How do you feel when you finally win something?

Does it make you sad or upset if the people around you keep winning things but you do not? If you do win, do you feel great or does it depend on what you won? I have absolutely no luck winning anything until yesterday when I won a free lunch drawing at a nearby restaurant. They did give me a free meal so that was very nice and it was good. Up until yesterday, I wondered if I would ever win. My coworker wins stuff all the time and so do other people I know.

I never win stuff. may it be lottery or a lucky dip. but i am sure i will be overwhelmed if i do so. i believe things happen to us when we least expect and bring us the utmost joy.

I hope that you will win something very soon. I would rather win money but free food is not bad. Maybe you will win the lottery and can share your excitement with us here.

I remember that you won those items and I could not win anything on that site. LOL That was nice of you to give them away as I am sure someone is very happy.

I think people who win lots of stuff probably enter bunches of contests. Which might mean they win only half the time or less. Don't you think? Well, maybe. I did win a $10 gift certificate to Applebee's yesterday. That was a nice treat. Oh, by the way, after 9,000 discussions here on MyLot you deserve to win something.

It is the greatest feeling in the world to win something. I always feel like I am on cloud nine and I would not want to leave it when I do get there. It is just something else.

I have never been the jealous type so it would not bother me at all if people around me kept winning prizes and awards etcetera. Nevertheless, it is a great feeling to actually win something myself. The value or practicality of the prize seems far less important than the fact of actually winning, so I guess that is the child in me still managing to show through.

I have a cousin that wins things off the radio a lot. I would win things for a bit, then taper off, then come back strong down the road. Once I won first prize in this particular contest, and got some skin care products; I liked that. When I first started going online, I was winning/getting Gift certificates out of this world; Used them too I might add. but it's really a great feeling.

I never win squat so it would be hard to tell you how it feels to win. Not that many people around me win stuff either so I'm not so sad or envious.

I feel happy on winning, but if another person wins I can also be happy for them. Ofcourse it also depends a little on what it is that I won.

I get excited when I win something like the other day I was playing on netwinner.com and I won 5,000 points which put me up to 25,000 and that means i won a 25.00 gift card for walmart. nothing beats a free gift card all it takes is time and patience. you all should check it out. If you join please put carolrice as your referral under refer code. I have had a blast playing this game

Honestly, i feel sad for myself because i haven't achieve what other people achieved. On the other side, i was happy for that person because they are happy for their win. I congratulate them ,because it is really fun if you win something even just a little prize, it brings different excitement. When i finally have my chance i be definitely happy for myself.

Congrats on your winning a prize! Big or small, when I win something, I am delighted. I look at it from the point of view that I didn't have it before I got it and it cost me next to nothing or less.

happy... of course. not everybody has a previlage to win everybody has a chance but not everybody can win. when i was working at japan we have this bingo socials and i won 3 times... a workout equipment (its a small muscle toner for the arms), a DVD, and a belt. i was so happy because of the fun and i really am not to bingo so i didnt expect im going to win. and once i had text a tv station just commenting about a segment. i didnt expect that they will raffle all the numbers of the people who text their comments and i won a goody bag before christmas. isnt it wonderful?

Well first of all I always feel happy for a person who wins something, rather than begrudge them...it was their turn to "shine" and win...and hey, congrats on the free meal..did you get to pick what you wanted? I hope you picked the most expensive item...hehee
