Remember to Say Please

I promise not to go all Zen Buddha on you, but I have to tell you, when you ask the Universe, politely, to give you something it will. I promise. It works. Read and see.

I took a long drive the other day. I had an awful headache. The kind that feels like a knife is in your temple trying to cut your eye out headache. Ever have one of those? I don’t recommend trying it. Those headaches aren’t for amateurs. Anyway, I was past the rest stop so I was going to have to wait until I got off the Parkway to get a Diet Coke. I knew exactly the gas station I’d pull up to and get my soda so I could down a few Advil. I thought, please just let me make it to the gas station. When I pulled up to the pump the attendant said, “hello. Would you like a Coke, Diet Coke or Sprite?”

Amazing! Never in the 1,000,000 times I have gone to a gas station has anyone ever asked me that.

So I started thinking. What else could I ask for? Please let me out of a lunch date with a friend. Bingo, friend cancels. This ask and you shall receive stuff is pretty good, but I didn’t want to overdue it and seem unappreciative. Kind of like the kids do when they ask for something new five minutes after they just got something. Like please, please, more video time.

I would like to ask for calorie free dark chocolate and salted caramel candy. Or ice cream every day without any repercussions. Maybe I could ask for longer school days (so I can spend more time writing and eating candy) and a housekeeper. I always wanted Alice from the Brady Bunch to come live with me. But my Alice can drive!

Go ahead ask the Universe for something. Let me know what happens. Just remember to say please.

  1. “Please” does work miracles. Even with folks who aren’t G-d. 😉 Gotta think what I’m going to ask for…

  2. I’m a firm believer that, for me, God, gives me exactly what I need when I need it. That’s not to be confused with when I want it, but all usually works out. Great post!
