There is an old folklore rhyme that a penny found will bring good luck to the finder for the entire day. It is a belief that many of us carry within us.
Buried deep within our subconscious thought a found lucky copper coin brings luck while a penny tossed into water will bring with its tossing the blessing of a wish that now has the opportunity to become real.
There is something magically lucky in a penny that other coins just cannot equal up to. Pennies are wishes and wishes have the ability to change the world.
For a young child that copper coin is a wealth of dreams and possibilities and although many adults may not admit it that little copper coin brings hope to them too. When tossed into a wishing well the magic truly does come through.

The Magic of Dreams Cannot be Under Stated a Wish is Hope
Having a lucky penny to toss into a wishing well can mean that one's most desired wish just may come true. Having two or three magic pennies can mean an entire afternoon of hopes and dreams as you decide how best to bestow the perfect wishes onto each magic coin.
No matter how you view the concept of wishing wells and lucky pennies, these tossed away coins can mean hope and inspiration to someone who otherwise would have none.
These magical coins have the power within them to change a person's life and more importantly to change a person's attitude toward their life.
Where Do All Those Magical Wishes Go?
Each of the copper pennies that you toss into a wishing well will go to support someone in need. Often this money remains within the local community to help improve the circumstance of those who live there.
The money may also be used to provide support for those who live in under developed countries far from home. Used for those who are far less fortunate than ourselves.
Those beautiful shiny pennies can be magically transformed into food, shelter, and medicines. They can be used to purchase computers, books, and educational materials for those who might otherwise not have access to these very important learning tools. The money may be used to feed animals at a local shelter or to provide spay or neuter programs. There are many charities that benefit from the money gifted into a wishing well.
Never think that one penny cannot make a difference in the big scheme of things because when that one little penny is added to another, and then to another, it can have a tremendous impact. That one penny becomes ten pennies, and then a dollar, then a hundred dollars, a thousand, and upwards from there. That one small penny has the ability to change the life of someone in need.

Let Your Endorphins Out To Play
When you participate in pleasurable activities like smiling, laughing, exercising or playing, your brain does an amazing thing and releases a little chemical message known as an endorphin.
These endorphins are feel good messages that have the power to actually remove physical and emotional pain. They travel down the spine and then throughout the body sending a feeling of well being as they go.
These endorphins not only have the ability to relieve pain but they also have the power to make you feel happy. So remember to take time to play - It really is important.
