Well, I’d read The Secret several years ago and last month I picked up the sequel, The Power for fun and for a nice pick me up. Reading these books always lifts my spirits, so I went ahead yesterday and got the third book of the trilogy, The Magic.
The Magic focuses on giving thanks and gives some good activities to do so, a 28-day program really. I had just finished the first two things to do in the book — making a wish list basically, and then starting Day 1 of the program which is to learn to count your blessings.
Then an amazing thing happened. Just as I finished counting my blessings for the first day, I text message came in from The Athlete’s Foot. It turns out that a shoe I was looking for had just come into stock — the VFF KSO. However, on my “wish list” I had just noted I wanted a Spyridon model instead in green. So I went ahead and asked them if they had the Spyridon in stock instead, and they said yes! It was available, and precisely in my size!
How’s that for fast service from The Universe? I’ll be dropping by The Athlete’s Foot later to pick up what the Universe served up to me on a shiny platter. It’s amazing what gratitude can do. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
