I used this last week. The washing machine had packed up (again!) and as I rang the insurance/service company they told me nothing could be done until the following Monday ( when I'm back at work) . This week I was on half term and didn't want to miss a day's work just to wait in for a repair man. Instead of focusing on the "not working-ness" of the machine, instead I distracted myself with music and computer games and thought " wouldn't it be nice if there was a cancellation and in fact they sent the repair man this week? The next day, first thing in the morning, I received a call saying there had indeed been a cancellation and would I like the repair man to visit today?
Yes, a small thing in the scheme of things, but I think it's important to keep a record of smaller manifestations to encourage ourselves if we have an *off* day.
A friend said to me " well, it's a coincidence!" but well really? lol
