are going to be fun (the wedding), amazing (the honeymoon) and interesting (who knows?). It's this feeling I have - that the good stuff is going to keep on rolling in. Wishful thinking? I hope not!
*yes, I took a photo of my own hand. Because I couldn't find any nice pics of a thumbs up, ok?!
