It is no secret that right now times are tough. The economy is worse than it has been since the Great Depression, the unemployment rate is higher than it has ever been, gas prices and food prices are always rising making it difficult to even afford the gallon of milk that you took for granted so long ago.
Even if you still have your job, your savings, your retirement and a hybrid car you are still being affected by the state of the world through people you know, love and care about.
During times like this it is important to stay positive[positive thinking]. Concentrate on the good things in your life, the things you should be thankful for.
Maybe you are thankful for a great and loyal dog or maybe you are thankful for your new baby niece, or maybe you are able to concentrate and be thankful that you woke up this morning.
Know that things will get better. They always do and they have to. So know this while you are concentrating on the good things in your life.
Something that is so important and many people do not do this is taking time for yourself.
