Why Am I Always Smiling?

Anyone who knows me sees that I almost always have a smile on my face and a laugh is always ready to come out my mouth. People always ask me why am I so happy. I smile all the time because of what I have survived, what I have accomplished, and what I have to look forward to.

I grew up in a poor part of Philadelphia. I had a tough time when I first went away to college. I joined the military which exposed me to many dangerous situations. I have almost been shot, stabbed, ran over, blown up, crushed, and nearly drowned on several occasions. But I am still here. And not only am I still here but I have done quite well for myself and my family.

I have a large, loving family that I wouldn't trade for all the money in the world. I have tons of friends around the world who would give me the shirt off their back with no hesitation and I whom I would do the same for. I have traveled the world many times over. I have met many amazing people from all walks of life. I have two beautiful homes in awesome neighborhoods that are way different from where I grew up. And I have several successful businesses that allow me to do what I love. 

I look forward to seeing my sons grown up to become loving, upstanding and educated men. I can't wait to have grandkids to spoil. I can't wait to read tons more books. I can't wait to make many new friends. And lastly, I can't wait to help tons more people achieve their dreams. That's why I am always smiling!
