When others around you are winning…

A guy I know just won the lottery. Seriously, he got like $12m! Crazy 🤯

And if I’m being honest, when he told me the news the first thought that popped into my head was “What!?!? When is it MY turn to win the lottery! Life is so unfair!”

And then after thinking about it more, I’ve come to these conclusions:

  1. I will never win a monetary lottery for the simple fact that: I don’t buy lottery tickets!
  2. I already won several life-lotteries when I was born (thanks mum and dad!). And continue to win more every day.
  3. Yes, life IS unfair. The sun shines on good people and bad people, and it rains on both too. We can’t control that. But what we can control is how much we appreciate what we do have, how much we contribute to other people’s good fortunes, and maintaining our sunny dispositions through thick and thin.

Your life is as rich as you make it.

Have a good one,
