I use to think that I was unlucky. Unlucky in every single way possible.
This was me. I was 25, unmarried, not graduated from college, waking up at 4am to go to ESPN game day, working everyday, and just not really having meaning in my life. I was convinced that something was wrong with me. I didn't have a boy friend and I wasn't married. At this point my younger sister had been married for 3 years already!
And I had been an aunt for awhile.
I was having a really hard time being happy for other people. Seriously, this was taken at my best friends wedding...
Then one day everything changed. I decided that I needed to be happier and that I could be happier and that it was up to me to be happy and make that change. So I did. And I started to get lucky.
I graduated from college.
I met the LOVE of my life.
I got engaged.
I got married.
I got pregnant.
My amazing cheer team won 5th place at USA cheerleading nationals.
I had a beautiful baby girl.
I got pregnant again.
I graduated with my master's degree.
I had a beautiful baby boy.
And all of this happened in 4 short years.
I LOVE the movie Titanic. I just love anything to do with the Titanic basically. Billy Zane has a line in the movie where he says, "A real man makes his own luck." I believe that 100%! I changed my attitude and the way I lived my life and that changed my luck. attitude truly is everything. And now, here I am today, with an amazing husband and two insanely beautiful children. How grateful I am for my life. Is it perfect? Oh heck no. Far from it in fact, but it is good. It is wonderful!
Happy St. Patrick's Day!!! Go Change Your Luck!
