I’m going to mark this goal as ‘done’. I haven’t won any money (yet) but nonetheless I feel that I’ve still “won”.
Something had urged me to set this goal despite knowing at the time there was little I could do towards achieving it beyond buying lottery tickets.
At the time I’d recently applied for a job at a local hospice. Reading through their website I discovered it had been set up in memory of a young woman who had died at almost the same age and at almost the same time as my sister: almost thirty years ago now. I also discovered all kinds of wonderful ways in which I might contribute to their fundraising, including a lottery – which in itself raises in excess of £100,000 per year – and I’ve now set up a direct debit.
I’ve not lived in this part of the country for long. It feels good to be contributing to a local cause, set up and run by and for local people. Whether I win any money is entirely incidental; I’ve gained in other ways :) 5 years ago
