Swimming In My Head…

diving in the deep end…


I’m frustrated – really, really frustrated.

As I was driving today, I passed a couple of people who were collecting money for the homeless and for the first time in my brief 35 years on this planet, I faced the fact that I truly don’t have any extra money to give someone else right now.

It made me feel bad because I’m thinking about the fact that in the grand scheme of things, life isn’t so bad for me and there are others far worse off, but I can’t help them right now because I’m in survival mode.

The frustration comes in because I can’t make it logical.  I know the same thing that hopefully every other American knows right now – I’m not helping the economy when I don’t spend.  I know it in theory, but how to fix it…that’s another question.

That’s what’s ‘swimming in my head’ right now – nothing more, nothing less.

  1. This happens to me every now and then too….I think we are meant to see things and reconsider our own lives when we think we have it bad.

  2. goodbadandugly2 – Thanks for that! Actually made me feel better…at least while I’m sipping on this vodka-n-soda…

    Great blog by the way! “Alms for the poor” and “Kids say the funniest things” made me laugh out loud!

  3. Just spend your money on the important things, like vodka and wine. What more do you need?

  4. Hey thanks for the comment! Well, I think there is always something in life to LOL about you just have to find it…. 🙂
    Cheers to your vodka!

  5. deek…you’re a fixer and we fixers can’t stand not being able to help someone out. i agree with goodbadandugly2 that this puts things in perspective for us and reminds us to see alittle deeper from time to time…

  6. JoshB – You’re probably right…but can’t afford a new liver, so don’t want to overdue it…lol.
