“We’re all so lucky to be where we are today.” Paul Jolley from American Idol
March 21, 2013
I wasn’t a fan but he is cute and did a fairly good job. But I find this quote is golden, “We’re all so lucky to be where we are today.” I think anyone who was able to watch that on TV is really in that number of LUCKY people.
I personally live in a REALLY modest home, by American standards, but it is my home. I own it. The bank doesn’t own it – I own it. My Jeep Cherokee is old I guess, 1996, but paid for and suits me well. I have a social security income WAY below the poverty line but I occasionally get some work, within my field, and it fills me spiritually and fills in the gaps financially. I’m no longer motivated to sell myself. If people really need what I have to offer, they will find me.
That puts me, I believe, at approximately the top 1 or maybe 2% of the best off people on the whole planet, maybe. Maybe or maybe not financially, don’t have the figures, but certainly in terms of fulfillment. I LOVE that I am so fortunate.
Tell me how fortunate you are. I know you are fortunate or you wouldn’t have a computer, nor the time to read this.
