In the children’s fable, The Sky is Falling, the main character is “Chicken Little” who believes the sky is falling down because an acorn falls on her head. She goes on a quest to get help. The basic moral of the story is: DON’T BE A CHICKEN – have courage.
So that is my lesson for today! Don’t be a chicken. I am very tired and weary, as is most of America, about the negativity in our world that seeks to reinforce that the sky is falling, the end of times is near and we are all doomed. DOOMED. Quite simply…we aren’t.
Yes…we are in a recession. Yes…money is tight. But it’s going to get better. If you can’t believe that, then what’s the point? Homeownership is still glorious and it’s STILL a tax advantage that renters don’t have. It’s also an investment (yes I used the “I” word) in your future. Don’t give up. Don’t wait for the sky to fall. Be bold and courageous.
