I believe we can get through even a painful recession if we keep moving forward.
Find ways to improve your skills, learn more about your chosen profession, or go learn a new profession.
Take classes, read good information, talk to high achievers in your field, or in a field you think you may want to be in.
Work at what you can, and do your best when you work.
When you do whatever you do with intention and purpose, Work is Love Made Visible.
Spend less, save more.
Keep up your best attitude.
Be grateful for whatever you have. It's a lot compared to the lives of millions of people around the world, and yes, it is a lot even compared to millions here at home.
But that is not really the point.
You don't have to compare yourself to anyone to be happy. So don't.
Be happy with less, and take this opportunity to find peace not in things, but in family, friends, the beauty of the world and the universe.
Forgive any slights, insults or meanness. It's better for you and easier on you to let go of it.
And Give Thanks.
Work, Forgiveness and Thankfulness can carry us through this.
They are all expressions of Love, and you know as well as I do, that is all we need.
