I feel like I am at a major crossroads. Things have gotten so bad for us financially, that the only way it could possibly go is in the direction of Better.
When I think about Life a year ago and compare it to Life now, the change is unsurmountable. One year ago, we were living the American Dream. The Job, the Debt, the House, Car, the Kids. The Starbucks, the Home Goods. The anything we ever wanted, on a silver platter. Life was so good, the only way it could go was Worse.
We were greedy.
Now our Life is at the bottom of Worse. Wondering how long we can make a loaf of cheap White Bread last between the five of us is becoming a standard. Looking around at our belongings, contemplating which would bring in more money if sold is daily.
None of it matters.
We have ourselves, and we are the only constant we can count on. We could be in a cardboard box, and still be OK.
I’m waiting for that Magic Moment when I realize everything is actually getting Better instead of Worse. I found a new Business that I think can help– Iam excited to watch it grow.

Don’t write yourself off yet.
It’s only in your head you feel left out,
Or looked down on.
Just try your best,
Try everything you can.
And don’t you worry what they tell themselves
When you’re away.[Chorus]
It just takes some time,
Little girl, you’re in the middle of the ride.
Everything, everything will be just fine,
Everything, everything will be alright. (alright) [Chorus x2]
Hey, don’t write yourself off yet.
It’s only in your head you feel left out, (feel left out)
Or looked down on.
Just do your best, (just do your best)
Do everything you can. (do everything you can)
And don’t you worry what their bitter hearts (bitter hearts)
Are gonna say.
You know they’re all the same.
You know you’re doing better on your own, (on your own)
So don’t buy in.
Live right now.
Yeah, just be yourself.
It doesn’t matter if it’s good enough (good enough)
For someone else.
