Being lucky

The post is owed to someone who I had a good discussion with, very recently.
Talking to this person about 'being lucky' made me realize that it's not a bad thing at all. Being lucky, in fact, is something great. I have always believed in luck, fate, destiny, karma. I never denied being lucky myself but never understood why some people cannot take it - when they're called 'lucky'. Therefore, had a discussion with a friend and hence, the post.


I don't have any shame to admit that I have been a fortunate child. Fortunate in every sense - family, friends, love, career.

I may not be on a hill's top with respect to my career right now. I may not have the best car in the world or the best phone or the best house. But, does it matter?

I know people are struggling every day to be where I am right now. It doesn't make me feel happy, but it does make me realize how fortunate I am. I end up pondering over the fact how different my life would have been, had I not been this fortunate. I believe in God. I believe in Karma. I believe in everything that's 'old-school'.

Some people have a problem with calling themselves 'lucky'. Understandable.

I understand why people find it difficult to accept that they are lucky, because if you're lucky- you get it all easy - that's what people tend to think, generally. It misplaces the credit which one deserves. What people miss, unfortunately, is that nothing comes easy. The harder you work - the luckier you get.

I got admission into a decent university. Lucky, eh? Well, no. It was hard work.

I attribute it to my parent's hard work who managed to convince a child like me to apply and then go out to study. My friends who supported me throughout the journey of the strenuous application process. They believed in me when I didn't even imagine myself to get selected. It was my family who helped me sail through the time and work hard on the application. I am fortunate, I agree. But, I wouldn't let my parents and friend's hard work to go to waste like that because they did work hard. I am fortunate to have them in my life. I am blessed to have them in my life.

I am lucky in my love life to not fall prey to fake promises and lies. I am fortunate enough to not be dependent on someone except my parents and friends. At times, I feel lonely - I'm human, after all! But, deep inside I know that I am fortunate to not need any one person to support me - in every sense whatsoever! Although, I support everyone who has someone in their life. They're fortunate as well if they feel so.

Some people never feel happy. They're upset if they don't have an iPhone, upset if they cannot have a car, upset if they do not get to study abroad. Phew! Aspirations are good- but they don't define you. I cannot be judged on the fact that I don't aspire to settle overseas. I cannot be judged for not having the same dreams as any other student would have - at my age. I know I will achieve what's mine - in time. If I deserve it - I will get it. 

Honestly, I feel that everyone is lucky if they wish to look at it that way. People who feel that they're unlucky and not fortunate enough to get what they want- maybe they didn't deserve it. Maybe they wouldn't know how to handle something - if they get it. Maybe, they have something better in store for them. God has a plan, always. 

I only want to thank God- to bless me with all that I have in my life. I know everything that I have or will have is all because of him. I will accept and be thankful for everything and everyone that I will be blessed with.

This post might have been really boring and I'm not sure if it did make sense but I had a good discussion with someone who made me realize that being lucky is not a bad thing. In fact, it is lucky to be lucky! Not everyone gets to be where they want to be or want to have. Not everyone love where, and what they are. If everyone could be lucky, why wouldn't they be?

I would any day choose to be called 'fortunate' because I am grateful for everything and everyone that I have. I feel blessed and happy and content.

I am fortunate and happy to be called one !

Chalo, bahut hua :D

More later :)
