Grateful for Sheer Good Luck

You can get into a real philosophical discussion about it… are people lucky or do you make your own luck?


Like most things in life, I reckon that there’s little black and white in making your own luck, it’s all shades of grey.

Except when it comes to raffles. That’s just luck. So long as you’ve got the ticket, you’re in it and you might just win it.

And I did. Won a prize at our rugby league club dinner dance. A nine-week personal training package at our very local Vision Personal Training studio.

A few years, even months, ago, I might have thought this was less of a prize than a punishment. But just at the moment, I reckon it’s a sign! (Cue spooky music…)

My littlest are soon to go to school; this is a change of life for all mums. Life is definitely much easier and mums can focus more on themselves. There’s every reason to finally, finally get a grip and lose a few kilos. Get down to a healthy weight range for my height. Finally.

I think I’ve taught myself to maintain weight, and have learned to enjoy a bit of exercise.

So, maybe Lady Luck has sent me this personal training to tell me… yes, the time is now… no more excuses.  A helping hand, accountability, a motivator.   So I will give this lucky chance my best shot, be very grateful for it.

Other prizes in the raffle included wine, chocolate and meals out.

Which raffle prize would you have preferred to win?
