It is true that luck plays a role in life (and I’m sorry that yours has been difficult). In the yoga tradition it is believed that life is a combination of fate and freewill (aka karma), and that we can increase our good luck through sadhana (spiritual practice). Personally, I wouldn’t take this lying down. And while a certain degree of acceptance is required to digest negative experiences, it is important to feel that we can take action to better ourselves and our situation, and not remain at the mercy of “horrible luck”. Sometimes misfortune is contained to a certain time period or cycle of our lives (and yes, they can be long ones of many years), but then can turn around on a dime. If you have any interest in astrology, I would certainly recommend visiting a vedic astrologer to gain some insight into this. Then cultivate the power of self by focusing on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual strength through yoga and meditation and/or other mind/body/spirit practices. Finally, ensure that you have a team of support around you to keep you motivated when the chips are down. Sometimes when it’s hard to feel inspired, others can provide us with some energy while we work to cultivate it in ourselves. Luck CAN turn with some trust and effort; Here’s wishing you all of the GOOD luck in the world!
