St. Patrick’s Day: Luck vs. Fate – Finding that “One”

When you are looking for your soul mate, you’ve probably heard that there’s a cover for every pot, or someone out there for everyone. The question, of course, is how you find your ideal beloved in a world of millions. This is where the controversy comes in. Some believe it is just luck to find the perfect person you’ve been looking for. Others, however, believe in the magic of fate.

Movies are full of love stories where the lovers seem like fate brought them together. There are many classics – When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle, Pretty Woman, The Notebook – where it seems as if the couple is simply meant to be together. Even in Romeo and Juliet, the theme of fate runs through the story (although that one probably isn’t the best example). Watching these perfect couples, who met by chance and who came together to be such a perfect fit, it seems hard to imagine that the universe didn’t plan for them to be matched up.

Real-life examples of fate capture our hearts and minds as well. The couple who sits next to each other in kindergarten and who are reunited and get married a few decades later; the lovers who catch each other’s eye on the train and who fall in love instantly and stay that way for 50 years. Everyone’s heard some variation, and almost everyone dreams of finding it for themselves and sealing the deal with a beautiful ring and a lavish wedding.

And yet, who is to say that it was fate that brought those couples together, rather than sheer chance or opportune timing? Perhaps, as Annie Reed said in Sleepless in Seattle, “Destiny is something we’ve invented because we can’t stand the fact that everything that happens is accidental.” Or as Dennis Reed mused in the same movie: “So what we think of as fate is just two neuroses knowing that they are a perfect match.”

Could it really be true that the perfect couple who sat together in kindergarten and who came together decades later may have just been lucky? There’s an argument to be made that it was pure chance – a late bus or an unexpected rain storm – that brought them together, and if the universe had gone just a little differently then they never would have connected.

Of course, perhaps luck and fate go hand-in-hand. Finding love can be hard, and if there is someone you are fated to be with, then you are very lucky to find that person. Once you do, it is up to you to find the perfect ring, jump in with your whole heart, create your own luck and turn your love story into the happy ending you’ve been hoping for.

If you find yourself lucky in love this St. Patrick’s Day, visit Icing On The Ring in the L.A. Jewelry District to find the perfect engagement ring to seal your fate.
