Luck, Love, & Timing


Luck because, in order to feel lucky, at all- about anything that happens to you, great or small- you simply *have* to be wired for optimism on some level. Even if you're not the type to walk around with sunrays coming out of your butt on a daily basis.

Love because you have to truly love what you are doing with your whole heart. Even when it's not fun, even when you are uncomfortable. Even when it's frustrating, when you're "done"- toast, burnt to a crisp. That's when you put it away for a little while, switch gears, regenerate. Then you go back to it the next day with a little extra kick-ass in your bag. Because there is absolutely no quitting allowed on something you love.

And Timing? Well, that circles back to luck.
