You know, I could not agree more. Instead of complaining about it - do something. Anything. I've had this same discussion - every one's favorite tag line right now "in these tough times" and lemme tell you if I hear it one more time I'll smack the person who said it. In the face. I'm not kidding.

There is a difference between being broke and being BROKE. There are things in life you can live without - like cable, internet, cell phones, out to eats, brand names clothes, that pretty shiny car in the drive. These are called luxuries and sometimes we can't afford them. We will not die from it. In fact, I'm betting we'll find better ways to spend out time producing results that make us far happier. I'm not so sure we've even seen the HARD TIMES yet.

What I am sure of? Now is a great time to start that side business you've dreamed of. It's a great time to go back to school and make yourself that much more marketable. Here's a thought - go for something you actually like and enjoy what you do. So what if you only make min. wage - if you love it and it feeds your soul you'll be fine. It's not going to kill you to miss that meal at the steak house this week. Fire up the grill and make your own and spend that time with your spouse and your kids. Get to know each other at home. Pull together and plant a garden, do a puzzle, wrestle on the floor. Go - do something, anything but sit on your ass and whine.

And, for heaven's sake, just shut up about these hard times.

rant over. didn't know I had it in me.

Travel safe, and love to you and bfsk.


Thank you for the update on your BFSK. She's been in my thoughts and prayers.

As for the rest of it, I'm sure you already know my opinions on the subject. I understand that I am blessed to be able to work in a profession that I love with many opportunities and flexible hours. However, even if that wasn't the case, I don't think I'd ever be comfortable whining, blaming, or waiting around for somebody to rescue me.
