I’m reading “Don’t sweat the small stuff” and it explains how we should see the best in people and if they are not being positive it’s because they are dealing with something in their own life. I work with people most days and have lots of retail experience. I see people’s projecting all kinds of different moods and I remind myself that there are life experiences behind that.
I’m pretty content in my own life. Of course, I worry about finances and I don’t have anyone (but myself) to fall back on so I pinch pennies almost obsessively.
There is someone I worry about and wish I could do more for: My Family.
Specifically, My Mother, who has provided me with so much knowledge, empowerment and life.
I just found out she’s going to be evicted from the trailer she’s been living in, which belonged to her husband’s family. My Mom lost her husband last year to Cancer. She relies on food gift cards (which have been disappearing, probably stolen, before ever arriving in her mailbox) from a family service agency and can not work due to a degenerative spine disease.
I feel so powerless.
Do I crowdfund?
Do I start some kind of fundraiser?
Do I sell some art?
I wish I could win the lottery. I just want to make it all better.
