The “Happy Thoughts” Experiment – Final thoughts and Giveaway -Winner announcement

What a journey we´ve had with this “Happy Thoughts” Experiment

But…I know, that no one is going to read my words here – You´re all simply going to scroll down to see, who won the Vulpine Familiar, isn´t that so? :p

So I guess I´ll start with that 🙂


I chose to use the tool Random Name Picker. I didn´t even know such a thing existed, how fun!

Out of all those who participated, I counted a total of four bloggers, that qualifies for the Vulpine Familiar Giveaway with a minimum of 7 posts during the two weeks – the only criteria that had to be met (Correct me, if I am wrong, please, then it is not my intention!)

 

Wrath, Leto, Eppu and Erik.

I so wish I could have done a stream or some kind of live event with this, but I am low techy techy, I apologize.

But, let´s spin the wheel, shall we!

… 🙂

I chose Cap´n Crackers, because everyone will be able to remember, which expansion he came from, and when we did this experiment. And I heard he will actually sit on your shoulder, if you /whistle at him. Pretty neat 🙂

I hope he will bring you joy. And if you ever find yourself feeling dragged down by the unconstructive negativity, just bring him out, and he will remind you, how powerful a positive mindset can be!


 

I hope none of you have him. If so, and if you are feeling generous yourself, you are more than welcome to pay him forward, of course. But I really hope none of you have him.

Get in touch with me at alunariasmail@gmail.com and inform me, if you wish to recieve a US or European code, and which e-mail I can use.

I discovered, you do not need to hand out your BattleNet info to me, if you feel uncomfortable with that; an e-mail will do just fine and the adoption is instant 🙂

Please let me know if you have any issues with it! It took me 4 conversations with Game Masters to get this to work, hah.

So I´d appreciate a headsup, also when it works, so I know it arrived safely.

The deadline for the adoption is one week from today, Wednesday, January 16th.



 

Final Thoughts

 

Here ends the “Happy Thoughts” – Experiment.

I am happy to say, that it had an impact of me, more than I thought it would, and I feel much more positive about the game now. Unfollowing a few YouTubers, staying away from all unconstructive negative comments and posts, carefully selecting how I spend my time, making small positive blog posts, read all of yours…It all contributed to a much greater positive mindset.

So thank you and enjoy your new companion, big or small!

Happy New Year and happy positive mindset 🙂

 


 

Look at Leto on this beautiful mount…

Absolutely gorgeous 🙂

Keep ´em coming – That sitting on the shoulder feature is beyond cool, hah 🙂

The World of Warcraft “You’re wrong!”- Challenge

Let’s have a Challenge!

Hopefully it will breed some positive thinking (Is that a correct expression even?).

 

I hope you will participate. And be at your best behaviour 😉

 

Basic rules are…

 

You mention something you dislike about World of Warcraft right now. It can be aaanything, anything at all.

Someone else then has to tell you, that you are wrong, and explain why the thing you mention is actually good for the game and the players.

Then they proceed and list a thing they dislike about the game, and await for the positive spin on that from someone else. And so on.

 

As an example:

 

“I hate the Azerite Necklace and how we cannot interact with it at all, like we could with the Legion Artifact Weapon.”

 

And answer to that could be:

 

“But my darling Alunaria, you could not be more wrong. The Azerite Necklace is genius, and it’s great, because we no longer have to chase AP endlessly, or click AP 100 times a day.”

 


 

Don’t make it too tough to argue 😉

And add rainbows and unicorns for fun, if you want. You can exaggerate for chuckles to get your point across too.

This is meant as a little, lighthearted sidekick post, because we all would love to have a positive mindset about things in the game, right? After all, we play it for enjoyment, and negativity rarely changes anything.

Some even say it’s a choice. I want to be more positive, and who knows, maybe this post will rub off on your mindset too. And mine 🙂

If not many respond, I will just have a monologue, I don’t mind! I’ll challenge myself every day then. You are more than welcome to do that yourself as well! :p

 


 

Alright, I will start easy.

 

“I hate how there is so much to do in WoW these days, I always feel as if I never finish anything!”

 

If no one responds within 24 hours to a statement, I will do it on my own!

 

The more positive spins the better though.

 


 

Enjoy your weekend and thanks so much for participating 🙂
