Ahh . . . Friday the 13th. I laugh every time this day hits the calendar. All day long if something goes wrong, I’ll hear people say “Well great, it’s Friday the 13th, of course this would happen today!” While other people take the day as an excuse to complain, or something to blame things gone wrong on, I tend to look for the good things.
“I am a great believer in luck, and I find that the harder I work, the more I have of it.” ~Thomas Jefferson
I was Born on Friday the 13th
The real kicker is, if I had been a boy, my name was supposed to be Jason. I’d call that a stroke of luck right off the bat!
There is Something Magical About the Day
My dad and I have always called Friday the 13th “our lucky day”. It almost feels like an extra birthday every time the calendar falls just right.
I usually get a call or a text from my dad in the morning wishing me a Happy Friday the 13th, and there is always something a little magical about the day.
That’s Just My Luck!
This is the same kind of attitude I strive to live with every day. I’m working hard to remove the phrase “Well, that’s just my luck!” out of my vocabulary. .
Unless of course, I am referring to something wonderful that’s happened. Because, the more we tell ourselves we are unlucky, or a day is unlucky, or something bad or a mistake is just right around the corner, the more it is going to happen.
There is Good Everywhere
Have you ever bought a car and suddenly began to see it everywhere? When you buy the car and get it on your radar, you are subconsciously looking for it.
It’s the same with luck.
When I maintain a positive outlook, when I have happy things and positive outcomes on my mind, I tend to find them.
Work hard and believe that it will pay off. That’s true luck.
Cheers to a beautiful Friday the 13th.
