What Do You Expect?
Come on in.
I’ve just got a cup of tea, so I thought I’d sit and discuss some philosophy with you. And as is my bent, it is philosophy about the Law of Attraction.
My brother and I have the ability to talk fluently and entertainingly about absolutely nothing. This is a skill that we continuously work on and practice a lot, always with much laughter.
One evening we were driving to attend a concert where my sister in law and niece where performing. It was a jolly journey with quick moving conversation that included talk of bikes, shoes and elves. It was fun and we laughed a lot.
When we walked into the concert hall, there was a raffle (there is always a raffle) – and the main prise was a lady’s bike.
Now my son is over enthusiastic about fitness and he often chides me gently, about not doing any. When I saw the bike, I burst out laughing. The Universe has a great sense of humour and I knew I would win the bike. I bought a ticket and I just knew I would win that bike. I had a great feeling of expectation.
However as the concert progressed, I began to doubt where I wanted it or not. If I had it, it would give my son even more reason to nag me about exercise. So my expectation of winning it began to wan. However, I still knew I would win something. I expected to win something.
The raffle draw came – I didn’t win the first prise of the bike. But I was extremely interested in what I would win.
I won the booby prise! It is a 25cm tall, plastic table decoration – and I wonder if you’ve guessed it? It is an elf on a bike! He’s a real cutie.
I just love the Universe. It has such a great sense of humour!
I’ll have to tell you about how important Expectation is next time, as this blog is too long already!
