" How can you say luck and chance are the same thing? Chance is the first step you take, luck is what comes afterwards."
-Amy Tan, The Kitchen God's Wife, 1991
We need to be ready and willing to take that chance when it comes along - seize the day - take hold of the opportunity! And then, see what happens! Whether or not it turns out the way we had hoped, maybe that has something to do with luck. But we'll never know unless we try. And we'll learn and grow and stretch ourselves by taking those chances - and isn't that lucky anyway?
