In a circle formation… I say a spelling word. The first person then says the word, and the next person starts spelling the word and so on … until the word is completed.
Then, the next person is supposed to say the word again, and then the next person after that uses it (correctly) in a sentence, and THEN the next 2 people say "Lucky… UN-lucky".
If it gets to that point, then the last person sits down, and just happens to be "unlucky." (and the person before them is thinking "Phew…. got lucky on that one."
However, if there are ANY errors along the way (or if someone interrupts)… then THAT person is out, and has to sit down for that game… and we start the word all over again.
You might be wondering why I'm bringing this up…
Well, isn't that how life is like sometimes?
You're just going along, doing things the correct way, and then all of a sudden you make a mistake. Uh oh. Need to apologize, and learn from THAT mistake.
Or let's say you're CRUISING along… finding your sweet spot… and then something just happens out of the blue that you least expected, that causes you to think… "Oh man, that's just unlucky." And then you're all depressed about it.
Or….. let's say you're just "crushing it" with whatever you're doing… and you happen to win that award, or get recognized… or just have someone come up to you without being prompted... and says "Hey, nice job at doing that. I appreciate what you do."
All of those things that I just mentioned … actually happened to me over the last week, and I think that's why my kids love the game "Lucky / Unlucky" sooooo much.
Because it's real life.
So, what do you think? Are you Lucky? Or Unlucky?
