“It must be tough to convince someone who has been struck by lightning to stop playing the lottery.”
I saw this on the internet today.
It resonates with me because I say a version of it a LOT.
A couple of wild, improbable things happened to me when I was younger.
Those events help make me who I am. And people often forget it when they see me or think about my motivation in life.
I’m not sure how I put my head back together after either event.
But don’t come at me with “THAT’S not likely to happen” arguments.
If you get struck by lightning once in life, it makes you cautious. If you get struck twice, it makes you careless.
That’s a grain of truth that might help you to understand me.
