Catch your luck.
Isn’t that a great saying?
I’d never heard it before, but when I saw this print from Pastel Trail, I instantly loved it.
For two reasons:
One, I think it’s true. Luck may play into a lot of things, but hard work is usually a much better way to make sure those dreams you’re chasing happen. Some of the luckiest people are also the hardest workers.
Two, and not nearly as sentimental, isn’t this the perfect print to put out for St. Patrick’s Day decorating? I’m already planning for the greenest time of year, of course. Which is also why I had to put this printable on my green nightstand.
Back to the whole working hard to chase your dreams thing.
‘Catch your luck’ is especially fitting for me this year. I mentioned in my Haven Conference recap blog post that I quit my full time job in the spring to start freelancing and focus more time on this blog.
Giving up a regular paycheck is a scary thing, people. But I (we, really) took the risk and decided to catch my luck – and chase my dream of being a successful freelancer.
And guess what? That whole catching my luck thing, it’s working out.

Luck is part of it. It’s all ‘who you know’ and ‘being in the right place in the right time’, absolutely.
But hard work is the other (bigger) part. And believe me, I’ve been working hard. But it’s been SO worth it.
I get to have a bit more flexibility in my work schedule, I get to work from home a lot, I get to work with clients I’m really excited about, and I get to keep building this blog that I love. Ick, this sounds a little braggy. That’s not what I mean.
I’m saying this to hopefully inspire you and remind you that working hard can make you catch your luck.
It can make your dreams come true.
It can work out.
This pretty printable is a good reminder to keep chugging along and keep catching that luck.
This blog combines decorating and writing – two of my favorite things – in such a fun way.
