Often things happen and you benefit

I realized today that often things happen and you benefit.

Many people call this luck and say they believe in luck. I don’t believe in luck. I believe in being prepared and creating an environment that doesn’t require luck. Still, today things came together in an unexpected way.

Here is what happened. I wanted to add more protein to my diet so a few days ago I meant to order some Spirulina. I have used that in the past and had good results with it. While I was using it I never got sick for example. Yes, this might not mean anything but it is still a nice food to consume. Today I was putting in an order and I realized that I needed some men’s vitamins. I looked at a few and then I found one and it had Spirulina and everything else that I wanted. I was thrilled. Now in a few hours, it will be arriving at my doorstep.

Remember how I said that I wasn’t going to use a certain online retailer anymore since I had bad experiences and couldn’t trust it? With the new $100 delivery service and the store I bought from, I can have what I ordered in less than 3 hours. It is remarkable. I should have done this long ago. I am supporting the local businesses and not an abusive evil empire.

I think we often benefit from how things work out that we didn’t plan and we don’t acknowledge this. We take credit for things that we weren’t responsible for. I know that I have been very prepared and willing to find creative ways to make things happen. If you want something bad enough you will find a way to make it happen. That has been my experience in life.
