Dear July.


Dear July. 

I'm a firm believer that we all have the power to make our own opportunities and our own luck. I think I'll always believe in that. However I also think part of me will always believe in the existence of good fortune. At least, that's how I'm interpreting it because sometimes opportunities can be flung our way when we least expect it. 

An opportunity has been flung my way. I didn't expect it, but my goodness do I appreciate it. And I say that it's just a spell of good fortune or at least simply because I happen to be in the right place at the right time, because I don't believe I've done anything to deserve it. It has however come along at a time when I needed something. I haven't known what that something was, but I think it's this. It's going to be a lot of work, but I think I might be able to do it. And it's not that I can't say what it is, but I have this terrible irrational fear that if I say (or type) it out loud that it won't happen. 

And so I'll just say this. Here's to things working out. For all of us. Goodness knows I think we all need it. And here's to some sunshine, because I think we need some of that as well.

  1. Oh god yes do we need some sunshine! I'm wondering when the British summer is going to pull herself together...wearing an anorak in July is not the one!

    I'm a big believer in fate and I do genuinely think everything happens for a reason...I hope things work out for you, girl!

  5. I remember when I first got into college, I didn't announce it like so many of my classmates would post on Facebook and even add a milestone to their timeline. High school still wasn't over and I didn't want to jinx anything! I wish you all the best on this exciting adventure! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's

  6. It's great that you've got a good opportunity and I wish you all
    the best on whatever it is. And don't think that you don't deserve it.
    You do. :)

  7. I think I see most of the opportunities I get as a sign of good fortune. Maybe it's our internal fear that we do not really deserve them so instead of thinking it's because of our own merit we think of it as good fortune. Not that it's bad.

    And I am happy for you. (I have the same thing about saying things out loud.)
