Down in the dumps with life, I know they say when life hands you lemons make lemonade. How do you do that, how can you keep an up beat smile on your face when financially you are spiraling out of control. I can't find work, my husband doesn't make enough to cover all the bills, so I have had to juggle them and this week they all caught up to me. How do you handle what life throws at you. What are the ways that you cope with life and money trouble.

I usually try to fight until the end. I mean, I give up when I see that I can't change the situation. Sometimes it's very hard to push on when the situation seems hopeless. In such cases, I try to cheer myself up. Sometimes I think about other people, who are living in conditions much worse than mine and it gives me strength to carry on, knowing that these other people had not given up, although their situation is worse than mine.

Everything happen to our life has its purpose. We never know until it comes. That's the truth of life, we must accept that. Sometimes we are in the top of our success, and others are in down, or vice versa, but who knows God might have a better plan to us that's why He's testing us. Faith is the keys for that, we must keep believing, even almost thing are going worst to us, because God's knows we can overcome that one. Like they said, in every end of the storm, there will be a sunshine come.

Remember that the only time that exists is now and that no event or situation defines you. Problems can only exist in the mind in relation to the past or future. The now can never cause anxiety, worry, fear, stress, anger. Don't analyze anything too much. Just live. Focus on living and being happy and you will naturally draw positive energy to you. Namaste.
