Inspirational Quote About Luck
Ahh, it’s already Monday again! How was your weekend? Mine was nicely laid back and relaxing, which I hope will lead to a nice productive week.
Since it’s March with St. Patrick’s Day coming up, I think a lot of us tend to think about luck more and where our rainbow with the pot of gold is. Do you believe in luck? I used to always say that if I didn’t have bad luck, I’d have no luck at all, but I try to not think that way anymore. Yes, it’s true many bad things happen to all of us with several of them being things we have no control over – I don’t know many people that want to get a severe illness like cancer or want to have a loved one die way too young, after all. However, I have come to join the bandwagon that a lot of our luck is what we make of it.
I was “unlucky” because I didn’t have an awesome metabolism that let me eat junk freely when I was younger and between that and stress eating, I gained a lot of weight that I used as an excuse to miss out on a lot of opportunities. I was “unlucky” because I went through a series of life events at a young age that took a toll on my self-confidence and then some making me not believe in my true potential for a number of years. The truth is, though, that a lot of this was my own doing, even if it was tough as heck to try to change around. However, I really think that once you dig your heels in and strive for positive change in yourself, you’ll notice a lot of other positive change in your overall life as well. Yes, there will still be bad that comes your way, but if you hang in there and let it, there will be a lot of good as well.
That’s why I love this week’s inspirational quote about luck so much. Yes, there are still days when I feel so stressed I’ll eat half a pack of Oreos before I realize it which can lead to self-loathing where I don’t want to get out of bed all day. However, instead of giving into all that, I push through and continue about my day as best as I can. Wouldn’t you know it, a lot of the best opportunities I have gotten to be a part of have opened up on those very days, which I likely would have missed out on if I hadn’t pushed through.
Do you think we create our own luck?
