Some people would say you make your own luck in this world. Well, I
believe our destiny lies in our hands, but I also believe that dumb luck
plays a part in pretty much everything about our lives:
where we are born, and to whom, the people we meet or don’t meet, our
health and safety.
Try telling the families of plane crash victims that
‘you make your own luck in this world,’ tell parents of children who die
young with obscure diseases, tell people who have all their family,
friends and worldly possessions wiped out by natural disaster.
good or bad, can come at you out of nowhere. It can help to propel you
towards an incredible victory (take Olajumoke the bread seller for instance), or it can crush you in a second.
The truth is that we are all tiny
insects, playing around on this planet at the mercy of dumb luck.
These are amongst hardest things to face. But face it we
must, and accepting dumb luck is a part of that.
