What is Luck ?

By Eugeniusgenius @eugenius_genius
What is luck ? I always begin writing a blog article by looking for the perfect image to represent what I am trying to say, an article without an image will leave me with feeling that something is missing, that something is incomplete.
I guess feeling incomplete is not something I am very fond of, the less I feel incomplete the better.
It's been a while now since I've been obsessing with finding a definition to what luck is, that will give me some closure to my streak of bad luck. But even to find this very definition you must have some luck after all. But lately I've been feeling like I have no luck at all.
Some people say that we are the ones to make our own luck, well, how much truth lies in that ?
I tend to over-think things, I spend hours giving a lot of thought to things that are not worth thinking about, but I guess it's what I do, it's a part of me, over-thinking things and I've come to the conclusion that there are certain people who are in our lives or are yet to come and these people hold our luck in their hands.
Have you ever thought of how lucky you are of having certain people in your life ? Who love you and cherish you, who help you when you need it the most ? I think this is the definition of luck - helping others with what they need.
Withholding luck is refusing to help, or offering the kind of help that is not needed or wanted.
If you really want to help just ask, don't assume, don't make suppositions, just ask "What do you need?", "What can I help you with?", "What can I do for you?", "What do you need me for?".
I also like to think that someday we will be rewarded for our patience, that someday life will make up for the bad times we had to go through. Some pain now, some happiness afterwards. But this might be untrue, saying this might be just the gasping voice of the little optimism that has left in us.
I wanna believe that people are not disposable, that everyone of us has a meaning. I don't wanna be another human waste, I wanna believe that I'm not that screwed up to get on with my life at some point.
I can help people, I know I can, and I wanna be given that chance.
What is your definition of luck ?
What can I do to have some luck ?
Or simply, what can I do ?
