Hey everyone,I was just sitting here thinking that I have heard people over the past few months complaining about everything from the economy to money to whatever. But, if you want my opinion it can always be worse. I think that more people need to just enjoy life and to be happy that they have air to breath and remember no matter what happens it can always be worse. Just wondering what you guys and gals think about life in general? What do you think could is always be worst?

There is a saying that fits this perfectly: "There's nothing so bad that it couldn't be worse." ~Irish Proverb I agree that things could always be worse. I try not to complain because I know that a lot of people, including me, are going through tough times right now. But I still go on with everyday things because even though it seems things could not be any worse, they can be. Just try to be optimistic :)

Hi, I agree with you at the point that people should enoy life and be more happy. Without money, we can be happy as well. We can read free books from the library, we can watch free movies from the internet, we can walking on the beach where no tickets needed... But I still believe that money can bring us more joy. With money, we can go to the cenema to watch paid movie with pop corns on your hand, you cream and tears with others, see, that's better than watching movie in front of the stupid computer. And with money, you can go travel, and broden your horizen, meet more people, with money, you can go training, get more knowledge and be mor confident. So attitude in life is important, attitude toward money is important. If we balance our life and working (which creates moeny), we and enjoy our life more.

Yes money can make things better, but we shouldn't get caught up in wanting to have money and not enjoying life in general.

I agree with you, if we stopped and looked at how some people live in the really poor countries we would have something to complain about...I think sometimes we needed something to make us see how stupid things were becoming, how the rich and famous were getting paid out of this world fees for things, I guess things won't change much in the future in that respect, but i still think we all needed a wake up call, we should be thankful for what we have and try to be happy ...

I agree, we too often don't realize what we have until we don't have it anymore. Then we again get stuck with thinking about what we don't have now and it becomes a big circle of not trying to be happy with what we have.
