I am forcing myself to write this list while I wait for the nice Ford people to come get my keys out of my truck.



I am lucky because…

I have full coverage in the roadside assistance plan, so my keys will be out of my truck within 60 minutes, and I don’t have to pay anything.

If the biggest crisis in my day is locking my keys in my truck, I’m pretty luck.

I have a wonderful boyfriend who loves me.

I have the most amazing career opportunity.

I have Kelly, who is the most amazing friend.

I am one girl who will never run out of eyeshadow.

I have the best horse in the world.

I have a mom who will help me out with my bills when I’ve fallen behind.

I have not just one good job, but another one that wants me back, plus my own business. How many people have that at 20?

Despite not feeling particularly healthy, I don’t have cancer. I don’t have to go in for kidney dialasis. I don’t have to have weekly blood tests. I have all my limbs. I don’t have any major diseases. I don’t have heart problems.

I have great friends all over the world.

My job is to make other women beautiful, have parties, and share the amazing career opportunity I have- does it get better than that? My other job gives me free cookies.

I have never gone to jail. I have never gotten a ticket.

I work for a company that does everything it possibly can to make my life easier.

I am quite talented at keeping fish alive.

My fish are always happy to see me.

I live in a country where I have the freedom to believe what I want.

God reminds me on a regular basis why I believe what I do.

I never have to worry if I’ll have a roof over my head that night or where my next meal is going to come from.

Amanda calls me on a daily basis to motivate me and keep my butt in gear.

My boyfriend worries about me when I’m sick.

He would never intentionally hurt me.

I found him despite circumstances that would normally keep us from ever meeting.

I’ve been lucky enough to go on my favorite vacation three times in the last two years. A lot of people don’t even get to vacation once every other year.

My truck unlocking people are going to be here soon and I will be able to stop writing this.

Blogger makes my life easier.

Despite my cooking skills, I have never caused any house fires. Trust me, that’s lucky.

I live in a very safe city. You can leave your car running while you go in the gas station to pay for gas with no worries.

KFC is less than five minutes from my house. Chicken pot pies, baby.

I have an awesome cholestorol level. One less thing to worry about.

If I work hard enough, there will be a brand new Grand Am in my driveway by the end of 2002. I will have paid nothing for it. I will owe nothing for it. I will never pay insurance on it.

I’ve never broken any bones (Except that one time I accidentally broke mom’s little toe. Sorry, mom)

The nice lock guy just got my keys. Hooray, hooray!



Like I said earlier, you can’t control your circumstances, but you can control your attitude, so that’s why I made myself do this. Instead of focusing on everything that’s going wrong, I’m focusing on what’s going right.
