Keep your eye on the bigger picture. These little things are simply part of daily life. They’re not the mountains you’re fearing them to be. You’re not going back to the beginning, and you don’t have to worry about drowning in the sea of despair. Those days are over. But you’re not ready to live a champagne life either. So manage your resources appropriately and things will be fine.
You’re not going backwards or repeating the struggles you’ve already overcome. What has crossed your path this week is nothing more the daily responsibilities of life. Don’t make them out to be more than they are. You merely have to take control of your world and manage the maintenance of living.
Security and sustainability require constant oversight. You can’t ignore the routine or expect someone else to take care of it for you. Life means being responsible for your self and what needs to be addressed and taken care of to life in this world.
This isn’t a time to feel like you’re being overwhelmed. It’s not a time to grovel and cry why me! It’s not just you. Everyone has bills to pay, everyone has things they must take care of to survive. Unlike everyone else, you’ve gotten through some pretty rough times and you’ve survived. You endured hardship, you fought through stress and strife and you survived. You are stronger for it and you know what needs to be done.
