As we near almost a month mark since the government shut down I just wanted to remind everyone – there’s always tomorrow. Things may look bad, bills are going unpaid, mortgages and rents are due, but wake up each day and try to look on the bright side of things. Find the people in your life who really matter.
(Bill Withers – Lean on Me resung by Michael Bolton)
They are real brothers/sisters where and when it counts. They don’t say you can depend in me. They actually mean it. Also like the song says, you won’t know until you ask someone for help. Don’t be ashame to ask. It may make a difference one day to the next just helping a friend .
So many are in real need now so keep your eyes pealed for those in real need folks. You may think you know but you don’t. They are really good at hiding from everyone because of their pride. People are in dire straits. I’m not talking about the banks and the big corporations. I’m talking about consumers, the man on the street. The small guys.
Talking with one of my Lyft drivers and he said things are at least 50% slower since the shutdown. Just imagine what that does to his income and his ability to produce.
Savings are being depleted to cover a range of expenses. Some have had to tap into savings at the cost if being taxed. many do not have the luxury of savings. There is nothing.
So just be patient with yourselves out there. Be careful what you allow the media to leak into your souls right about now. It’s often time information meant to steer your thinking away from what’s really important. What is that?
We are important. We have to take care of each other because those in power take care of themselves by both sides. They don’t really care about the masses. So take care if yourself, your family and friends. Be good, kind and loving
The craziness will end. Try to stay intact until such a time.
Peace to you
