Which is, I’m sure, related to the Law of Attraction. Deidre and I are visualising and emotionalising greater prosperity in our lives, bringing more money into it, etc. We want better things for ourselves and our lifestyle, and our future.
The funny thing that’s happening – just this past week – is that we’re getting occasional unexpected savings on our spending.
I took the car for a car wash a couple nights ago. I went to the service station only for a car wash. As I was about to walk in the door, one of the attendants approached and handed me a voucher – for half price car washes. He was handing them out to everyone walking through the door. No one else, while I was there, accepted it. I paid half price, and left for the car wash. When I finished the car wash, I looked back at the attendant, but he wasn’t anywhere to be seen.
Yesterday I took the car for a major service. It was going to cost $1400 – just for a service, including labour and parts. But it was a service that I hadn’t gotten for maybe three years, as I wasn’t able to justify spending that much money. Having a BMW is expensive… First, I had the money to spend on the service, so I got it done. Secondly, at the end of the day it turned out to be only $800. They decided not to do the transmission service because it required the replacement of a leaky gasket and that would take longer than the time they had available. The extra transmission work was something I knew about, and was going to comprise $400 of the $1400. Somehow, I ended up not paying that and getting another $200 taken off the total. I wasn’t going to question it!
The transmission needs to be done, I know that. But there’s no urgency. It can wait. Instead, the $600 I saved on the service will be spent to pay off one of my debts, thus getting rid of it..
Today Deidre and I went out for brunch. We have an ‘entertainment card’ that gets you discounts on establishments that are part of the program. We went to a cafe, placed our order, and got one meal free with the entertainment card. As we expected. What we didn’t expect, however, was that my meal – pancakes with bacon, banana and maple syrup – would have uncooked pancakes. I ate the bacon and banana, leaving the gluggy pancakes, and then returned it to them, saying the pancakes were uncooked. My intention was just to let them know of less-than-adequate service, but they gave me a refund of the price of the meal. So in the end, we got two breakfasts – even though I only ate half of mine – and two orange juices for the price of only two orange juices.
Small incident, obviously, but I think the law of attraction – attracting greater prosperity – is beginning to work in our favour. This week alone has resulted in the ‘obtaining’ of many hundreds of dollars, that we’ve put to good use to make our financial situation that much better, and bringing us closer to having our own house soon.
