Has anyone ever heard the saying " When things get rough the tough get going."

Well now it is up to us to prove it time and time again

The candle burns low and the wick is almost out

I am in a hole and the bottom is near

I can not seem to get out of this place I fear

Do I give up and sit and pout

I can yell and scream but I don't dare

I am afraid what the outcome will be

Let me think let me share

I can not be the only one who has been here

Irrational thinking gets me no where

That seems to be a good decision to make

Let me think this through instead of being upset and blue

There has to be a way I can fix this day

Think, think mind do your thing

I have an idea

Why don't I write down my fears

Money is a problem

Bills have to be paid and funds are low

Can I borrow from friends I know

No No No

They don't have it to give

I am on my own this time

So why didn't I see it coming

There is no time for second guessing

Face the facts

I can make things happen

Why go to a place where I have no hope

Listen to reason logic will come

I will think of a way out

A choice before my eyes I did not see

I am looking for a secret door

To take me away from this

Panic has once again overcome me

Lets turn up the music

Put ourselves in a happier state of mind

Thoughts that I think seem clearer now

I haven't changed my problem just the solution

I will find a way to work it out

I am capable of many things and anything is possible

So here I am thinking

Once again choices seem to appear

Are they the only ones that can make a difference

That is not clear to me at this time

Time is short and I have to go to work

My mind is going to keep thinking

 I must remember all problems can be solved

I little encouragement and reassurance I feel

Yes we all have problems and answers can be found

If not now sometime soon

I am trying hard to imagine any possible positive outcome

Life is full of twists and turns

We have to find a way to bend and adapt

For we are all human

We have such amazing and fascinating capabilities to explore

It takes time to reach within our minds and learn from our mistakes and errors

Dream the Unbelievable and let no one stop your will power and imagination

For this is one gift that is so powerful

We should use it often and all wonders of life will persist

So join me now and fight for a flicker of light

At the end of the candle

Optimism, in the face of uncertainty. You're an inspiration Dream On. Money does tend to be the engine that drives us all, even if it is off of a cliff sometimes! ;)

Yes I wonder that to, Although when you do try to barter it makes purchasing something all the more difficult. What is the true value of ANYTHING though. Who puts all of the prices on things? Hmmm :)

That is so true.Maybe we would appreciate things more and less on the money value they have.It would have to be a fair system maybe it all goes into a pool.The higher the value the more trades one can make.It doesn't mean they would be rich and someone else poor.I will have to think more about it.I am wondering what problems that would cause.I guess money is the only way.Like it or not.

I am far from correct on the things I say on paper.I have fun expressing my ideas.I couldn't do this 20 years ago.I can do it now.I enjoy reading so many other hubs.If I see a mistake or something wrong I laugh and might say I made the same mistake too.Please do me a favor always put yourself on the highest point and let no one ever tell you anything different.Are differences make us special.Life would be pretty boring if we all thought the same way.Did the same thing.I heard that is why we have spell check on the computer to help correct some of are mistakes.I am to darn stubburn and I haven't used it yet.

It is so much better to dream a solution out then to take a pill for failing to own the self.

You are very strong DREAM ON.

You will always find a way simply so, it is in you.

Tkumah I find all my strength in the people who have succeeded in the past and talk about it.I put myself in their shoes and I look for a solution.All those people with courage I follow.It is a much better place than the alternative.Thank you so much and I follow your lead.In times of trouble you are my light.
