100 THINGS CHALLENGE 017/100



Today´s quote is a very old one, but have been used in my family for many years.

"Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity"
Seneca the Younger (Roman dramatist, philosopher, & politician (5 BC - 65 AD))


Seneca the Younger

My Dad loved that quote, as he believed in working for the results you got in life.

My sister is a social worker with no empathy what so ever, that had told my Mum that I would never get the pension, because I was not really disabled!!

When I got my disability pension, after being on work tryouts and through a lot of interviews with a doctor and psychologist and a letter from the hospital and my oncologist, my sister told my Mum; “Annette was just lucky.”
My Mum just looked at her and said; “That had nothing to do with luck, but everything to do with competent people doing their job.”'

That actually shut her up!!

“Annette was just lucky.”
What a b*tch! She still thinks that you were actually lucky that you got cancer, doesn't she?

Yeah,the bitch thinks that I got cancer just to get attention from our family..
She can´t handle that the focus is not on her all the time, so me getting cancer was just to spite her....
