  1. Interesting question! No, I’m not lucky. By my own standards that is. I have a sibling who is lucky, so I could compare, see? He always won things at raffles, found money lying on the sidewalk, lived a really charmed life it seems. I spoke with him recently and he complained about his hard life…he’s had to work all his life and he’ll be working long after retirement too, I bet. I say he’s a work-a-holic and needs a 12 step to deal with his addiction. He doesn’t see it that way. And he never seems to see the luck either. It’s all perception maybe. I’m not lucky, but I’m blessed. And that’s good enough. πŸ™‚

    1. I do think there is a matter of perception involved. Often, we are blinder when it comes to realizing our own luck, while it is so easy to see luck in other people’s lives… But quite honestly, I’d much rather feel blessed than lucky πŸ™‚ Thank you for sharing your thoughts, Melanie xx

    1. I’m pretty sure everybody else would agree that with a big heart like yours, Life had no choice but to grant you a great family (and I am guessing, really good friends too!) πŸ™‚

  2. Compared to the tail end of 2015 through 2017, I felt lucky in the sense that even though I was homeless, I still had a roof over my head, that was provided by the state.
    Afterwards, When I moved in with my friend… I consider myself still fortunate to have a roof over my head, food to eat, and my precious baby boy, Peanut by my side.
    Even though my roommate is as messy as they come, I pretty muh keep to mself in my own clean room. This is for my own sanity.

    1. Hehehehe, can’t teach an ”old” monkey new tricks, uh? It’s probably better to leave it at that πŸ™‚ At least you are safe, and comfortable, which is already a lot! We tend to forget to appreciate things like having a home and eating everyday… And I am glad that your life is that much better, compared to what it once was! *Big hugs*

      1. Hahahah… I don’t know. I think I have started to become a lil selfish and focus on what I love/want. And have become outspoken about my critical views of others 😜

  3. I never have got my head around what that means.

    Do I consider myself richer than I will ever need to be? Yes. Although everything I own could fit into my large suitcase…and I don’t own property or wheels, I am very wealthy in love, family and friends. Very rich in amazing experiences and life stories.
    My cup is always over-flowing. I have had a few challenges along the way, but they taught me priceless life lessons – and just ended up making me even wealthier.

    1. I think people quickly connect ”being lucky” and having a lot of ”things” and money. I think your richness is much more related to your family, friends and experiences πŸ™‚ And in that way, you are very wealthy πŸ™‚

  4. Yes, absolutely. I’m a white person living in the U.S., which makes me luckier than ~97% people on earth. The fact that I didn’t meet my soul mate, wah wah, or strike it rich is relatively meaningless compared with the fact that neither I nor my children have ever been hungry, homeless, or unprotected by a powerful military.

  5. I think I am lucky. I was born in Canada and not in a country where there are profuse human rights abuses, or ongoing war or economic deprivation. I have had some major bumps in my life health wise but I have recovered well. So…I am lucky.

    1. Same here… I had my fair share of bumps in the road, but just being born in Canada was a blessing (not as much as if I had been born in Denmark, but still LOL). πŸ™‚
