Make Your Own Luck

There’s no such thing as an omen, a premonition is a suggestion you are making to yourself, and yes, you can be wrong, I make terribly off predictions about other people all the time because at the end of the day you’re not inside their heads, you live inside your own.

You want to know how your day is going? Don’t consult some bollocks about how the stars were aligned when you were born according to out of date charts and generalised nonsense, make your own luck, strive to smile at people you encounter, do something that you know you enjoy, you can give yourself a good day, it’s not the faux-predictions of your local paper that do that for you, with the knowledge that you should be having a good day, you act on it as such and as I have said before and will say again, you make your own luck, you mould your experience of the day around you so that it suits what you feel it’s going to be.

Sometimes it’s hard to smile, but it’s not because of the way the stars have planned for you to feel, it’s because something’s triggered a chemical imbalance in your brain, usually something sad, yes, I know that sounded patronising but I’d started the paragraph off that way anyway it wasn’t going to shift any time later.

There is no pot of gold at the end of a rainbow because the rainbow doesn’t touch the ground, however, if you work towards that fortune and happiness you can achieve it, that’s not to say you will, probability after all is the true master of the universe, but you have a much better chance of having a good time if you actively seek to do things that will make you and others happy.

And now time for the obligatory Chuck Norris appearance.

The sun coming out helps you too no? Your attitude for that portion of the day becomes overtly optimistic or at least more so than it would have been otherwise, because that’s the way we are, that’s the way we’ve evolved and unless we shag only generally optimistic people for the next few million years that’s probably how our species is going to stay.

And there’s nothing wrong with you succumbing to the biological programming you are based on, but if you want to overcome it, don’t dwell in your misfortune or the fact that the evening post told you you were going to let go of something very important, throw the paper away and ask out that special someone, buy yourself a pint and go and do something you’ve missed taking part in.

Thank you.
