Luck By Chance

I am an incredibly lucky girl. Every now and then, I curse my luck. I curse when things don't happen like the way I want them to when I want them to. I every so often look at some people seemingly better off (in every sense) admiringly and think.."Why them and not me?". I am greedy. I am only human after all. But the truth of the matter is that I am an incredibly lucky girl.

The movie I saw this evening has stayed with me. Success and Failure are choices we make says the protagonist. I could not agree more. Luck in the same vein is a choice we have to make. Just like Happiness is a state of mind, so is being lucky.

I have on different occasions pondered on how unlucky I am when it comes to love or money or talent or whatever else.In spite all the complaining, I have managed to live life on my terms so far. Even when it dealt me a hand I did not like, I have found a way to be happy. In fact I have never had to look too far for happiness. It has always managed to find me.

I have much in life to be grateful for. All the bumps, insecurities, tears as well. What hasn't broken me has made me stronger. Along the way I have met some extraordinary people, seen some fantastic days, spectacular sunsets, star studded desert skies, fallen in love many many times, laughed till I cried, made friends who will last me a lifetime, and above all, learned that the best is yet to come.

Knock on wood thrice! Yes, it happened by chance that I turned out to be a very lucky girl.
