A Question Of Perspective - 1

[A Question of Perspective does not have any right or wrong answer. Each answer is a perspective that may be unique or shared. I invite you to share your perspective with all readers]

You run out of gas (petrol) just 10 meters from the gas station (petrol pump). Are you lucky that you ran out of gas so near the gas station and you can easily push your car in? OR, are you unlucky that the gas didn't last just a few more meters which would have enabled you to refill gas without any trouble?

You are lucky. Given that you were too careless to fill gas in time, you deserve to have run out of gas 5 miles from anywhere... he he

I don't believe in luck. I believe in God. If I ran out that close to a gas station, I would believe that I was blessed and protected by God.

Neither. It happened exactly how it had to happen.

The universe wanted to send you a warning about how you are running your life--maybe you are running on empty.

This time the challenge was relatively easy, but if you are not careful, but you could get stranded in a more difficult situation.

I guess it totally depends on what part of town I'm in and what kind of mood I'm in. LOL

It took time for me, i had to be sure, i measured they were 4 circles, laid on a background of a mesh almost spiral-like pattern, sharing the same center as circle... [thats closest i can explain what i see]

Call it luck or out-of-luck, its perspective, and you I hope, kept your calm and did not curse your luck. But if I were on a trip, and ran out of petrol say a good 30 miles before, and no petrol bunk in sight, then its lack of judgement, it would be called irresponsibility, had there been a family and it happened often.
