We experienced two strokes of luck of late. Both could have led to a few hours of hassle – but thanks to some dumb luck, we avoided that.
Misfortunes and bad luck have served up some great learning moments over the years. It is easy to dwell on such experiences and curse our bad luck.
But my journey into stoicism last year reminded me that it is equally important to think about misfortunes that * could * have happened. We are overly prone to taking our good luck for granted.
These two strokes of dumb luck reminded me of just that. It could definitely have been worse.
There’s more to be grateful for than we realize.
