So before I hung up the phone with my friend, “I’ve decided to celebrate life.” That was inspiring for me, and certainly something I could relate to. And then it occurred to me that this affirmation was her salt and pepper. She needed to focus on the positive to better digest all the negativity going on around her. I appreciated those words from my friend, and that’s exactly what I plan to do, while I work on trying to figure out exactly what my salt and pepper is.
So: Are you in an intimate relationship? Has it been adversely affected by the economic downturn? If you’re not in a relationship, how are things with friends and family? Are you helping to support a friend or family member who has fallen on hard times? Are you that person being supported? Do you think the relationship will survive? Why or why not? How are you celebrating life despite the hard times?
