So, I recently met someone on Omegle.com who really makes me grateful for the things I have.  Of course, there is no way to know if they are just pulling my leg.  Even if they are, then it still makes me grateful, cause only someone truly fucked up would make this shit up.

This person had a worse upbringing than me, and that is saying a lot,  and it never got better.  Between dealing with their friends suicide, and just fucked up relationships, and coping with the news that they are going to die from cancer; I don't know how they do it.  All that shit, and to top it all off, they still have an amazing attitude, and carefree personality.  It makes you wonder, why the worst things happen to the best people.  I have always said that you are only handed the things that you can handle, but Jesus Christ, what type of person does it take to handle all that, and still feel like they can't be stopped.  

It all goes back to one of my favorite sayings "Don't worry about the things you can't change, and change the things you can."  Life is a lot less stressful when you realize this, and from my experience it is more fun to live life that way.  Lindsey always gives me shit about my Confucius attitude, but I enjoy it, so I don't mind.

I guess what the point of this is, it can always get worse, and my new friend is living proof.  Thank whoever your God is for your life and the things you have.  Everything can be taken away, as sad as that is.  Be grateful for everything, every breathe, every cool breeze, the sand between your toes, the hair on your head and the little moments throughout the day that make you smile.  I am going to step down from my soap box now, but leave a comment. 

 What are you grateful for?
