I'm not going to preach on a lot about this as I don't want to take away from the original intent of discussing the blog at hand, but I would be very careful of how you use such topics as gratitude and LoA to justify gambling. Playing cards games, is one thing, but playing for money can quickly spiral out of hand without you even realizing it.
Anyways, that's all I wanted to say. Just be careful and analyze things. True you might be grateful for the experience, but did you learn from it and would you repeat it again. Don't forget to ask these questions as well.
