In Defense of Misfortune

I’m invited into people’s lives a lot less than my archnemesis Lady Fortune—I’d go as far as to say I’m never invited with all the confetti cannons, glasses of champagne, and fanfare reserved especially for her. But don’t get me wrong. I play a unique role, and deliver what my archrival could never deliver. A little compassion, a whole lot of strength, and a great deal of forgiveness are inspired by the misadventures sent by me. I shift perspectives like nothing else on earth can. So I’m not without value here. I’ll safely bet your long-held perceptions about me will change when you dig deeper into my soul in In Defense of Misfortune.
