Hello Girlfriends – Wikipedia defines luck as: Luck or fortuity is good or bad fortune in life caused by accident or chance and attributed by some to reasons of faith or superstition, which happens beyond a person’s control.
We hear the words, “Good Luck” and “How Lucky You Are”; what does this really mean? Are we lucky or just at the right place at the right time? Do random acts of luck happen? Is it luck when we land a great job – the job we’ve been desiring for a long time? Or is it persistence, dedication and hard work?
Wikipedia further states, “Cultural views of luck vary from perceiving luck as a matter of random chance to attributing to luck explanation of faith or superstition. For example, the Romans believed in the embodiment of luck as the Goddess Fortuna, while the atheist and philosopher Daniel Dennett believes that “luck is mere luck” rather than a property of a person or thing.
Thomas Jefferson stated, “I am a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.” I find these words very wise indeed!

So when something fortuitous happens in your life, are you the first to say it was “LUCK” or was it that you were at the right place at the right time? Even the lottery winners had to be at the right place at the right time to get those winning numbers. Even if you picked every number but if you didn’t go play, you had the numbers but never put the action into motion and bought a ticket. Could that be luck that you decided to go play the lottery and had the machine pick the numbers and each number came out? Or – were you determined and felt compelled to go play the lottery at that exact time that the machine spitted out the winning ticket???
I feel that being at the right place at the right time is a big part of luck. Well, maybe hard work, dedication, persistence is part of luck als0? For now, I say the BEST to YOU and with hard work LUCK will happen!
Remember, may the possibilities of today excite us all!
