Luck.

I have a repeated argument with a friend over the role of luck in our lives.

He claims we should be thankful for the luck in our lives, and acknowledge serendipity's fickle heart which could change our position on the wheel in mere moments.

I respect that position and acknowledge random luck affected my life, and still does. I am cognizant and thankful. I just don't see it as a factor.

Luck is out there, and what most people call luck is life hammering you with realities. I prefer to think of luck as opportunity - something you can identify or create.

I do not wait for the world to be kind to me, and while I acknowledge luck as it is, I can't acknowledge it as the main drive behind getting me where I am, or where I'm going.
