365 Appreciation Project

Today I’m grateful for winning a bottle of wine. But it’s not just about having a bottle of wine to enjoy, which is great, but also about how I came to win the wine.

I was attending a networking breakfast this morning. I hadn’t realised it would carry on as long as it did, and had scheduled a shoot for 10:30. The meeting went on until 11:00. Fortunately, hair and makeup needed to be done, so I knew I still had some wiggle room. Rather than rushing off before the end of the lucky draw part of the morning, I told myself to hand on a bit longer, because I had to get the prize that I was going to win. And I did. I love it when that happens, and it’s surprising how often it happens like that. Gratitude is clearly a powerful thing. And BTW, I made it to the shoot on time.
