Good luck, bad luck, who knows?

Go and wake up your luck.’ – Persian Saying

Once upon a time, there was a wise old farmer in China who used an old horse to till his fields.

One day, the horse escaped into the woods. The farmer’s neighbours came around to his house and sympathised with the old man over his bad luck. The farmer replied, ‘Bad luck? Good luck? Who knows?’

A week later, the horse wandered home from the woods with a young stallion following it. This time the neighbours congratulated the farmer on his great and good luck. His reply was again, ‘Good luck? Bad luck? Who knows?

One day, the farmer’s son was riding the young stallion and fell off its back and broke both his legs. People began to gossip about his bad luck. Only the farmer did not join in, and his only reaction was once more, ’Good luck? Bad luck? Who knows?

Some weeks later, the Chinese army marched into the village and conscripted every able-bodied young man they could find to be sent to fight a far away war. Only the farmer’s son was spared because his broken legs left him unable to walk. The neighbours said nothing this time...

Who knows what the next day can bring? Not all seemingly good things are lucky and not all seemingly bad things unlucky. Keep an open mind and heart and remember, be careful what you wish for!

Love, Caroline Anna

      Thank you so much Glenda! It is an old Chinese proverb but I have certainly given it a lot of thought :-) xx
