I've had people tell me how lucky I am A LOT in my life. And it's true, I have been very fortunate and am incredibly blessed. Of course I've also made it through some rather dark and difficult times, that's life. I have also worked very, very hard. And I like to have fun. I try not to take myself & life too damn seriously. A mantra I've had since I was in Junior High is "Everything is what you make of it." I can even tell you the name of the boy that passed these words of wisdom on to me that I continue to use to this day. But I've always felt that there is more to my good luck. I think this article on luck expalains a lot about how we make our own luck. Oh, and I was born in April which helps apparently!
