Just put it out there, go ahead....don't be shy

I was simply perusing Etsy, minding my own business

I came upon a wonderful book (umm, no, not the one you see here) and it jogged my memory of a couple of years ago at the coast.....at my favorite antique store Yankee Trader. See, she had a copy of this book called 'Vitalogy'. It was pretty cool but I didn't buy it. Been kicking myself ever since because every time I see a copy they cost a small fortune. And you all know what a cheapskate I am by now!

So I'm looking on Etsy, just a random looking around type of thing and came upon a book that reminded me of this fab book. Of course it was out of my price range but it got me to thinking.
Hmm, what are the odds I'll EVER find my own copy of this phenomenal book? 

See, I've always loved medical things, beakers, books, instruments, doctors bags, etc. I even wanted to be a heart surgeon for one day in college....til I found out how much you had to study and that put a quick end to that idea.

Hey look, a pop-up!!!!!!
Anyway, I was at St. Vinnies and decided to have a look-see in their locked cases....you know the ones where they keep their "special" books (that means expensive).
My eyes kept going down down down to the very bottom of the case and what did I spy?
VITALOGY
Found a young man to open up the case for me (I was all a-twitter at this point).
It now resides in my home.....gosh I don't think I can ever sell this beauty, though I'm sure it would fetch a pretty penny.
Some things are just meant to be......
I'm finding it just a little bit creepy that this has happened so much to me lately....things I've thought long and hard on have appeared in the strangest ways.
Does this happen to you too?
Go ahead and give it a try....put those vibes out there and see what comes back to you.
And I'm not just talking about material things either, I'm talking about more esoteric things like feelings, attitudes, etc.
You know, good vibes.
I know I'll be trying it more often.
The power of positive thought....it can move mountains.

WOW, Gail.
You are one lucky vibin' gal!!!

It used to happen a lot when I scoured thrifts and you would hope to find one thing and end up finding 3 or 4 of the same thing all in a day of thrifting.

But finding such an unusual book is pretty far out there. You have some pretty positive thoughts!

I have always thought, if it was meant to be yours, you will find it.
It's true with me, I just need to be more patient.
