I love the changes of the seasons and always feel like the current one is my favorite. It’s probably because I spend so much time in the moment. I have learned to appreciate what is going on around me and stop to take notice of specifics like the aroma of the early morning breeze, the clouds in the sky or the sounds of children laughing. These are the simple things in life that make life more enjoyable.

I am pleased that we have the choice to stop and enjoy what is going on around us and donut have to be forced into being caught up in the economic situations every moment of the day.

What have you done to prepare for the change in economy? Have you cut back on the extras and put money away to cover emergencies? Do you look for the means to generate additional money for your family?

There are many resources that you can avail yourself from. What do you have around your house that you could sell on eBay? Start scouting garage sales, flea markets or second hand stores for treasures.

You might even want to look at a multi level marketing business. Just be careful so you understand their rules going in. It helps to believe in the product or service and if the service is something that everyone can benefit from, you’ll have a more willing participating audience. Look for things like utilities companies or discount buying services.

Be prepared! Don’t let the economy affect you and your family.
