As crazy as my life has been somehow I still feel like a winner, primarily because of the company I'm blessed with. My family is amazing, my friends are awesome. Money is tight but we're still here. I can't work, but somehow we keep managing to survive. I have food in the fridge and a car in the driveway. I'm luckier than 70% of the world. I'd say that's a winner!
If you are content with what you have and able to enjoy the basic pleasures in life, you are always a winner.
