I spent the afternoon with my Mom yesterday. We went over t0 Windsor, Ontario to the Caesar's Casino. It was an early birthday present for me. I came back with $5.00 more that what I had started out with (money that Mom and the bus tour had given me). So I did rather well there. I had fun and made money!
But, I came back to a low tire. And I had just had 4 pounds put into in at the beginning of the week. So, now I am headed to the tire place to have it checked out. I don't know if it's a rim leak or a puncture or if I will need a new tire. (The tread looks good.) So much for having a little bit of money to pay bills with! Most people say they take one step forward, two steps back. With me, it feels like one step forward, ten steps back.
I have read that we make our own luck in life. It goes better for us if we have a positive attitude. I am just having trouble lately taking what I have read and applying it to my own life. I need to re-read these articles and see if I can work on that a little.
