YA Indie Carnival- Luck

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  Well, tomorrow. I'm a bit early, but better early than late, right?  Right!  I'm sure you can imagine what our post is about today.  If not, I'll spell it out for you.


Some people blame all the good things that happen in their life on it.  Some people blame all the bad things that happen in their life on it.  Either way, it's apparently very fickle.  Me?  I don't believe in luck.  I believe in fate.  I believe in destiny.  I believe that everything happens for a reason, exactly when and where and how it's supposed to.  Good or bad.  I may not understand it.  I may not like it.  But I have to believe that it all adds up to something...right.  Something perfect.  Something that is  It's just what I need, for whatever reason, at that very moment.  Sometimes it's a kick in the pants.  Sometimes it's something so wonderful it takes my breath.  Sometimes it's utter silence that is filled with things that can only be perceived, not seen or heard.  Regardless, whether I understand it today, tomorrow or in ten years, it all comes together to form the tapestry of my life.  It's unique to me, like no other in the world.  Designed for me and around me.  That's not to say I don't believe in free will.  Because I do.  I believe that the choices I make have consequences--for better or worse.  Sometimes the things I do have no effect whatsoever.  Sometimes, the ripples can be seen for years into my future.  But I believe that there is a divine plan that takes all that into consideration and still makes it work out all right in the end.  That's what I believe.  But that's just me.  I can honestly say, however, that if there were such a thing as luck, I'd be happy to walk around all day with a leprechaun at my side and a four-leaf clover taped to my forehead.  I might even switch from Frosted Flakes to Lucky Charms. 

*pauses to consider*

Nah!  That's asking TOO MUCH!!  ;)
