I never felt like a particularly lucky person. There were people for whom everything just sort of dropped into place, easy as pie, a fits-like-a-glove kind of life…then there’s me. I fall into the nothing-good-comes-easy category. You know, like most of the people on the planet.

This isn’t a woe is me post. I’m genuinely bumbuzzled by people who walk through life with everything dropping into their lap like manna from heaven. How does one really appreciate the good stuff when it doesn’t take any effort? How do you feel the highs when there aren’t really the lows? I don’t mean the buried under a pile of sadness lows, but those everyday obstacles we maneuver to make things work? They make the good stuff extra good, y’know?

So in general I’ve never considered myself a randomly lucky person but really, when I look back I see all the ways I lucked into the opportunities to make my choices. Which is its own sort of luck.
