Your Lucky Day

Quotes and Notes, February 27

Today the key word was “luck” and I seemed to end up with three interrelated concepts of luck and felt that I needed to use them all. McCarthy tells us that the tree could have fallen on you instead of your house:

“You never know what worse luck your bad luck has saved you from.” –Cormac McCarthy, “No Country for Old Men.”

Tennessee Williams gives us a compact definition of luck that brings in the concept of optimism:

“Luck is believing you’re lucky.”–Tennessee Williams

And Jimmy Dean gives us something about luck to ponder all day. I’ll have to figure out exactly what “try your luck” means.

“You gotta try your luck at least once a day, because you could be going around lucky all day and not even know it.”--Jimmy Dean

Today, as the clouds clear and the sun starts shining on your life, think of what parts of your life are luck and which parts are consequences. This is your lucky day. Start it by sharing a smile.

Everything is going to be all right
