Above is my drawing I did for St. Patrick’s Day. I wanted it to be of a fairy tale mystic feeling using a dragon sleeping on a bed of four leaf clovers because how much more magical is that!
As the day came to an end, I thought of all the stories and myths behind this day. I feel that we can be lucky in all of our lives. We do not need to find the leprechaun at the end of the rainbow or a four leave clover to have luck.
Luck is within ourselves waiting for us to find it and bring it forth. One way finding your luck is meditating to be still to where you can find your innermost needs that your heart has been yearning for.
Another way is to write down what lucky incidences have come your way that day. Where it feels like a serendipitous/ah ha moment coming together too perfectly to be a coincidence.
Just recently I had a lucky moment during the SXSW festivities here in Austin,TX. My coworker and I decided to walk around during lunch to take advantage that we are located downtown where it was all happening. We stumbled upon an event that my coworker had heard by mouth that morning about it being fee and free cappuccino. We couldn’t say no to…yummy coffee!
I had no idea what the event was for when all of a sudden I saw their slide show about an author who was going to speak about finding what you were born to do. It all clicked it was Chris Guillebeau who has been interviewed by some of my favorite people like Marie Forleo. Sure enough he soon stepped on stage at the event and was talking about his new book, Born for This. I couldn’t believe we were hearing him speak for free and not only that he handed out a handful of free books that he autographed himself. Come to find out he was originally to speak earlier but he had to be moved to a later time, the time I happened to be there. This was a truly magical lucky moment.
So write down, take a photo or draw your lucky moments that you “stumble” upon and feel free to share with others! It’s like a leprechaun steering you to your pot of gold just need to look out for the signs!
I plan on writing a review of this book after I am done reading and next week to showcase all the free SXSW festivities that I attended!
