This is a bit of a ramble, so bear with me.... There’s been a lot on my mind lately, as always. A lot that I’m grateful and feel lucky for, but also a lot that I can’t be grateful for. In the end, regardless of where my mind takes me, I just keep reminding myself I worked for everything in my life good and bad. They were choices I’ve made. I’ve always felt lucky, but I’ve never wanted to be. It’s a give and take, as with everything in life. My Dad would always tell me that I create my own luck. By working hard, and being a good person. I have to agree that is a great formula for creating luck, but you can’t forget the terrible things in your life that make you... you. Would you prefer to live in naiveté? Or use the experiences of life to make the hard choices that bring you a longer deeper joy? I think that’s one of the questions I had been asking myself for the last few years that needed clarity. I chose what worked for me, and it’s paid off. I’m lucky that it did. Regardless of my rambling, I just mean to say that I’m thankful, good and bad for what I’m making in my life. And I hope you too can find your paths... and if you need a hand, there will always be people around your life to show the way.
