Do you have friends, co-workers, relatives that you believe live a “charmed” life? Maybe you even are one of the lucky ones that live a charmed life.
For example, I had a co-worker whose position was eliminated with the nationwide Comcast reorganization. It just happened that the perfect position for him became available at just the right moment, and, although he and his wife had to relocate again, it was back to where their family is located. This same person was able to sell his house here within 1 week of listing it, and it sold for the asking price. He also found a house at his new location right away. This is a person who believes that his wife is the most wonderful person in the world and that he has wonderful (adult) children. He’s always positive and happy and upbeat.
So, does he have a charmed life because he’s truly blessed or because of his positive attitude?
Another example is my BFF. She has never aspired for too much in life. She has a nice husband, although it’s more of a friendship than a love match. She has a job, but has never wanted a “career”. She’s very content with her life and has a philosophy that everything happens for a reason, and that nothing that happens is BAD.
Again, is it her attitude that makes her life charmed?
I know that we all know people whose life we think of as perfect. I’m just wondering what I’ve done wrong as my life isn’t even close to perfect.
