I secretly think I have the power to influence future events. I spent the last few days brooding about a job I would have to do tomorrow and monday, wishing deep down that I wouldn't have to. Today, I called one of the guys I was working for to get my call time, and he told me that the guy who actually gave me the 2 days overbooked and I was pulled from the call, instead now I would possibly be on the 4th and 5th. I just didn't want to work tonight and tomorrow, this new outcome is almost exactly what I had hoped for.
This isn't the first occurence either. When I was younger, I had lent my copy of earthbound to a good friend, who had been holding onto it for a real long while. One day, I was sort of down and really upset and almost started to cry about not having the game out of nowhere (I was 7). Literally, I was lying in my bed wishing I had it back. Not 10 minutes later, my buddy's older brother comes over with the game, just like that. And another time, I was sitting at a little deli by my house and was really tossing around the idea of buying a game, Breath of Fire III. I didn't have enough money, and I really didn't want to beg my parents at the time for it, so I bought a lottery ticket (illegally, I was a minor). Sure enough, I sat there and hoped to win a couple bucks, and I won 50 dollars. Walked down the block, bought the game, and even had some cash left over for a slurppy at 7-11.
I have other circumstances where it's conceivable that this "power" is more than a freak coincidence, like travelling to a destination in midtown manhattan at 9am on a monday morning and hoping there is no traffic, which almost never happens except for when I hoped for it. It's weird, I don't believe in supernatural crap and such, but this happens alot. When my mom was diagnosed with stage iv lung cancer, doctors said a couple months maybe. I didn't hope she would get magically better, but I did hope.that she would firat, make it past xmas (she did) and later on, when it got really bad, I silenty hoped that of all things, please don't let her die on my hirthday. She was close to, but thankfully, missed it by a few days after. I even got a happy birthday from her, which was one of the last coherent things she said to me (heavily drugged). Again, I don't believe in supernatural heebie jeebies, but this is definitely not random occurence at work here.
Of course, still haven't won that million dollar jackpot yet either.
