A year ago I could have won a million dollars. You know what the most amazing thing is... I'm happy I didn't. The final contest never happened and the million dollar prize was never awarded. It makes me shutter to think about what it might be like if the contest had gone through and I ended up winning a million dollars.
Imagine it for a second. This was BEFORE Hoop City. If I had won a million dollars on the first of January, TWO WEEKS before creating Hoop City........... who knows what would have happened? I would have used the money to go travelling and gotten distracted and likely never would have discovered a way to make Hoop City a reality. It makes me nauseous just thinking about it. Thank God I didn't win that money. There's no way it would have compared to this.
We are so blessed in life without seeing it. The universe has quite the sense of humour and uses a sick way of unfolding things in ways that make us feel defeated or that we've lost something when in reality our "loss" is really a catalyst to something greater."
