    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...

    "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...

    I guess we are fortunate to be well inside

    and out there are many who can't fix what they have even with surgery, but if you can go through life without enhancing yourself with surgery you are lucky

    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    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.
