Do Tell: Do You Consider Yourself to Be Lucky?

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Since the four-leaf clover is one of the mascots for this holiday, I thought it would be a good time to talk about luck! I've never considered myself lucky per se, but I know some people who just always have luck on their sides. They nail every job interview, they hit every green traffic light, and they even win big at the blackjack tables. Then there are those who are considered unlucky. They unfortunately have a dark cloud over their heads and everything that can go wrong, does. I think I fall someplace in the middle, but what about you? Do tell: Do you consider yourself to be lucky?

Yes..... but i like to call it blessed. Luck has nothing to do with it.

i am lucky with some things. finding a parking place, getting in line JUST before everyone gets there, that kind of thing. it's sort of a joke. everything else; NO!

I'm not UNlucky, and that's pretty good in the scheme of things, if you ask me.

Never lucky. Happens once in a blue moon- and then whapoo! back to the looser streak.

Hmmm...I guess sometimes I am. Like someone else said, I feel more blessed with the amazing life that I've been given.

i'm with dear on this one. i fall somewhere in the middle. when it comes to work, lucky - i always get the job; when it comes to something like traffic, very unlucky - i hit every red light and get stuck behind the slow person. but in general, my life has been very blessed. i live comfortably and have a wonderful family so i can't complain. but when it comes to those blackjack tables, i definitely wish i had a bit more luck!

I don't think there's something called luck, it all depends on the decisions you make, though sometimes unexpected things happen. For my part, I've never been lucky. Good things don't happen to me much so when they do I tend to embrace them a bit more. :P

I don't really think I have luck on my side in terms of green lights (impossible in dc) or winning raffles. But I constantly feel incredibly lucky for being born into the family I was born to, into the situation etc. I feel lucky for having a warm bed to curl up in at night, hot water for showers etc. A fraction of it I did for myself by making good decisions, but mostly it was just pure luck/chance to be born into this world with the opportunities my parents and country were able to give me.

Well, not everything is about choices. I definitely think luck is involved. There's no way you can control everything. Like catching the bus--sure, leaving my house on time is a decision I make, but whether or not the bus hits traffic is out of my control. I don't get on the bus and say, "oh, good thing I decided to catch this bus." no, I'm thinking "yay, lucky me, the bus is here and I didn't have to wait." And this applies to bigger things, too. I think I'm lucky to have my boyfriend in my life, I'm lucky to have passed the bar without studying, and I was lucky to get the amazing apartment I live in at a bargain price. But then there are areas I am very unlucky in--I usually don't catch that bus, I don't get the job offers I want despite having worked hard and having a good resume, and I don't have one of those metabolisms where you can eat whatever you want and stay super skinny!!!

I don't believe in luck, exactly. I believe there are happy accidents. There are some things you can't control in life. It's all about how you play the hand you're dealt. Unfortunately, sometimes you end up holding some pretty crappy cards, and sometimes, you just suck at card games. Haha, just kidding :)

I agree with Aimee, i dont believe in luck. I believe that every that happens to you is the result of a choice you made. Whether its good or bad, you got yourself there, and if its bad, no amount of "luck" will get you out of it, only making good decisions can do that.

I think we're all lucky with some area of life wherther its the love life, social life, health, spirtuality, family, money or career. Right now, there's nothing wrong with my family, money or health...but the others could use a boost! LOL

i was gonna say the same thing ladyp, i don't consider myself lucky but very blessed. there are days that are bad (in my book) but compared to others, i'd say i'm fortunate to have the kind of burdens i have. :)

I used to totally get by on luck. For years. But the last few years I have definitely lost that luck and have had a much harder time...I'm hoping it will come back soon!!!

I think I lean more to the unlucky side...seems like when one thing goes wrong, 20 other things want to dogpile me at the same time. :) But anyway, thinking more positively makes all the difference, and all I have to do is look at my son's face to remind myself how lucky I am to have him. And there goes my "Awwwww" moment of the day...go figure. :)

I think Im fairly lucky, I have a wonderful husband and an amazing family (in-laws included). Granted, not everything can go right all the time- but for the most part I think luck is on my side :)
