Law of attraction | Thriftanista in the City

Law of attraction

I'm about to go random and out the box on you. I've been pretty good about sticking with my niche. A year or so ago, I was pretty random all the time. If you're new here, you missed it! Back then I had a handful of musing on the law of attraction. Today, I'm sharing a story that feeds my belief in Ask. Believe. Receive.

City Winery is new to the Chicago area and I had been wanting to check it out after watching a segment of 190N which prompted me to check out the website. On the website, a particular concert caught my eye. It was Acoustic Africa with Manou Gallo (of Zap Mama)! I'm a huge fan of Zap Mama so naturally I wanted to go. Since I spend all of my money thrifting (kidding, a little), I knew the tickets were not in my budget. Next I went to their fan and twitter page because I wanted to keep track of upcoming news. That's where I read that they were giving away tickets to the show. I entered and won! See how that works? I devoted a lot of energy to this one event. (SN: I was also really thirsty for a date night as we haven't been out together sans V since my birthday in June). 

This isn't a super deep or life changing story just something to remind me how powerful the mind is. Focus on what you want and you can attract it to you. I find small things like this so easy to imagine but it's hard for me to go bigger. I really should. I've lost sight and focus on a few goals this year and that's a whole other story.

Do you believe in the law of attraction? Does it work in your life?
Do you like my skirt? Live music? Wine? Weekends?

Btw, the concert was amazing! The service and food...not so amazing. They have some kinks to work out.

Yes, yes I adore your shirt! And I also believe in the law of attraction. I'm focusing on starting my own business and little small nuggets of information seem to just fall in my lap.

Hugs and Mocha,

Yes to all of your questions, LOL! Love the skirt, wine, weekends and I am a BIG believer in the law of attraction!!! It works in my life. I read The Secret at least once a year just to remind myself to remain positive in all things.

Hiya,

I think you look stunning!

I love your story on the Law of Attraction. This is something which I am still working on, however I do believe its working - in small ways. The other day I searched the recipe channels for Macaroon recipes (as I absolutely love them). I was really adamant that I would make them for dessert. Well on the same day, my mum brought them home and said that a work colleague had made them that same day!
How crazy is that.

Small example but just goes to show! ;)

Love LiLi Xx

Yes, I do like your skirt...& weekends too! ;) You look pretty!
I'm not sure if I believe in LOA. I think it's important to think positively, but that will only take us so far. Thinking positively + a little bit of action...now that's the ticket! ...As you already know. ;) Way to go!!!
