...the power of positive thinking. Good things in life happen to those who allow them to happen. Bad things in life happen to those who allow them to happen. I double check locks, doors, school and work assignments and tasks, and I try to never count my chickens before they hatch. Maybe call me superstitious, but I believe that thinking about a possibility before it is certain ruins your chances of that possibility actually happening. I try not to brag or tell people about interviews or job offers that I have received, so if I don't actually take the job, I don't look like a overconfident idiot.
I am very content and somewhat proud of everything that I have accomplished in my life. I feel like everything I have received is because I took the steps necessary to reach it. I try to open my life up to opportunities; I try to do certain things that might have beneficial consequences after the fact. In the same way, I try to be nice to people, mostly in fear that if I am mean to them, it will come back to bite me in the butt.
So maybe if I keep thinking positively about everything and not expecting too much before it happens, more good things will happen to me? I hope so; I wish the best for everyone else too!
