Cheer Up Mrgone - as many have already replied telling how they have had to live through the exact same tough times as you are in right now and yes me
too, been there, done that. Yes, it's a real tough world out there, and yes you have just about hit rock bottom. However, in reality you know way
down deep inside of you, that right now is when you need to " Count Your Blessings ".
First I am going to explain to you the serious bottom line facts that you need to think very seriously about, and these facts will give you the
Motivation to pull yourself right back up in no time at all.
Yes, I know that this may sound like some off the wall corny type of advice for you to hear right now, but you know way down deep inside that this is
the truth you need to hear. Years ago I used to visit people in the hospital and nursing homes handing out tracks with the local church I went to back
in those years. I will never forget seeing and talking to this one young man who had been in an accident and he was paralyzed from the neck down. He
was laying in his hospital bed flat on his back and he could only watch TV by a mirror that was hanging from the ceiling. He also had a pencil in a
tray in front of him that he had to grip it in his mouth, if he wanted to hit the nurse call button. When you see someone in that bad of a condition
in life, the Only Message you get from that, is that YOU should Count Your Blessings Every Day.
Be Thankful that you can even walk and talk and eat and laugh. Be thankful that you have your health and you still have your Family. Yes you are in a
very tough situation right now, and it is not funny at all, but you know way down deep that you need to be Thankful for all that you Really Do Have
Ok, now to try and Cheer you up a little bit with what you should Not Do.
Say you are still on the street by the time this winter gets here, and everything you have tried just does not work for you. Your car get repossessed
or stolen, your iPhone gets stolen or you had to sell it just to get some money for something to eat etc. Hey man, buy a Lottery Ticket somewhere
some time. Maybe you'll be the homeless person that buys that ticket and hits it big time, and makes the News with the Miracle story that will cheer
everyone else up. There is nothing that God can't do.
Or, say you are still really having it tough on the street and you've now lost even your car and iPhone and you have no prospects for any work
anywhere and no one can help you. It's now getting close to Christmas, and that just magnifies your heart ache and grief of your plight and the pity
party of being on the street is now kicking in big time on you and you can barely stand it anymore. Now is the time that you are beginning to think
about a life of crime, because nothing else is working for you. Hey, just get yourself a nice looking Red Santa Claus suit with the big white beard
and the big high top black boots. Also get you a big bag of pepperment candy canes and have them sticking all out of the top of the bag, very festive
and happy looking. Then right before Christmas,
walk into a bank and rob it. There is nothing that makes the news faster nation wide than when Santa Claus Robs a Bank at Christmas time. Just that
act alone will Cheer countless people up and give them a real good laugh and right at Christmas time too ! lol
Seriously though, you know that you cannot do the santa robs a bank routine, because you will get caught and you will ruin your life forever then.
Ok - there it is, the rest is all up to you. Get that job Anywhere right now and Fast, put some money in your pocket and pull yourself out as fast as
you can. Then by this time next year, You'll be wiping your brow and thinking to yourself - Phewwww.... That was a Tough Year, but I've made it,
I've learned a lot, and I'm better off now, and I am Thankful for how Rich I Really Am !
