Have you ever known one of those people who always seem to have something major going wrong in their life?
There’s a guy, let’s call him Sam for privacy, whom I’ve know for five years. During this time there has not been a single day where everything seemed to be going his way. There has always been something: health problem (major or minor), financial crisis, personal disaster, work trauma/drama, spiritual distress. He defeats one problem only to immediately be faced by another.
His life is almost enough to make me believe in luck. Lady Luck despises him and eschews him at all costs, but loves me and hangs out with me every day.
What if it’s not luck, though? What if, somehow, a person’s choices determine the type of “luck” they have?
Now I’m not saying that Sam chooses to be in the situations he finds himself in. But what if some choices have unforeseen consequences that result in a seemingly cursed life? And what if other choices have unforeseen consequences that result in a seemingly lucky life?
I don’t know, and I’m probably wrong. But it just seems so odd to me the drastically different types of “luck” people have.
