Today is pay day and I stopped by the ATM on my way to work this morning. I was irritated by having to park in a very awkward space, but when I got out of the car there was a grimy old penny on the ground. I always have good luck on days when I pick up pennies. So pick it up I did, wondering what small blessing may come my way today. 

I know the act of picking up pennies has absolutely nothing to do with whatever events may unfold. What it does do though is change my perspective. I instantly know something good will come my way. I believe it is that assuredness that subconsciously allows me to recognize and appreciate whatever small occurrence I will ultimately attribute to the good fortune from picking up that penny.

I shouldn’t need to pick up a penny to invite positivity, but I’m sure glad I found one this morning.
