I have been looking for these two necklaces for nearly two years now. I bought these when I lived at home, but by the time I moved into my new apartment a few months later, they were gone. I know when I first moved all my stuff I had an idea of where I put them, but that memory faded away before I remembered to take them out put them somewhere safe.
I tore apart my closet at my apartment and at home on more than one occasion looking for these. And somewhere along the way, I even forgot about Hello Kitty, and was determined to just find the sewing machine necklace.
Okay, now here's the weird Oprah-y, crazy psychic part. This morning, as I was getting ready for the day, the thought of the sewing machine necklace flashed into my mind. It was just a little picture of the necklace and the thought that I really, really wanted to find it.
Then, this afternoon, as I was sorting through some fabric, I happened to look down into this magazine basket I keep by my couch. There, in the pocket, was a little gleaming chain. I believe my jaw actually dropped open when I reached in and pulled out my necklaces.
So, did I find it because I put that thought out into the world? Because I visualized what I wanted? That's the crazy Oprah-y part. Isn't that the whole premise of The Secret? I've only heard about it in passing, but it seems like something Oprah would be yakking about.
Now, I normally don't believe that kind of stuff, but it's such a weird coincidence. So, in the spirit of all that, I would like to say here and now that I would really, really like to win some money sometime soon.
Let's see if it works.
