The Big Picture

Chris
I have to admit, I've been feeling pretty sorry for myself. I've been so wrapped up in worry that I've been missing the big picture. All I can think is, "What are we going to do until Mike's disability payments kick in? What if they don't kick in?" I realize they are justified worries, but they are things out of my control so is it really worth making myself physically ill over? We have done everything we can to cut back on our monthly spending and I think we've done a good job.

I've realized this is all part of the small picture though. In the big picture we have a roof over our head, food on the table and I have a wonderful job that pays well and allows me to work with a great group of people. We planned for an emergency that we had hoped wouldn't happen, but it did and we had a plan. I should be proud of all that and not feeling sorry for myself. I can be angry, I can fight for what we need and deserve, but I don't have to wallow in some form of self pity.
