    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 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...

    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...

    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.

    Someone Else

    Think about someone else for once. I've thought about how fortunate I am. I've thought about it before. ...but never like I did just then.. Someone else is unfortunate. They don't ever feel like smiling. They were born to be a social outcast. Someone else is so hungry that...

    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.
