Powerball Fever

Are you lottery player? I cannot say that I am except in two situations. How could I live with myself if I didn’t participate in the office Powerball tickets? I mean if I was the only one to show up to work the next day it would be like adding salt to the wound… no money and everyone’s workload would fall on me. So needless to say, I contributed my share to this week’s mega drawing and we all showed up the next day to work ~ no lottery winners here. The second situation when I sometimes play is on the proverbial road trip. For some reason as I set out on a long drive it has become a tradition to get a few scratch lotto tickets at a gas station along the way. Both situations tend to leave me a few dollars poorer but for those hours leading up to the mega drawing or those seconds it takes to scratch the ticket I think about what I would do if I won. Thankfully, there about two times a year that I have that thought. While it would be great to be that one in a million lucky winner the odds aren’t in my favor. I would much rather spend my time and money pursuing what is in my control. I think in the long run I may do less “wishing and hoping” and more planning and experiencing. It is Friday so I challenge us all to do something this weekend that makes us feel like the numbers add up and that we are indeed winners.
