I’ve been thinking about starting a blog for a long time, but have been putting it off. I have a hard time imagining that anyone would be interested in what I have to say, so I finally decided to do it for me, and if anyone else reads it, that’s fine. I’ve found more and more that I’ve been writing blog posts in my head, so I might as well write them down and then I don’t have to keep track anymore.
On the el this morning, I was thinking about the financial crisis. Actually, I was thinking about how dire the financial crisis seems, but how personally unaffected I am by it, so far at least. Despite the negative news…life just seems to go on as normal. I get up, pour cereal for the kids, take a shower, get dressed, go to work, etc. It’s all just very normal. I realize that a lot of people are very affected by it, so I’m counting my blessings. As much as I can, I focus on the here and now. I’m healthy today, my kids are healthy today, we can pay the bills today. Tomorrow will sort itself out.
