We were watching the movie “Poi” yesterday. Prakash Raj , who personifies “Fate” makes a statement ,” If something good happens, people call it luck whereas if something bad happens, it is called fate”.
This got me thinking about luck. According to M/W, luck is defined as
a: a force that brings good fortune or adversity
b: the events or circumstances that operate for or against an individual
We do have good luck and bad luck.But, we call someone “lucky” only if he/she is blessed with good luck. Why can’t someone be bad “lucky” . But, we do symbolize “fate” with bad happenings.We all know fate is inevitable but why should it be linked with disaster and not godsend. Thinking about godsend, some people would call luck as “God’s grace”. Why do we expect God to always bless us with good occurances in life. Synonymical to good and bad luck, we should expect God’s grace to be good and bad.
“Inspite of what fate brings me, with God’s grace,I am lucky enough to be happy.”
