Luck Has Nothing to Do With It

There's a reason why I've been reading and have been inspired by Sallycat's blog for a long time.

This particular post, about the concept of luck and the life we choose to make with what we have, really struck home with me today. It is a perfect example of why I look forward to Sallycat's wonderful and brave take on life and living her dreams.
There are days when I feel braver than other days, or feel more or less in control of how I wish to live my life, but there never is a day where I sit back and wish that luck would magically change things for me. Life is too short and precious for that.
Thank you for the reminder, Sallycat.

I went off to visit your link and got lost. And I agree that we create our own luck through effort, willingness to take risks and embrace the unknown. xoxox

Yes, Paris Parfait, and I know you are a shining example of that outlook, too. I'm glad you wandered off to Sallycat--she is amazing.

Tangobaby, precious one, thank you for sending me so many of your readers. It has been a joy to receive their comments, and to know that others who have not commented, have still stopped by.
A big hug from me to you. SC

I too found my way to Sallycat- that's the beauty of blogs and generous writers- sharing the magical words of others and precious things we've found.
