    Well I am not too far from being poor right now as is, so I would say I would just do the same as I always do. Get up, go to work and pay all the bills I can and than do my online work as I try to get the extra money to cover the bills.

      Well Aaron, you have a good attitude.  I'm sure you're the kind of guy people like to have around.
      Thanks,
      Lisa

    Scream out loud and start asking people around me what day, what year I am right now. Who  back knows that I am in a time machine going back time

    I would hustle to find more work before the wells run dry.

    I would TOTALLY GIVE UP as life wouldn't be worth living anymore.  That would be a fate worse than hell. ALL WOULD BE LOST.

    I would do the same thing that I'm doing now, Bust my butt every day and get back to where I am.

    I would go back to sleep since my life doesn't revolve around the almighty dollar. The phrase "Money doesn't buy happiness" is true, but not entirely. Would a Million bucks make me happy? Uhh, ya! BUT.... For the right reasons. There are a few rich people that are miserable, but for the most part, I think money DOES help a great deal with happiness. For me, I make the best with what I got. If I had a million bucks, even better, but if not, I'll still be happy. If your life doesn't revolve around money then you will be happy. Life shouldn't be about how much "Stuff" you have, or "keeping up with the Jonses" I don't even know who the "Jonses" are! lol

    If I woke up and suddenly become poor then I make myself stand up and find a way to get out of being poor. I don't mind being poor but I would like to make my life a little better than when I was young when I don't even have a pair of shoes to wear. Don't get me wrong, I come from a poor family so I am used to being poor but I did everything like studied hard to educate myself, made myself learn new things and worked really hard to be where I am today. I am not rich but I have enough to pay my food, shelter and bills. We were homeless before but we worked hard and we have a lovely place we call our own. I have a job to go to every morning except on my days off and am quite happy. If ever I wake up and become poor again, I will work hard again to be able to get what I need in life. I am so used to being poor, it does not bother me at all.

      Well put. My comment above, I didn't disclose the fact that I, too, work a full time job. It's not easy, but we all need to do what we can. Great reply Linda! People could learn from your experience
