Last month's theme was Being My Own Valentine, and a very nice theme it was...I enjoyed the flowers and all...thank you, Kristin.
So, in the spirit of March and St. Patty's Day and all things green, I hereby declare the theme of this month to be LUCK!
When I started writing this, I thought, hmmm, last month's theme was a little easier to fulfill, being as I don't really need anyone or anything else to be my own Valentine. But luck? I'm not a leprechaun...
As I thought about it and read about it, though, I found that most of the quotes I read about luck say - to loosely paraphrase -- that luck is essentially the meeting of hard work and opportunity.
“I'm a greater believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it”
― Thomas Jefferson
“Nature creates ability; luck provides it with opportunity.“ – François de la Rochefoucauld
“Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.” – Seneca
Well, that's true, I think. And I believe I have the hard work and tenacity part down, so I am already a part way there!
So, in this fine month, as the world around me begins to turn green, I am wishing for that little something extra, that twist of fate that provides the extra push in the right direction, that thing called LUCK!
...and of course wishing the best of LUCK to all my Sparkling friends, too!
Cheers to all!
