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.
