Where Am I Going?

I am reaching 40 soon and feel that I have not accomplished the things I wanted to in life. I am not nearly close to where I want to be. This is my 2nd marraige and I have no children yet (planning to), but many times I feel disillusioned with life and where I am, what I have accomplished thus far. We are a newly married couple , we cannot afford to buy our own home due to the strickt credit laws at banks, and most of the people my age have kids that are in their teens already. I feel like I am 'behind' in life so to speak. This could probably be because of bad choices and unforseen circumstances that led to this. Then again, what is normal these days anyway? We are accustomed to be boxed in...at a certain time you should have this, be married, have kids and so forth, and the moment you dont fit into the status quo you feel left outside alone. With the current economical issue facing millions, this makes me feel dispair and anxiety as well. I know I have a lot to be thankful for, but I cannot seem to shake the worries about what lies ahead.

What lied ahead is this: another day to be thankful that you made it through the day! You have someone who loves you and would do anything for you, you have a home, food on the table, a job and look in the paper and you will see that people are selling everything they own, even the kids are selling their favorite toys!!! I have not worked in over 2 years (my husband is working thanks God) so I make stuffed animals and do psychic reading to earn money. <br />

Try to think of a way to bring in more money to the home, or get involved in a community garden and have the wife take up canning. I have done some canning in my life (jelly, tomatoes mostly) but it does a save money in the long run. It would get out outside and out of the dumps. Be thankful for the day that it is for it is given to you-that was from my spirit guides. I am not strange just different, Nan
