On the whole most people know, I try to stay positive. I really do. I can not see the point in too much moping and expending precious energy on griping over what can't be changed.
But lately things have been tough and I have to ask the question:
When are we going to catch a break?
And it isn't just us. A myriad of my friends are all struggling the same. Bills are stock piling, jobs are scarce. Positive attitude waning.
People say every generation goes through this stressful economic period at sometime or other in their life. How do they get through it?
I like to think that we can say, there are more important things than money. There are. But money, more to the point, lack of it is the biggest cause of stress.
Good health, people say, we should be grateful for. But with a son with severe Cerebral Palsy and husband with various on going ailments, I can do without stress causing me to feel ill.
I know this is a bad day. I have a bug and am feeling low. I can hear the wind howling past the windows and I am inclined to think this long, cold winter may never end.
But I do have to ask :
Are things going to pick up? For anyone?
