Shooting stars, 4-leaf clovers, and wishbones aside -- we can create our own luck (with a little help of awareness and some action steps). Have you ever used luck -- "good" or "bad," yours or someone else's -- as an excuse to rationalize your own shortfallings?
This week marks the arrival of the first Friday the 13th of 2015. For many of us, even the mention of this "unlucky day" brings a quiver of anxiety. We say it's hoo-hah, but a little voice in us whispers, "what if?..."
By making resolutions, we attempt to make ourselves feel we are in control, that we can decide how we will live our lives. But this week, I am not feeling like I'm in the driver's seat, as a flurry of sickness and death has overshadowed the holidays.
