Today Doc and I stopped at Starbucks so he could get his morning coffee. I walked around that parking lot, then over to three nearby fast food and convenience stores. I was not exercising (nasty word); I was Penny Finding! Very unusual not to find any coins in those such places. So I said to the Penny Angels, “What’ up this morning? You sleeping in?” Immediately there was a shiny penny in my path. I laughed and responded, “OK. Thanks. That takes care of today’s find. Good to know you are there.”
Doc had not yet returned to the van, so I peeked around the corner of the building to look at the drive up window. As usual, there was a long line of cars there. My default negative thinking: “No way that I will get any coins from back here.” Wrong!” I stood back and looked around me - instead of focusing on the area underneath the pay window where I assumed coins would be. There was a penny a few feet away from me in the driveway! I spotted another, and another, and another … there were eleven pennies there! (Eleven is considered a spiritually significant number). Those coins, plus the first penny made it a Coin Mine!
As I was looking at tonight’s list of incoming emails, I could see only the first few (trailer) words of each message. There was one which made my heart jump: “Tina - Recently, you've been sending out emails…” my brain went racing to complete that sentence. It answered with all sorts of terribly negative options. I was disheartened (by my own doing) and afraid to open that email. Imagine my joy when I read instead:
“Tina - Recently, you've been sending out emails that stimulate thoughts on what inspires us individually... I keep getting wrapped up in negative thoughts. …. it's irritating for sure. I hope I can be inspired to… Your writings do make me think, and if I am thinking then others are too. Inspiration comes from seeing what others actually practice. So keep it coming.”
Wow! That was NICE to read. So WHY did I assume such horrible, negative things as my ‘default’ thoughts?
So much to learn -- and then implement more often!
Coin Count: 12 Pennies
