Lucky Charms

Do you have a charm or piece of jewelry that you absolutely cannot leave the house without? Maybe, there is a nice story behind the charm or it reminds you of someone special each time you look at it. The item may not necessarily be lucky, but it is a reminder to give you confidence and reassurance every day. My “lucky charm” is the crucifix ring that I wear on my right pointer finger. My mom bought it for me one Christmas, and anytime I forget to put it on, I catch myself feeling for it with my thumb – it is special to me because it represents my religion and is a reminder to remain positive.

“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence” -Helen Keller
