“I’ve been merrily following along releasing during this course.  While listening to people’s gains about how they’re happier, things don’t bother them anymore, etc., I thought, “that’s nice, good for them, but SHOW ME THE MONEY!” Several days later, a $10,000 check arrived in the mail.  It was from my dad and he said it was because I was the only one who hadn’t dipped into the family reserve (I hadn’t even known there was a family reserve). My mind tried the old trick of saying it was just a coincidence and it would have happened anyway so it wasn’t a real gain.  But the timing was too suspicious so I consider it a bona fide gain.”
