NO, Not just lucky but blessed, very blessed !!
But this needs to be in the Hubbers' hangout!
Only blessed is enough I think. There are not so many lucky people in this world. what we should do is work harder and harder.
Blessed does not mean you sit and do nothing, it means that you appreciate everything that you have
and that you develop your skills and your potential . Thank you
Well, looking at the 2 beautiful children I have, and my handsome husband, I would say so.
But then I've had such horrible luck lately I'm not sure anymore
I am happy that you say yes. I fact I am neither lucky nor unlucky. If I work hard everything will be fine.
well five years back if you would have asked me this question i would have said well i create my luck...but being blessed by great friends , family and wonderful clients ...i feel i am very lucky...i do work hard but i am blessed to have people in my life who are motivation for me to work hard...
I don't agree that if you work hard everything will be fine - it also requires a direction among other things or it just enslaves you to someone or something.
On the point of hte thread - I am incredibly lucky, I got tetanus when I was a child (and there was no cure) I 'died' @32 times and was brought back in a ground breaking new method of treating hte illness and was on eof the first to survive - made headline noews locally and all !
Then I have pretty much always been my own boss doing work I really enjoyed.
I am now getting ancient but still doing work I like - and now also in a fantastic place with the loveliest girl I could ever have dreamed of.
I was born a middle-class human in a first world country in a time period where many scientific and technical advances are being made, so yes, I feel uncommonly lucky. What if I'd been born a snail?
I feel unlucky most of the times when my plans don't work out.
If you are optmistic, you will think you are lucky. If pessimistic, you will think you are unlucky.
I was fortunate as far as "accident-of-birth" goes, so I consider myself fortunate in that way. Other than stuff related to the parents I ended up with, anything I have I have because I've known how to get it and/or worked for it.
Lucky? Absolutely not. There's nothing that involves luck (like winning drawings etc.) that I have ever won.
One of my sons has always just seemed amazingly lucky. When he was little he'd stand at those "gumball machines" that have little junk in them, and say, "I want that one." That's the one that would come out! Worrying that he'd be disappointed, I'd be careful to explain, "Well, you can't always know what color is going to come out. You may not get the one you want." -- and then, yet again, the one he wanted would come out (or else 3 of them would come out). He knows he tends to have luck in that way, so he sometimes buys lottery tickets. He's won (nothing big, but nothing to sneeze at either) several times.
He always tells the story about how in kindergarten they made candy apples, but he didn't get one. (He was a shy-ish, reserved, little kid who tended to take a backseat when assertiveness was important). He said how he felt really bad about being the one who didn't get one. That day, he got to my mother's house (he'd take the bus to her house), and it happened that she'd made candy apples. There are a lot of ways that my son hasn't had a lot of things easy, so it isn't as if he's had a charmed life (the way, in some ways, I kind of did for a very long time); but, boy, when they were giving out luck did they ever give a bunch of it out to my son. (I'd ask him to buy me a lottery ticket, but I know if it's my money that buys it - that's it. Nothing!)
I have always been very lucky. I've always had everything I need and more.
Yes. I believe that I am both lucky and blessed. They are both intertwined...interrelated. Whatever I have endeavored has turned out well when approached with an open heart. I feel that my life is better than I imagined it would be when I was young. Yes, I am both lucky and blessed!

Is it unlucky to throw away a lucky bamboo?The lucky bamboo I bought five years ago finally succumbed to my black thumb (and forgetfulness), but I fear bad luck if I throw it away.
