I thought it was fare to explain why I feel so lucky. This is not something that I felt was always true until the last couple of years. You see I was born in Iran (Tehran to be specific) and at the time Iran and Iraq were not playing nice. So my parents decided to move to the United States. My mom's brother lives in Ventura county and the plan was to go there and live with him for a few months until we found a more permanent arrangement. But getting there was not easy. There is no American embassy in Iran so we went to Switzerland then to London and then to the US. I also have 2 half siblings that lived in London at the time and the plan was to eventually all live in California. Fast forward we ended up in Irvine living in a nice 4 bedroom house. We did not have much of a yard but we had a house and food and cloths.
Until you have lived in a country other than the US where freedom is endless then you cannot complain about life. Americans have it easy being able to go as they please. Having endless career options. Endless chances to live a great life. That right there makes you lucky. It has surely made me.
Now I am not going to say that this lucky life has been easy 24/7 but it has made me stronger and it has taught me how to live and enjoy every minute of it. Even the not so great days. So I ask of you due tell. Why do you feel lucky? I would love to know your story. Due tell!
