Lucky one

March 27, 2017

Not sure why but lately I’ve found myself telling some of my friends that they are “such a lucky” people. I have also heard from my friends and acquaintances saying how they think that I am the lucky person, leading a great life.

Many times I would just express my gratitude for such words and kind thoughts, but my inner voice would at the same time have a good laughter and think:”Me lucky? Yeah right, if you would only know all of my troubles, you wouldn’t think of me as a lucky one.”

This all made me ask myself a question, what does it mean to be lucky? Why do I think that my friends or some people which I don’t even know personally are the “lucky ones” and I’m perhaps, not?! What does make somebody a lucky person?

As with many things and situations in life, the answer is quite simple but to make it a part of your every day life and truly live the “answer” is what many of us have the difficulties with. Being in luck or lucky has noting to do with certain things happening to you or people whom you’re surrounded with, but it comes from you and your inner restraints. The more you let yourself enjoy life, the more you’re grateful and aware of how much you have is what will ultimately make you a “lucky person”. The more you’re vibrating with the positivity, the more you’re in luck! You will attract more and more people and situations which will make you live a lucky life. You need to have a positive outlook on life in order to have and live one.

It is easier said than done, but seriously, just take a moment and think about this:

*I’m feeling lucky today because I can see, I can hear, I can move,

*I’m feeling lucky today because of the smile that my daughter gave me in the morning,

*I’m feeling lucky today because I had great time at work with my colleagues,

*I’m feeling lucky today because I had food on my table, water in my shower and the sun was shining beautifully…

So in this sense, yes, I am a lucky one and yes being lucky can’t be bought or forced, it needs to be felt first in order to fully experience it too!

    Very well said, my friend :). I’m with you 100 percent on this! It is easy to dismiss someone’s hard work with “luck”, when it really is all up to you. And I believe in positive energies and thoughts that really shape our lives more than we can imagine. I think I never or almost never say “you’re lucky” to anyone (except if they win in a raffle or something), because even something that is a “right place, right time” kind of situation, is usually and mostly thanks to your actions that made that “luck” possible then and there.

      Oh yes! Amen to that my friend, you speak my mind as that is exactly what I think too!
      Luck doesn’t just come on it’s own, each person holds the keys to their own happiness and
      the sooner they see/ understand this, the better for them as they won’t waste their time to just
      someday, somehow get lucky but they will attract and make “lucky life” happen to them!

    It is easy to take the little things for granted isn’t it. When they are really the big things that make us fortunate. Loving your embroidery.

      Thanks so much Amy for commenting! yes, that is true, it’s so easy to take those small things for granted
      and think that we don’t have enough of goodness in our lives.

    Never really thought about it that way but you’re right. We’re lucky in lots of ways that we don’t stop to think about most of the time. Great bomber and you look fantastic with the scarf . xoxoxo

    You look really cute in these pictures! I think the camera loves you and I also think the bandana headband really suits you.

    I personally don’t believe in luck. I think the good things in life happen to us for a reason, rather than some unknown variable which we call luck. For instance if I get an A+ because I studied really hard and people say I am lucky, then it is kind of offensive. Luck has nothing to do with it. My hard work is what got me the good grades.

    There’s always something to be grateful for and feel lucky about. People just need to stop for a minute and think about it, not simply taking everything for granted. That’s quite rewarding for sure.

    Its always important to be grateful for what we have or achieve in life! And i do believe luck plays an important part in people lives however because of social media these days, people always put up the perfect part of their lives. This eventually leads others to believe how lucky they are when in fact they are probably having their own troubles!

    Your look is so cute, the lipstick, bomber jacket and the headscarf all look so cute !
