St. Patricks Day and four-leaf clovers go together like peanut butter and jelly. In fact, you are hard pressed to find a St. Patrick’s Day item: clothing, decoration, paper plate… that does not feature a four leaf clover somewhere in the design. We like those little clovers because they symbolize luck. More importantly, GOOD luck. And we all wish for that, don’t we?
But there’s a secret those four-leaf clovers aren’t telling you; a secret not just on St. Patrick’s Day, but every day of the year…
You make your OWN luck.
It’s not up to anyone else, which means YOU get to decide what kind of luck it is:
If you get stuck in traffic on the way to work, but thanks to leaving early, you still arrive on time…you just made your own luck.
If you are trying to lose weight, but fill the pantry with potato chips and cookies, causing you to grab a handful every time you go in there, well, you just made your own luck again.
And if the day simply falls apart through no fault of your own, but you smile in spite of it all, you just chose to make your own luck.
So, this St. Patrick’s day, grab a plate of corned beef and cabbage, hug a leprechaun, and remember that the luck you have is the luck you make!
