Match Point- A strike of fate?

Its been a long time since something has put me in this kind of retrospective mood...We just saw the movie match point and I cannot help but agree that maybe luck, fate , stars, call it whatever you want, has more to do with our lives than what we actually comprehend. Though many times in past I have believed pinning down things that happen in our lives to a wimp of fate, is like taking the path of least resistance, I admit now maybe it requires some amount of courage to accept that most of the things that happen to us are in fact quite out our control.

The man who said "I'd rather be lucky than good" saw deeply into life. People are afraid to face how great a part of life is dependent on luck. It's scary to think so much is out of one's control. There are moments in a match when the ball hits the top of the net and for a split second it can either go forward or fall back. With a little luck it goes forward and you win. Or maybe it doesn't and you lose.

I will take it one step further, maybe we shape our actions and decisions around things that happen in an attempt to justify the quirks of the movie if you have not as yet.

LuckByChance, says the same. Some of us accept the fact that we're lucky. While the others think they're more hard-working and smarter than the rest.
