Adventure Question: Can you decide to be lucky? Whatever your answer, have a mini-adventure to test it out and come back to tell the tale.
Can one decide to be lucky and from that point of view, will lucky things happen?
I tested out this question yesterday. I did my usual hike – lucky. But I went later in the day when it was too darn hot – unlucky. I always feel lucky when I see lizards and hot weather brings them out – lucky. Here’s my multimedia account – lucky/unlucky – what do you think?
I decide to make the best of my hot hike. – lucky
I stalk many lizards with limited results – unlucky
Surprise! I don’t catch a lizard – unlucky
But If I hadn’t already been running my video, I wouldn’t have gotten this close to the swarming butterflies – lucky!
I sneak up on the Daddy of all lizards – lucky
I’m about to sit down and have a nice drink of water at my thinking place. – lucky
Wow, loved seeing those lizards – really lucky!
Went home, thought I’d have the luckiest day in the world after that. However, each and every piddling, irritating, stupid thing that could go wrong did go wrong. – unlucky, unlucky, UNLUCKY!
But at the end of the day, my husband and I had the longest, most heartfelt talk that we’ve had for years about our lives, our love and this blog. He calls it me discovering myself and says that is the most import thing of all.
