What do we do if we happened to be in this situation? Do we blame the government by not taking actions to our problem? Or we remain calm and think of possible solutions? Do we always look for the things that we do not have? Or we count the blessings that we received? Do we always complain because we are looking on how far we still have to go? Or we are thankful for how far we have come? tough times may come, but we always have to look for the positive side of life and be thankful for everyday because waking up each day is a great blessing from God. Good night pals!

When we first encounter God in our lives and get closer to him, we are bound with trials and obstacles. Maybe this God's way of testing and letting us experience all this hardships because it's for the best. Letting us experience tough times makes us grow and it will benefit us because we will know how to handle ourselves next time if we encounter it again. It helps us to be more careful and wise in life through encountering different kinds of life defining experiences. Take it as a challenge and at the end of the rain there will be a rainbow.

I used to complain all the time for years when things got rough! I felt like I was the only one going through a rough time! I wasn't and now I just deal with it! Some of the times I blame the economy for alot of the rough times! Like right now! We are going through a drought in most of the country and now we are blaming it on rain,really hot,humid temperatures and globle warming for that! Sometimes we all forget what we are thankful for! If more people would look at what they are grateful for maybe we would be more happy people in this world!

I think it matters on the situation. I mean if the government screwed up or left things undone that effect a person then yes we should blame them. Our entire country being in debt and people not being able to pay their bills becasue of new taxes and what not is the governments fault. Now if a person lost their job for not showing up or sleeping on while working then no that is the person's own fault and nothing to do with the government. We can blame other people but in the end it is how we handle the situations we are in the begets the end.

For all I know, the government can not just implement a certain law without being deliberated upon and without the agreement of different sectors. And the reasons for having these laws are basically for the benefit of the country as a whole. So whatever the reasons, it is how we handle the situation that would bring us to our desired goals.

Tough times calls for tough stance. Resiliency as it seems. We need also to help our country go aboout its goals. By simply, following the law, even the simplest thing can make a big difference. We need to help our countrymen by giving our little hands. Let us be the "solution" and not be the "problem". Easier said than done but we need to be there to be tough. Thanks
