Do It Yourself!

Filed Under Uncategorized | 1 Comment

Yes, the economy is a mess, and not close to the recovery everyone wants to see.

Yes, the poliitical world is filled with unrest, deception, and stupidity.

Yes, people are being laid off, losing their health insurance, losing their homes, battling cancer, dealing with debt, depression, and death.

And, yet.

You must go on.

You must do your part.

No one is going to fix your life for you.

No one person can do everything, but it is important to do what you can do.

And what you can do is stop whining, get up off the couch, and DO one thing.  One thing.

Make a phone call. Write a letter. Register with a temp agency. Register to vote. Register for a time or money management class (and then actually go to it).

Do your laundry, so you at least have clean clothes when you leave the house.

Check the next item on your to do list, and do it – no matter what it is – clean the kitchen, bathe the dog, discover a cure for AIDS.

Don’t have a to do list? Make one.

I am done with people who have plenty of time to bemoan their circumstances in numerous online groups, and ask for help left and right (and receive plenty of great suggestions and leads), and yet never have the time to try any of the suggestions offered, or even to thank the people who gave them.

Whether in the virtual online world, or sitting around with our friends in the physical world, it’s far too easy to spend time moaning about fate and whining about how unfair the world is, and how everything is so awful, there’s no point, so you might as well eat more ice cream and take another FaceBook quiz, because, really, what can you do?

You can do any number of things.

Don’t know what to do?  Pick a card, let it suggest an action, and then do it.

Talking about it is not doing it.  Planning to do it is not doing it.

You must actually make the effort and do it.

So do something already!
