For Those Affected By The Government Shutdown

As we now know the government shutdown has last for about a month as of now. (currently going back up temporarily) A lot of people was affected by this as some of them were living paycheck to paycheck. I, myself now how it feels to be on that end as I am on a fixed income. I subscribe to a Youtube channel that deals with keeping your credit on track and in some cases, bringing it back from a downward spiral due to unplanned circumstances. I’ve been through this myself and was able to get it back were it needed to be through careful planning and lifestyle choices I made. The video below is dedicated to those specifically affected by the shutdown and may be of some help. So, please take a look to see if anything the guy talks about can help you in any way.

How To Show Gratitude To TSA Workers — Black America Web

TSA workers are usually among the least-liked government employees. But these days many travelers passing through airports are taking a moment to express their gratitude to the furloughed workers putting in their hours without pay as the partial government shutdown continues.

Your Life is Not Over!

With all the things that are going on in the world today and our personal issues that we are dealing with, it seems as things are getting harder to deal with. I, myself is going through it as I type this. I want to tell you that life is NOT over! Even though is seems that way because of our current situations, it’s not the final chapter. To offer encouragement, I wanted to share this video from Trent Shelton, a motivational speaker that I’ve watching for a while now.

Surviving The Holidays

Every year around this time, I get in a depressive mood. The reason behind it is that the holidays bring stress along with it every year. Most people have family get together on the holidays which can be stressful within it self because of the different personalities of the family members that you can’t get along with and things that come out their mouths when they either consume alcohol or just want to be a trouble maker.

When I was younger, I looked forward to the holidays coming, especially Christmas, because that’s when we get new toys that we don’t get during the rest of the year, unless its your birthday or some other special occasion. Now that I outgrew the Santa Claus period, which makes Christmas a whole different experience.

As a follower of Christ, I look at the holidays, especially Christmas in a whole new way. I try to think about what he’s done for me instead of pondering on the world’s way of celebrating which brings along unneeded stress. When I go about it this way, it helps take the load off of the holiday drama and stress. I learned that its not all about gift giving, instead its the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. So if you find yourself in the dumps during the holidays, please keep this in consideration and possibly work towards a relationship with Jesus to turn your focus on him  instead of the drama.
