Just My Luck!


There are people who don't believe in luck. I am not one of them. And it's not because I was born unlucky or bad things kept happening for no reason. In fact, growing up I realized I had "above-average" luck. But from past few days I have been experiencing some real shit luck. And for someone who is not used to it, it's more annoying!

Have you had those days when everything that can go wrong, goes wrong? You know if you are lucky you happen to be in right place at right time, well in "shit-luck" you end up in wrong place at the wrong time! First few times I was in denial and thought it must be coincidence, but when you have more and more of these "coincidences", you realize something is terribly wrong with your luck. So I have been feeling a bit low lately and was talking to my husband (cribbing to be exact) about my state and he said luck is like sine waves! It goes up and down periodically..

Apparently when you are at downfall, you should keep kicking and fighting against all odds till you turn your luck around. Sigh! It feels like a lot of hard work. Suddenly I feel sad for people who have prolonged periods of bad luck. Till now I never understood how it feels to put your everything, do everything right and still no result. I mean usually when things don't work out it's because I didn't work hard enough and that didn't make me feel miserable (although it should). Somehow you feel you are the one in control of situation, but this, this feels horrible!

They say everythings happens for good, so maybe these tough times will help me in ways unforeseen by my shortsighted vision. Maybe it's all about perspective and not about good or bad (it sure doesn't feel good right now!). Sometimes I feel comfort in knowing am not the only one having bad luck that there are so many people struggling with it. Does it make me a bad person? I don't know but atleast it makes me feel less lonely.

So till my sine wave turns up I am going to kick hard and refuse to give up so easily. Sometimes things go wrong for a reason or maybe there is no reason, sometimes life just sucks. But life doesn't end with it. So we just have to drag ourselves up and get over it. I feel better already!
