No. This isn't going to be a post on the best accessories and bags for Spring... more of a serious question.
Is anyone else out there doing the treading water dance????
All in all (according to Maslow's hierarchy) I've got my needs met.
I'm breathing, blood is circulating- haha Maslow, you're so practical.
According to his pyramid, the needs on the bottom have to be met to survive,
after that, it's up in the air. bu-dum-dum- no pun was intended
we use this theory in nursing for all of our patients
So when you get to the safety needs, you think about having your home, feeling secure, job security, and maybe even a lil' nest egg like retirement. Ha. Ha. Ha.
Ok, so there's a lil' glitch in our system since the freakin second wrung on the ladder, so to speak, is being threatened. Going through a loan mod, self employment... yada yada... it's quite stressful.
I don't wanna go off too much here, after all, this blog is kinda my happy place.
The good news is this. We've got food to eat, a healthy family, girls who are learning to play piano, I'm in nursing school, and clothes on our backs. Right when I start feeling sorry for myself, I can run through this list (which is really a lot longer) and try to end the pitty party.
Hubby and I have been doing some number crunching today trying to cut some bills down/out.
If there is one thing I am grateful for, during these tight times, it's learning the difference between
needs vs wants
- and crap I have a lot of wants, I'm not gonna lie. You just may catch me drooling on the glass peering into Anthropologie (yeah, I still remember the days when I got a discount there- shoot, that was a pretty fun job). But as far as the needs go, God's got our backs. We are well taken care of and month by month we keep on eek-ing by somehow- some months better than others. Some, well?
But seriously, if you're doing the treading water dance like us, you're not alone.
Let's hold hands and tread together... I love swimming anyways! HA.
This wont last forever- I'm sure of it.
(shoot, I kinda wanna try this! hahah).
