I used to hate being described as lucky.
As a futurist, I believed Lucky is simply “labor under correct knowledge”.
Cultivating a sense of gratitude has made me see how lucky I truly aim. I live as a free American. I can do what I want, say what I want, and have the freedom to pursue happiness in anyway that I want.
I hated being called lucky, because it seems to apply that I didn’t work hard, or that I’m undeserving… I was simply lucky.
I have to remember that this is all a gift of fortune. Yes, I am extremely Lucky. I should be grateful and say Thanks to the Stars for these Gifts of Fortune.
Enjoy your luck, if you’re lucky. (You are.)
