I read an article about a 44 year old gentleman named Marc Heffner. He has been unemployed since October, 2008 and has since ran out his unemployment benefits. After loosing his job as a six figure sales man, he had no choice but to sell his house for less than market value, his marriage of 20 years fell apart, and he is now living with his mother. As if he doesn't have enough to worry about, he is also diabetic and pays $430.00 a month for the insurance he must have. His daughter's Car broke down and he will dig in to his 401k plan to to pay for her transmission to get fixed. Here is a man that has owned his own business, made six figures as a salesman and when you ask him if he is okay, he replies "Doesn't do any good to keep grinding on it. "God will get me a job when he gets me a job." He keeps a positive attitude and still supports his kids with their needs.
I posted this article to let you know that during these trying times, all you can do is be strong! I know it seems like one bad thing happens, then here comes another one, and another one. Being the kind of person to let these things brake you, will be your down fall. Use this time to tap into your inner warrior. Hope this helps and God Bless.
