Pure Luck









Did you ever wake up feeling like you are the luckiest person alive? Lucky for absolutely everything (except the bills that are stacked up by the fridge - we don't like those EVER!)? Lucky for the friends you have and for those you haven't even met yet? For your family as dysfunctional as they are they are all still incredible people that have shaped you today - whether you like it or not? Lucky for your health and the ability to go out and do all the crazy shit you want to do? Lucky for having time in the morning to play with the dogs in the snow while it's still dark out and world is still asleep? Lucky for the opportunities you are presented with?
I don't know why, perhaps its because I get a little nostalgic during the holidays (yes even the ice princess has a chink in her armor). I am usually aware that I have it pretty good compared to some and I admit I love my life the way it is - crazy shit, hard times and all. But today I guess it just became more vivid to me. It happens once in a while - I love those days! Do you think if you awoke each day feeling that lucky that you would begin to take it for granted? I hope not.

flahute said...

Again, I say "Ewwww.... ick."

Jennie said...

ya, again hahaha! good thing I'm still as tough as nails.....

Ari said...

Yeah, whatever, J.W. - you're right up there with me on the mush scale right now - so don't even start!

flahute said...

Oh dear Lord ...

Where did all these girlie-girls come from?

Ari said...

you watch yourself Steven - you'll be next...don't make me come over there!

Jennie said...

just watch how girly I am this weekend... by the way I'm jamming to JT. future sex/love sound.... nails!

Ari said...

Ok, J.W. you're really starting to worry me...walk away from the JT - it's almost as bad as wearing a sequined shirt. Didn't Liberace wear sequins? And fur? Oh God and leopard print! Not the leopard print!!!

flahute said...

If you were to come over here, I might get all mushy mushy ... but then Jennie would kick my ass left, right, up, down and sideways.

Jennie said...

Jennie said...

"Kinda au-natural" ???

Does that mean yohimbe root instead of vitamin V?

Jorge Rojas Jr said...

Just make sure you eat your fiber or you'll have one hell of colonic!!! Struggling...

Who is this JT? Please spell the persons name out so the whole world can read!

Yes Ari... I do feel what you wrote about. The way I do it is stop moving; I then notice how good it feels to breath and then the rest flows. (Like a colonic <- just kidding) But for real

Anyhow beautiful post!

flahute said...

this JUST IN! TIM saw a BEaR next to the LAKE!

Ari said...

First of all, thanks Jorge for the positive message - oh and JT is Justin Timberlake. It's ok to laugh outloud now :) and Steven - what bear? what lake? have you been inhaling the fumes from the meth lab? :P

Not since August 1991, my dear ... although that was the product, not the production ...
