I’ve broken mirrors, walked under ladders, cuddled black cats and fruitlessly searched for four-leaf clovers. Despite all these signs to the contrary, I believe I’m extremely lucky. Why? Because there isn’t much I’d change about my life. That’s not to say I don’t struggle, but I do believe the lows make you appreciate the highs that come your way.
Here’s a quote I like about luck:
Luck is the by-product of busting your fanny. ~Don Sutton
And, from a man whose hair is what I’d call unlucky:
Everything in life is luck. ~Donald Trump
But I like this quote best, because it shows we have control over our own fates. We don’t have to let luck find us. Give up the search for that four leaf clover, and buy some green paper and Krazy Glue and make one of your own.
Go and wake up your luck – Persian Saying
Mine probably requires a little coffee, just as I do, before it fully wakes up. But that’s okay. I can wait for it. If luck was waiting for me every single moment of the day – if I always found a parking spot, or the perfect outfit, or received only worry-free phone calls from my doctor – I wouldn’t appreciate it as much as I do when it appears.

Sarah! I love quotes and today in anticipation of your guest godessesing on the naked hero Friday, I’m talking about sisters. I started off with a quote all inspired by The Opposite of Me.
Luck is on your side.
I agree, the lows make your appreciate the highs. Assuming the lows don’t bury you, figuratively or, I suppose, literally. Great St. Paddy’s day posts at the Ball!
My wife’s nose is stuck in Sarah’s book. She’s carrying it around with her!
As for luck, my son and I have some “lucky” fishing beads that we rub everytime we go. I’m telling you, they work.
Ah, nice quotes. Thanks for this!
Perhaps even the lows are the stepping stones to our good luck?!
And, alas, poor Greg…will he ever get to read The Opposite of Me? 😉
I’m not surprised you feel so lucky–your book is making just the sort of splash you must have dreamed of!
My favourite luck quote is: If you’re lucky enough to live on water, then you’re lucky enough.
Of course, I liked it more when we had a waterfront home! Still, I like the trees, which is our view now.
Today isn’t my most lucky day – I caught an awful stomach virus from my kids!
Joelle, love that quote, and so would my husband. Something about being near water is so calming for him. And Greg, please tell your wife thank you from me! Tonya, can’t wait to guest post!
She’s on the couch finishing it. She’s tough to please, believe me! She gives it two manicured thumbs up.
Find a place to send your boys and just sleep. As if.
My fave: “Luck is the by-product of busting your fanny.”
Couldn’t agree more. 🙂
