Funny How The Universe Works

About six months before my wedding, I decided that I really wanted to join a gym. I'm not usually a fan of gyms, but I wanted to do some weights and classes to lose a few kilos for the big day.

I spent a day being shown around a number of establishments. There was one in particular that was really nice. It had new equipment, a large pool, nice bathrooms, a good class schedule and they even provided the clients with towels. The only problem, it was expensive. I didn't like any of the other gyms in my area, they were old and grungy which I knew wouldn't help my motivation.

While I was sitting at my computer, looking at my budget, an email arrived. I had won money from a Paypal promotion. Exactly the amount that the gym fees were going to cost me for the six months I was planning to join. How perfect was that! I took it as a sign and joined the next day.

For the last few weeks, I've been really stressing about the cost of going to see a doctor in Tokyo. I know going to see her is the right thing to do, but it will cost a couple of hundred for the train and another couple of hundred for the hotel (I'll need to be there for a few days).

Just now, I got an email from my sister to say that I've received a nice payout from my Australian health insurance provider because of a merger. The money will cover my costs to go to Tokyo.

How's that for a sign?

Yep, I also reckon that when all the signs are pointing in the same direction, it's best to follow them!!! Here's to your new fitness phase!!!
Oh, and I also gave you an award on my blog - don't worry - it's a no obligation award - you don't need to do anything or pass it on (I hate putting obligations like that onto people) unless you want to. So anyway, just thought I'd let you know! Cheers, Bec.

Oh, I got one of those payouts too. It was most pleasing.

Glad the universe is lining up a little bit for you.

Well deserved karma for a wonderful woman. :-)

You must have gotten on really well with the tooth fairy. It seems she's passed her favour for you onto the Gods of "perfectly timed cash payouts"! Good for you! It's nice to know the universe is so kind and willing :)
