I don't give much credence to the concept of "luck"; I tend to believe that we make our own good fortune by our deeds and attitudes.
However, I watched a butterfly float in front of me the other day and it reminded me (though I'm not sure why) that many people have a "lucky" something. Maybe it's a butterfly pin. Or a collection of elephant knick-knacks. Perhaps it's a rabbit's foot (dear God, let's hope not.)
This led me to ask myself, "Is there anything I own that feels 'lucky' to me?"
The answer, in short, is "no".
I tried to think of something (other than my husband and son) that always makes me feel that Fortune is smiling upon me, but I just couldn't. There's no little trinket that calls to me, no special rock I found at the beach that's smooth on top and rippled underneath, no photograph that I keep with me wherever I go.
Of course, I have no clue what this means... or if it means anything at all!
But I am curious to know if any of my readers have "good luck charms" of any sort? And do they seem to "work" (even just on a psychological level)?
