Years ago, during a very difficult time in my life, I went to a place I always go to for comfort
and clarity: I took a walk on the beach.
It was a cool, rainy day, and the clouds above hung so low I felt I could reach out and touch them.
As I slogged through the sand, I thought about my life and the challenges I faced. With each step
I felt the weight of anxiety that traveled with me. Then, I noticed something shiny sticking out
of the sand.
I reached down and pulled out a smooth, clear crystal with the word “lucky” lettered in silver.
It stopped me in my tracks. A crystal in the sand polished by the sea? With the word lucky on it? Really? I wondered about the chances of finding such an extraordinary gift. I actually looked
around expecting to see an angel.
That day I made a decision to form a powerful, new belief: I am the luckiest girl in the world.
From that moment on, every time I saw or touched that crystal (and I carried it with me everywhere), I repeated this belief over and over in my head. It wasn’t long after that my life
started to change... Cheryl Richardson
