I believe that everyone can influence his luck by himself. I do have a small pillow that I keep with me all the timeā€”even when I am away from home. It gives me comfort and a feeling of home, and it makes me feel safe and calm. I can clutch it to my breast every time I need some consolation. It makes me happy, but not lucky.
