Pagan savings challenge, week twenty-eight: hand of fate

Who hasn't had the experience of one's life being massively altered by some external force?  I'm calling it the "hand of fate" as a shorthand, but your own experience may have felt like the hand of a particular deity, or the force of random luck.  A lot of money events fall into that category, like landing a well-paying job or ending up homeless through a series of unfortunate events.  Particularly when things aren't going your way, those events can make you feel powerless.

Unexpected expenses can eat up the money from your Pagan savings challenge, and make it darned near impossible to raise enough energy for your goal.  But if you were able to avert something bad by using money you'd saved . . . that's actually part of the point of this exercise.  Congratulations:  you now have a saving habit, and with it you raised enough energy to avert the hand of fate.

My week twenty-eight savings:  $406, 6.8% ($28) of which I added today.
