How bad are things really?

How bad are things?

Unemployment is high.
Foreclosures are on the rise
It’s been an extremely cold winter
Businesses are going bankrupt

There are a lot of bad things going on these days but how bad are things really?

How many people do you know who are truly starving?
How many people do you know who are sleeping on the street?
How many people do you know who are dying because they can’t get medical treatment?

I’m not suggesting there aren’t homeless, starving people out there but rather, for most of us, things really aren’t that bad. For most of us, our problems are relatively trivial in the overall scheme of things. When you start to feel bad for yourself and are feeling down realize, for most of us, life really is quite good. If you have food on the table, a bed to sleep on and a job to go, things could be a lot worse. Think about all that s good out there and then go do something good for someone else!

Have a great day!
