Have you ever noticed, when something amazing happens, you're 'lucky'?  I'm going on holiday to Portugal in five weeks "Urgh, you're lucky!". I've lost two dress sizes in four months "Wow you're so lucky". No, I'm not lucky.

Lucky gives the idea that it is chance. That it simply happened to you - but trust me, neither of these things just happened to me. I work so hard to be where I am, and go in the direction I'm going. When people say I'm lucky, it occurs to me that some people actually expect just to be lucky and recieve the things they want.

Do I believe in luck? Yes and no - it's more of coincidence. I believe that if a bad thing happens to you (coincidence) something good must happen also. Case in point: my mum died when I was fifteen, three days before my birthday. Coming back from that horrible place, to study hard and get the grade I am determined to get, work out and lose the weight I've lost, simply be happy and enjoy the life I have, I believe that has stemmed from that tragic moment my amazing mum left us. Is any of that lucky? No. It's turning something bad, twisting, pulling, shaping it, into something which will in turn make you a better person. That is not lucky.

Coincidence is a wonderful thing. I do think you can be in the right place at the right time and something amazing will happen to you. But - I don't want to live my life waiting on that one thing. I want to work hard for something, achieve it, and then feel good in the fact that I actually did it. I done something that I worked hard for. It shows the power in myself,and I never want to be that person that got something incredible from being in the right place.

What do we think? Luck or coincidence? Or just hard work?
