I haven't won a dang thing in four years.  Guess it's time for a long break.

I also go years without winning. Hopefully a nice win is coming soon. Good luck.

Because our Sweepy family is wonderful.  Hang in there and hopefully you'll have a big one soon.  Also, love the avatar... your dog looks just like the one my mom used to have.

Right there with ya, mimireco! I've entered thousands of sweeps and have never gotten a big win, just silly stuff like pistachio-shaped earmuffs and a collapsible water bottle. Exasperating!
Loving the thrill of the hunt!

It is a good thing to take a break when entering does not bring you joy. If you are entering and feeling mad or depressed that you have no wins... that negative energy just pushes away your luck. Take a break.... and come back when you feel rested. It is a vacation of sorts for working so hard on entering...  when you return you will feel refreshed and positive and ready to win again.

Taking a break is a good thing. Just say so long and not goodbye and come back to us. You will feel reguvinated. Hobbies should make you smile. That will happen for you. You just need a breather. Good luck.   Beth

A break can always give us a new perspective (spelling) on our hobby.

Truth be told, I have had those times when I grouched around the house because my wins were down or non-existant.  I have even won something one day and grumbled the next day because I did not win.

When that happens, I break out the chocolate and munch away.  I may go to the movies just to get away from the computer.

On the other hand, I have several ST friends that share their wins and that is second best to winning myself.
