This is Peanut Butter Brickle. Do you ever feel like things get better only for get worse again? Do you ever feel like you’re on a roller coaster of life…trying to fight your way up, but always going back down?
Maybe so. I see and hear a lot of the persons talking. And although I am a dog and I don’t have to worry about that paper money stuff, I do see you might be stressed about it right now. You may even feel lost.
I’m glad that Fruitycake doesn’t know some things yet. Isn’t that such a blessing about youth? I heard someone one time say that youth is wasted on the young.
But when I saw my persons come back from the grocery store place with less of the stuff we get, I wondered why. I wondered why the world is the way it is. And why you persons fight all of the time to get money. Spend money.
I think how persons get stuff. Get rid of stuff. How the persons hurt the earth. And how the earth can’t keep up. The earth is on a roller coaster too. But it didn’t ask for this ride.
I see that bag of baby carrots we eat as treats. Last week, it cost more and we got less. Now I feel like we may get less of the baby carrots. At one time I would have complained about having to eat them. Now I feel fortunate to have them at all.
I thought about it and I realized that not only was I taking stuff for granted when it cost less, but maybe I was being wasteful. Lesson. Learned.
Some persons have a harder time with the money stuff. And I’m sorry. I wish we all could just forget about it.
And if I could, I would give everyone a million dollars today. I can’t even give you a million carrots.
But until then, give yourself thanks for being resourceful. Inventive.
Praise yourself for being hopeful. I’m proud of you. And cherish those baby carrots.
