According to the dictionary, Luck is “a purposeless, unpredictable and uncontrollable force that shapes events favourably or unfavourably for an individual, group or cause”.
I don’t believe in luck.
We make our own choices, and face the reality. Sometimes the reality we face is a product of someone else’s choice. But in the end, everything happens for a reason.
I try to remember this. Especially when something unexpected occurs. Because even though I didn’t see it, there was a force behind the event. So when you step back, you can see all the factors and variables clearly. It’s simply from someone’s narrow perspective that they call a circumstance ‘Luck’.
All humans have purpose. Some have more than others, or so it seems. But really, one small child has just as much purpose as a great hero. Because that child effects other’s lifes. And because of that child, they will forever see the world different. So when they come into contact with others, this will be a factor. This continues on, and on. And eventually, the friend of one man influences him just as friends do. And that man becomes a great hero.
Even if the child didn’t make it past their 5th birthday, they have forever impacted the world.
So you see… No one is a waste of space. And you have a purpose behind being alive.
