A fabulous surprise in the post today;
As part of a prize I was lucky enough to win over at this beautiful blog. Now one of my lovely friends will get lucky too as I pass one along.
Luck - it's a funny concept. In my family I'm known as the lucky parker (I "always" seem to get a spot just outside where we're going) but I think that's more a combination of optimism and laziness. No major raffles prizes, no tattslotto wins...but generally I feel I'm very lucky (to be born in Australia, to have met my husband, to have my beautiful family). Is that circumstance, fate or luck?? Are they just different facets of the same thing? Is life truly so random?
My brother used to maintain that everyone only had a certain quota of luck - he wouldn't buy raffle tickets or enter competitions with smaller prizes - - - only the ones with cars or a million dollars or so for him. He's still waiting to hit the jackpot.... and I'm collecting magnets, buttons and other little delights along the way.
Some people seem to attract disaster/drama. Are they just unlucky? Are they doing something wrong? Is it a matter of attitude? Is it possible to change your luck through behaviour or attitude?
Are you a lucky duck? Do you carry a talisman? Knock on wood? Rub shoulders with winners?
