The Prompt for this week from the lovely Sara over at Mumturnedmom is a quote and it is:
Calvin: You know, Hobbes, some days even my lucky rocket ship underpants don’t help.
Bill Watterson, Calvin and Hobbes
I think that luck is a funny thing, the definition on my computers app says – Luck * Something that happens to someone by chance, a chance occurrence.
* A superstitious feeling that brings fortune or success.
I am not really sure where I sit in terms of luck as to a certain extent I feel that you make your own luck in life, but then there are certain things likes winning the national lottery that purely are down to a chance occurrence which makes the winner very lucky.
I do not personally agree with things like lucky charms as I am quite a logical person and I feel that the item makes the person think that they will do well so they do well, and if for example the person lost the lucky charm, they would then convince themselves that they are going to do badly and then they would do badly, so it is just a state of mind really.
There is no denying that some people do seem to have more luck then others, for example I have heard of someone winning the jackpot on the lottery twice! Winning once is extraordinary lucky, but twice. I have also heard of someone winning the jackpot on the lottery with the first ticket that they have ever brought and again I think that is very lucky.
In contrast to this there is the flip slide where people do seem to be very unlucky. I have heard of people loosing several family members to different illnesses and accidents over just a few months and people that fly for the first time ever and the plane goes down. These types of events are also down to chance occurrences and are unavoidable.
I like to think that you can increase your chances of luck in life by never letting an opportunity pass you by, staying positive and looking for the good in life and by being proactive but sometimes no matter what you do I guess some things in life are just down to luck.
