what good thing have you done today?

several times in my life — for one reason or another and whether by design or fluke — good things have happened to me which at the time seem to lessen and/or counteract the big, bad and the ugly.

it is probably at those times, i often question if it is divine intervention or just plain luck or simply things meant to be. usually however, i just thank my lucky stars, look up, and utter a small thank you and a ברוך השם. and as they say: what goes around, eventually comes around.

Your Luck Quotient: 64%

You have a high luck quotient.

More often than not, you've felt very lucky in your life.

You may be randomly lucky, but it's probably more than that.

Optimistic and open minded, you take advantage of all the luck that comes your way.

[64% !?!? — sheesh! that doesn't sound great! so 6.4 times out of 10; no wonder i never win the lottery! :-] ]

i have truly come to believe this {what goes around, comes around}. do good & good shall come to you is another thing i remember hearing often.

so why am i talking about all this? just because, i guess the answer would be. part of it though also has to do with the constant barrage of death and destruction going on whenever i turn on the tv or radio or open up a newspaper. like many people, i try to tune it out.

recently i came across something i found interesting:

no, it has nothing to do with anything spiritual or oprah-esque [no comment], it's just a nice site to read about the good things people have done or that have happened to them. it happens every monday.

what nice thing are you going to do today?

my nice thing is going to be to share founder debbie tenzer's site with you.

it's a good read. check it out {not just the homepage!}.

hey beenzzz - welcome :]

i'm sure i could have had a lower score, too! i was surprised actually that i scored that high. certainly no luck here when i enter a contest for example or buy a lottery ticket!

i think some people are just naturally lucky.

Hey BB,
According to this I have 62% luck - I figure you make your own luck - so maybe I should just try harder 8^)

aja - i'll give you 1% and we'll both have 63%. call it even. lol.

hmmm....i think it's partly making your own luck. interesting though how different cultures see it. my chinese friends are very very superstitious about all this luck stuff.

ever read joyluck club?
