Luck

YOU CAN PLAN all you want but there will always be exigencies requiring solutions on the fly.

One morning you decide to take a nice long walk but, only ten minutes out, you realize that you forgot to go to the bathroom.

Or you finally find that item you were looking for in the mall, but the clerk tells you that your credit card has been declined.

Or you're well into preparing a special dinner for guests soon to arrive when you discover you're out of an essential ingredient.

Planning is fine but plans can go awry. Merde happens. What you really need --day to day-- is luck.

Planning never beat dumb luck.

I'd say luck was you take the walk without an umbrella and it starts to pour; the item in the mall is damaged and they can't find another; the power goes out before your dinner is cooked.

I need some luck right now but I have had a lot in my life. Perhaps it is
long term planning that seems to go awry,

You know that old saying, men make plans and God laughs (or something like that). I have lately been getting caught in the rain because it rains every day but I go anyway. Sometimes a friend driving by will stop and offer me a lift and I say I'm not going to melt and it's okay. More than luck, we need the capacity to go with the flow, to deal with things with courage. I think you are doing that. Love from here.
