I’ve posted about luck and being lucky before:
Things do tend to ‘fall into place’ a lot for me:
And I’m not sure if I’ve always been like that, or if I’ve just noticed it recently when everything seems to be going so well.
The other day someone said to me:
> ‘We have at least three things happen to us each day which are bad luck. If it wasn’t for bad luck, we’d have no luck at all’.
I thought about it for a minute… I don’t tend to get ‘bad luck’. I tend to have things happen, but I don’t tend to look at them as bad luck. And I certainly don’t expect them to happen to me (three times a day!).
When something happens, I choose to look at it positively:
– I’m injured (touch wood!) – I’ll just need to recover and focus on something else.
– I get a chip in my windscreen – I think I should probably get that fixed. Then a week later another chip hits my windscreen, and causes a big crack. – I do the auto glass / insurance thing, and it’s quick efficient and cheap(er than buying a new windscreen and doesn’t affect my excess).
– I nearly die in a car accident (all my own doing) – I learn from it and don’t drive so fast from then on. https://lornpearsontrains.co.uk/2013/07/05/the-day-i-nearly-died/
– Didn’t get the job? What for you don’t go by you. You’ll get something one day.
I always tend to look on the bright side and can always remember doing so. I’m not sure where I got that from – my upbringing, my parents? My close family friends? Who knows, but I like it.
I was once described as calm and flap less, (and full of energy too) in work. 🙂 I like all that too.
Things happen for a reason – or so they say. 🙂
So when something bad happens, I let it go and learn from it or see the bright side of it.
Make your own luck: speak to people, learn, take action and luck and good things will come your way. Follow your dreams and carve paths to where you want to go.
You can look at your life, think about what you want to improve, set goals and change things. You can be who you want to be and you can choose your attitude.
I’m happy and feel very lucky. I let go of things I don’t need to be concerned about and I deal with each day and thing as it comes. Easy peasy. Bring it on. 🙂
