Friday 13: Improve Your Luck

Friday the 13th: Luck By Chance? by Janice Taylor
Luck is thought to happen by chance; it’s not thought to be something you can plan for or obtain by intention. Some say luck is decided by our fates, or believe that some fortunate souls are mysteriously born under a lucky star.
At quick glance, it might look like there is truth to that. After all, some people’s lives overflow with abundance, vitality, successful careers, and loving relationships.
However, luck is not just a random event. Webster’s Dictionary defines luck as “a force that brings good fortune or adversity; a force that operates for or against an individual.” So, if luck is a force, you should be able to tap into it … at any time!
After a great deal of research and experimentation, I am here to tell you that there are ways in which you can tap into positive force and improve your luck. Indeed, luck is the product of our own mental focus and attitudes. Imagine now that by changing your focus, you can intentionally increase the amount of luck you experience in all areas of life.

How to Make 1001 Friends

It’s official!!! I have 1,001 friends! AMAZING!!!
True – many of my new friends are ‘virtual’ friends; people with whom I communicate on-line and not necessarily in person. Nevertheless, a friend is a friend, and I am grateful to call each and every one of these 1,001 Beliefnet members my friend!

“Good friends are like stars. You don’t always see them, but you know they are always there.” ~ Anonymous

That beautiful quote says it all. It’s just how I feel about all of you. You are there! I might not see you, but when I need you, or want to share a funny moment or interesting thought, you are there! And I thank you for that!!!
I shared this amazing news with one of my best friends (an invisible friend at that!), Our Lady of Weight Loss, and she suggested I share some of the following “friend-making” tips with you!

How to Make Friends – Cyber or Otherwise!

1. Be Yourself. As Oscar Wilde says, “Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken.” Each and everyone of us has our unique qualities, style of dress, way of being. Celebrate You! Share the Real You! In person and on-line!
2. Smile. This one may sound simple, but if you give off an ‘approachable vibe’ (virtual or live), you may find that more and more people are miraculously and mysteriously – approaching you!
3. Surround Yourself with Positive People! Often, negative people will just weigh you down and sap your energy. Be kind, but steer clear of those who are dragging you down.
4. Say Hello. I understand that it may be a stretch for those of us who are shy, but best to get out there and introduce yourself to people. Find a group like the Kick in the Tush Club (on Beliefnet or in your neighborhood) to join! And jump right on to the boards and say “Hey there!” (With a smile on your face.)
5. Speak Kindly. Say nice things about your friends and watch how many more gravitate to you. Again, positivity rules!
Sooooo, if you are my friend, THANKS!!! And if you’re not … let’s be friends! I’m hoping for 2,000 strong!

Kelly Clarkson’s Weight Gain

My, my … the tongues sure are a waggin’! The amount of stories on the web about Kelly Clarkson’s weight gain/ and the “is she pregnant?” queries this morning is ridiculous! Nevertheless, I feel compelled to add my two cents. Yes, she gained weight, but so what? Kelly is beautiful, talented and real. Perhaps, she’s not meant to be stick, Hollywood thin. Furthermore, why are we more obsessed with American Idol’s Kelly Clarkson than Rush Limbaugh? He’s gained more than a few pounds. In fact, he’s reached an unhealthy level of obesity! And he’s not beautiful, talented or real!!! What do you think about Kelly? about Rush? and celebrity weight gain?Do we all have to be stick-thin??? Weigh-in please!
