One thing that I will always defend is my faith in the good of humanity. I know that there are a lot of bad people in the world who do terrible things, but I have every reason to believe that the vast majority of people are honest and caring people. I have this problem with losing things. I am not an irresponsible person, but I never have a purse so it is extremely easy for me to lose my cell phone or my wallet and keys (they are attached to each other). In the past year I have left my cell phone at a convenience store, several school classrooms, Barnes and Noble in two different states (I spend a lot of time there), and a restaurant. Each and every time I have managed to get it back within a day or two with no damage to my phone. I know I shouldn’t brag or push my luck because of what they say about karma… but I can’t help but smile and wonder what honest and thoughtful person found my phone this time.
Additionally, I have lost my key ring which has a little wristlet containing my license, money, gift cards, a credit card, and my library card twice in the last month. The last time I lost it was yesterday. For my wallet, I stress out a lot more because I am afraid that I will have to renew my license and accept the fact that I will never be able to get the money or gift cards back. Today, I was stressing for most of the day until my mom texted me and said that the bookstore had found my wallet and called my mom’s number (because I keep her business card in the wristlet). I was ecstatic and left to pick it up right away. Once again, I just had to smile because whoever found it passed up the opportunity to take a 100 dollars, a credit card, my license, and several gift cards!!! How could I not have faith in humanity after those miraculous recoveries? And how can I be such a fortunate person to have found my things each time? And lastly, how could I be so stupid as to lose them in the first place?!
