Perspective

Nothing like a trip to the NICU (neonatal infant care unit) to put things give me som perspective. We all get caught up with our every day BS, myself included. I worry about and complain about scrapping ice on my windshield in the morning, daily BS that really means nothing comes to the forefront. I get confused about all of these thoughts racing around my brain and how the hell am I going to make all of these ideas work. I went to visit my niece on new years day and I stood in the midst of premie babies. I stood in silence for a brief second, said a quick prayer for all of them and all of us. I always hear the saying ' don't sweat the small stuff'. Much easier said than done my friends. I know that I need a jolt from time to time, a little reminder to say thank you for all that I have. I am rich beyond words when it comes to family and friends. It is a new year filled with opportunity, nothing but a clean slate in front of us.. Make it happen, be the person you want to be. I will try as well, yet I know I will need some reminders along the way.

You're absolutely right. I am very guilty of sweating the small stuff, thanks for this reminder of the bigger things in life. I hope your niece is doing alright!

I hope everything is ok with your niece.

I do agree, sometimes we need that reminder to not sweat the small stuff. Sometimes it can be hard though.

An effective personal bankruptcy suggestion is always to bring it all in stride. You must point out to yourself that you just aren't by yourself by having to declare bankruptcy. All kinds of other folks have discovered on their own in this situation and plenty of them are probably prepared to offer you some kind of guidance. [url=http://www.ss12w12ws.info]Foli342334o[/url]
