  • I am sure you have heard this a million times but take it one day at a time. You have no idea what's going to happen down the road - next week, next month or even tomorrow. So don't worry about it yet. Do everything you can to change your situation that you are in today. Things change in an instant and it's okay to not like things. But try really hard not to worry about the things you can't change or the things that haven't even happened yet. My husband and I lived in a hotel for 3 months before we had a child. Our apartment lease was up and we didn't want to renew it and there were no nice apartments or homes to rent. We weren't sure what we wanted to do so we rented a storage building for our things and lived in a hotel. It isn't fun, believe me, I know. I can't imagine having to do it with a child or children. Keep your head up and just worry about today.

  • Sometimes things happen that are out of our control. You can look at it as a negative or you can look at it as an adventure, a new beginning to see what life has to offer you. That's how I got through it.

  • Life is not a steady, consistant thing. It's fluid and it changes. Everyone has ups and downs. the downs really suck. The old saying is really true "this too shall pass." I've had so many times in my life where I didn't know how I was going to keep going, but you just do and things change and you find yourself in a different situation. You're not alone, many people are struggling right now. Good luck.

  • Think back on all the times your life has CHANGED for better or worse.
    And then realize that all things are ever-changing. Nothing stays the same. Nothing lasts forever.
    And then you can begin to understand that this is just another change. And it will change again.
    So there's no sense in letting it get to you.
