Well that stands to reason, optimistic people get what they want because they believe they will. I've always been like this and I make things happen, set them as goals..now this works when the subject is achievable with money or hard work but to will a person into your life...or is it a matter of wanting it so your eyes are wider open and looking for it?
I admit, I spend days seeing people but not really seeing them, I talk to loads of people everyday but not really fully take that person in because I am otherwise preoccupied with other matters at work etc. This is why, I forget peoples names and faces all the time. My work mate on the other hand remembers every single person by name and face, this blows me away as currently she is holding more than 500 peoples names in her head!!!
Well time will tell, I do believe it as the last time I did something similar to this I met the guy I spent the next year and a half with...but I've definitely changed what I am asking for this time lol
