Early AM Junk Drawer for October 29th, 2009

So most people have good times and bad times in their lives.. also, we are all gifted in some ways through our births, stations, or otherwise in life...

Personally.. I know that I have been gifted and blessed in my life.. I have a supportive family (for the most part), and no worries that I can do anything I put my mind to.. I've gotten to be out on my own since after I graduated HS last summer and made my way from Syracuse to Portland to Spain to Crete to Poland to San Diego to Tempe and since then.. finding my world is what my life is about now.. and I couldn't be happier for that... 

But nobody's life is all peaches and sunshine.. throughout my life I find myself in bad circumstances.. sometimes I've only ended up with just a small physical wound and slightly more hardened to the harshness that people bring upon one another.. othertimes.. I came out a lot worse... I can't say I always knew that I would be okay.. but I always had that supportive family to remind me of how blessed I really was.. and because of that.. I can use the harshness and pain I had to endure to find myself and to make the world I find around me better also...

Soo... do people find they are more defined by the ways that they have been gifted or by the hardships that they have had to overcome? Or do you want to share some crazy deep things about yourself? Or do you just want to blather on endlessly about your fantasy sports teams?

PS Like Morti, I'll tell my whole story for some “feel sorry for you” tail... pm me...
