    In these hard times, do you have something positive to share?

    I know there is allot of people struggling, with the economy the way it is.  I thought it would be nice to hear some positive things that have happened!  Things that might, help give encouragement and hope to others:)

    Gold, silver and platinum look to be in an uptrend that will likely continue.

    Even in the depression of the 1930s, a lot of people made out (and not just the politicians and bankers).  Don't follow the crowd or believe or do what your so-called "leaders" and corporate TV and newspapers tell you.  Make up your mind to stop being a sheep, educate yourself, and extract yourself from the flock, and you will have a better chance. … the-answer … overeignty

    I am happy to have a career as a teacher. I will never get rich, but there is some job security as the schools will never be closed.

    yes if a person can, ans dabeaner said, invest in gold, silver or platinum.  We can learn allot from the depression!  Using common sense is a big plus at any time.

    That no matter how bad things get, your soul will survive, because it is destined for the life to come.
    So, make sure "It is well with your soul."

    Practically, we have had to cut down on the types of food we buy and clothes we wear. But we have enough.
    We are learning to make wiser decisions, planning ahead better, taking fewer trips to town, etc.

    It is good for our whole family to try to make ends meet rather than spend, spend, spend, without too much thought.

    Things never remain the same. The one thing that remains the same without a doubt is change. So as other wise people have said in the past, 'This, too, will pass.I have a bit of positive tips in my hub '
