    I like in eastern Kentucky,

    for the past three days, it's been raining and storming. It's gotten so bad, it's flooding. Many people have lost their homes in the county I live in. There's supposed to be more storms today, so it's only going to get worse. As of right now, me and my family are all right. But...

    For Everything

    I know the times that I don't seem to appreciate what I have outweigh the times that I really do and absorb my fortune, but I really am and I need to take more notice of this.  My parents, my horse, my dog, my truck, my personality, my skills, qualities, faults and flaws...

    I Guess I Am

    I was robbed a few days ago. Some guys on the street grabbed me and we struggled over possession of my phone. I let go and backed off as soon as I felt a knife in his right hand (or atleast it felt like a knife, I will never know). Some guy pulled up so they fled. And it made me...

    "I Am Very Fortunate"

        I am because the night of my tragic accident I shouted out 3 x for GOD to let me die. He did not give in to my requests.  He has been by my side more now than ever. I am a double upper extremity amputee. I do not let this hold me back. I actually feel...

    Very Lucky

    I have a job I enjoy, a nice place to sleep, three meals a day, time to exercise and learn a martial art, time to write, and some spare money in the bank.  I think I'm very lucky to be able to do all of that.

    I Am Fortunate

     Why am I fortunate? I'm privileged, I've grown up quite comfortably, and the spells of poverty my family went through were never too unbearable. We've always had an upbeat pace and have always found ways of cheering ourselves up. I am fortunate because I have not...

    I Am One Incredibly Lucky Fellow!

    I came to Experience Project by accident but decided to stay and look around. It was interesting. Lots of odd stories and plenty of absurd claims but there were also some very sensitive and well written works. I told my own story about my wife passing and the deep love I felt...

    All I Have

    I am thankful for my good fortune. I am in full use of all my senses and all my body parts. I am able to think and speak. A wealth of riches within my own existence - how lucky am I ? - even luckier still to know how lucky I am.

    I Accept That I'm Not At Peace

    There are things in my life that I could do to make it all sunshine and rainbows, but I'm holding fast to neutrality at the moment I trust where my feelings come from, and trust that I can change them if willing to endure a little pain. Not everything is comfortable, but there...
