Reflecting on one's winning.
WINNING A LOTTERY
Have you ever wondered what the fascination is with winning a lottery?
Particularly one that is about money?
People ask each other, "What would you do with 10 million dollars?"
So, what would you do?
When you put some really deep thinking into this question it is not that easy to answer.
Now I'll ask you another question.
What is your first thought upon rising and facing a new day?
Do you feel miserable and discouraged that you have to face yet another day?
Or, do you bound out of bed thankful that you are alive?
Do you feel happy and lucky that you've been given another chance to live, learn, and laugh?
FACT IS - You've just won the Life Lottery.
What you've won is 24 hours, or 1440 minutes, or 86,400 seconds - depending on how you look at it.
Now what will you do with your winnings?
Spend wisely - but spend and enjoy your day.
Maximize every one of those winning seconds because once they're gone, they are gone forever.
Everyday you have the chance of waking up as a winner of the Life Lottery.
If you are one of the lucky ones that actually wins, by waking up tomorrow, remember this:
No amount of money, fame or good looks guarantees a winning ticket in Life's Lottery.
Every time you open your eyes at the start of every new day - you have won the Life Lottery!
Good luck and I hope your winning streak continues - for a long, long time!
Now, what was it you wanted with that 10 million?
PS I wrote the original version of this back in 2010. It never grows old - well, not like me anyway. Fortunately I’ve been winning the Life Lottery for quite some time. I hope my lucky streak keeps on going.
