is it real? was it ever real? will it be in the future? I'm talking about the 'perfect' job, house, car, family, life etc...
I know i'm not living it. i know my parents aren't, they try and and they try but it just never happens. i keep saying to myself "if we could just get out of debt" but i know that's almost impossible, my parents have been saying it for my whole life... I know it has something to do with where we live, and that we were stupid and had kids before finishing college and getting a good paying job, but does that mean we don't deserve to ever be happy and "financially stable"? am i just being unrealistic in hoping that SOMEDAY (preferably before my kids are in college) we'll own our own house and not be on Public Assistance (FS&medicaid) and be able to buy our kids 'extras' once inawhile without worrying about it later?
sigh... just depressed with life today i guess :(

is it real? Yes
"if we could just get out of debt" but i know that's almost impossible. Not impossible, just hard. You have to live below your means and sacrifice to win :)
does that mean we don't deserve to ever be happy and "financially stable"? No. But I do think you might have to work harder for it.
am i just being unrealistic Nope. You'll never get anywhere if you're satisfied with where you are.

"If you always do what you've always done then you'll always get what you've always got"
LOVE this quote. You have to make a change in your situation yourself. I don't mean that in a mean way either. I've been atthe point where we were sinking and struggling to stay above water. I decided to make a change though so that I could give my 2 girls things they deserve and be able to pay the bills on time and all in the same month. I can't tell you what a blessing it has been to be able to do these things!! I started working at home last year and even in just a year it has made such a huge difference :).
Keep your head up and decide what you want, how bad you want it and what you're willing to do to get it.
