It’s almost been a year since DH was laid off with no warning and no severance. Our family has spent the last year in survival mode, living off our food storage and cutting out the few simple perks we enjoyed. I really hoped – and believed – that by this one year anniversary, everything would be back to normal and our family could start living again.
In the last few months, our family has moved from unemployed to underemployed, leaving us still short 50% of our previous income and with most of the challenges we’ve had all year. For whatever reason, the Lord still has lessons for our family to learn from this experience and so we stay.
And while I can’t change much of our situation, I can change my attitude and outlook.
I can choose…
to have a happy, full life for me and my family right now instead waiting for normal return.
I can choose …
to give thanks for what I have and and trust that the Lord has blessed me the the talent and strength to rock what I got.
I can choose…
to face this next year or two or ten and see this unwelcomed change in our family’s fortunes as our greatest adventure yet.
I Choose To Thrive.
I created to this blog to remind myself just how blessed I really am, that necessity really is the mother of invention and that not being able to run to the store and buy something new and full price may just be the best thing to ever happened.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you’ll share your ideas on how you choose to thrive as well.
