What Happens When You Lose Something?

Last Update: March 11, 2018

Hello Guys ‘n Dolls!

Happy Sunday!

So, I met a woman who happened to be waiting in a sitting area just like me. We struck up a conversation and she imparted a view that I never thought of before.

Here goes…

What happens when you lose something, especially when it something of value to you?

The way she chose to look at it was like this –

She thinks that whoever ‘finds’ the thing that she lost, needs it more than she does!

It was like a light bulb went on inside me…how magnificent a thought!

Indeed.

I am of the school of thought that everything happens for a reason and I live my life accordingly. And this meeting was by no means a ‘chance meeting’ but a ‘divine timing’ because I needed to change my way of thinking concerning things that I lose.

Have you ever thought of it like this?

Well, one thing is for sure, the next time I lose anything or even find something, then its time that it should be this way.

Namaste

Michelle

I once went to a gas station and realized that I had lost the 10 dollars that was in my pocket. I was a bit annoyed with my self but still had enough money to pay for gas.

Jump a year later, and I had a rough month after the bills were paid. It would have been nice to just have a little cushion for a rainy day. Well, fate must have been listening because I found a $100 dollar bill in the parking lot.

What the hell? Who finds a $100 bill in a parking lot? I looked around to see who might have dropped it, but no one was around. I waited to see if someone came out frantically rushing to where I found the bill, but no one did. I looked up and said, "Okay, thanks. Sorry for being so annoyed when you figured that someone else needed the 10 dollars more than I did."

True story. Your post made me remember it.

Thanks Pernilla,

You're right. sometimes losing something opens up the opportunity of gaining something even greater. We just don't know it at the time, only upon reflection.

Maybe what she lost is not what she needed.

That's also another way to look at it! Glass half or glass half empty?!

Mother always said that if you lose something that someone else needed it more than you did. Wow that brings back memories. Thanks for the post. Michael
