    Lucky to have my health, family and things of that nature.  Winning things, contests, etc.  NO

    I used to be really lucky with gambling. I won everywhere I went - bingo, casino, horse racing..but not any more. It used to be a family thing when I was younger, and I think I used to just 'believe' that I would win so I did. That's my theory.

    Otherwise, I'm very lucky in life. I believe that I have had great opportunities to learn, grow, and become the person I am to day. I have a great husband, loving kids (I mean dogs) and I'm happy. I have freedom and a warm house to come home to every-night. Yes, I'm lucky.

    I guess I'm lucky to have a great family and friends. However, I have never once won any kind of lucky draws etc. even though I've tried.

    I think luck is all about perspective, just like life is about perspective. I would say I have a lot to be grateful for and therefore consider myself lucky. I've attracted many positive people and events into my life. Some may call that luck but I believe we create our own luck.

    Yes. I consider myself very lucky. Graduate of three degrees, going for more, visited many locations in a short time, grew up in a nice area, have a wonderful family, and have an inspiring partner.

    I think anyone who is blessed enough to be able and afford a computer and even see this question is lucky. Most of us are surrounded by lucky people so we don't fully appreciate it many times.

      Fab answer, I like it. All too easy to take things for granted.  Thank you. People have different conceptions of "luck," I guess, which is really interesting.

    No. There is no such thing as luck.It is a made-up theory for how things occur.
    ALL THINGS are PREDESTINE as consequences for all that we do and say.
    So it is not by luck that things happen and decisions are made. Each tree have its own fruit.And it is not by chance that we are here to eat them.
    It is not by chance(or luck) that some will win the lottery.It is already determine that someone will win. It is just a matter of time,and not if it can be done or not.
    Everything that is was meant to be. And every choice that is made have already been made by others. I am not lucky to be here. I was predestine to be here.

      Interesting,Apostle Jack, though I do have difficulty imagining everything is predestined. Doesn't that mean we're all playing a part and have no free will? I'll have to learn more on that theory. Thanks for replying.

      Free will is predestine as well. It is determine and define as CHOICE . God created each one of us with intellect and choice. God did not want us to be robots. So He gave us FREE WILL.
      That some will serve Him,and some will not...is already known.

    No.............I do not not think that I am lucky.


    I, do, think that I was blessed, when my home burned to the ground...............and none of my children perished.....................I was blessed.


    I do think, that even though friends, neighbors and the surrounding community are struggling to keep their families together, I am blessed to be able to feed mine and hold them together.


    When so many mothers, lay awake at night, wondering about the plight of their daughters, I am blessed to know where my children are.

    NO................I do not think that I am " lucky"...............NOR, do I think that I am a better mother or wife...............I do not think these things...................

    I think, only, THANK YOU GOD, for all that I have to be thankful for............for the the things that YOU have spared me from.....................for the grace and dignity to face what HAS come my way.

    I, also, think that for those of you who would think, that I was " lucky".......would be SHOCKED at what has kept me awake during the nights.

    In many ways I do think I'm lucky, but I like to see it as being blessed. I beat Cancer twice, walked away from a fatal car crash, and became a ballroom dancer after my doctors told me I'd never dance again. Yeah, I'm blessed.

      Good going, Eric, I'm glad things worked out well. I guess blessed is another way of looking at it, thanks for the answer.

    I think any person is lucky it depends on how you make  it to be, and I am  also lucky
