Luck is in the eye of the beholderPosted: May 5, 2009
Last week was a lucky week for me, so I thought this week was bound to be a bit of a let down.
Hold on, is that pessimistic or what?
I really don’t deserve nice things to happen to me if I view a week where I may not get what I want as a let down.
I’ve always had this idea I wasn’t lucky and to be honest I quite liked that idea. I don’t need luck, I make the effort to do things for myself.
So I’d convinced myself I never won things and to reinforce that belief I, well you guessed it, never entered things. Talk about self-fulfilling prophecy.
So, am I lucky?
Well I’m healthy (could lose a few pounds, ahem, but the weighing scales went from the house years ago so who’s counting, or weighing?)
I live with a wonderful partner. I have enough money to keep a roof over my head and I’m not starving, (see note above). I get to do the things I like. I have loving family and friends. I am safe.
It’s so easy to spend your time trying to get the next thing on your life list and forgetting about what you already have.
So who’s lucky?
