Are we "Blessed" or "Lucky"?
Posted by Kelly Hawkins on
After years of designing shirts that that either display that you are Lucky, you are Blessed, or you are Lucky AND Blessed, it got me wondering the real difference.
...so I googled it, because what else do you do when you need an answer or spelling or diagnosis to any type of issue you might have :)
Hey Google, "What is the difference between being Blessed and Lucky?"
1- Being Blessed is getting help when you really need it. Being Lucky is you are being bought out.
2- Being Blessed means there are people who Care about you. Being Lucky means you are Controlled NOT Cared.
3- Being Blessed means hardwork through out the life. Being Lucky means you don't know how to work hard to achieve things.
4- Being Blessed means you take your own decisions and people help you succeed. Being Lucky means you are Controlled, you don't take your life decisions and hence never bother to be responsible.
Eh, I don't know about those google answers... so I did a re-search with different wording (because that's what we do):
Blessed: very welcome, pleasant, or appreciated (Merriam-Webster)
Happy; prosperous in worldly affairs; enjoying spiritual happiness and
the favor of God (Webster)
Lucky: the things that happen to a person because of chance: the accidental way things happen without being planned
AHH, I like those answers much better. For myself, I always try to make a conscious effort to speak in positive tones (I'm not crazy busy... life is just full!). I know that doesn't always happen, but I am trying! The power of words is very influencial... with each statement we are showing our beliefs and ideals.
In the big scheme of things, I'm sure saying blessed instead of lucky has nothing to do with our salvation, however, projecting your faith and positivity can never be a bad thing!
Yep, I'm planning on displaying my Lucky AND Blessed status this St Patrick's Day, how about you? https://www.riverimprints.com/collections/st-patricks-day
