Foreclosure Process and worrying about financial problems in general is a normal reaction and a concern shared by millions of other people just like you. Homeowners who never worried about job loss or the prospect of losing their homes are now amongst the three million current foreclosure cases with many more families behind in payments and soon to be in foreclosure as well.
Regardless of the problem and no matter how dark things look, never forget to enjoy life. We all have different religious and spiritual beliefs but what they all have in common is the recognition that life is short and precious and it’s up to you to make the most of your life in the brief time we’re privileged to be alive.
What that means is to find the things that matter most to you and focus on them rather than your problems, at least for awhile! Never forget to make the people closest to you happy and tell them how much they mean to you, make sure to spend quality time with your family and never neglect your cats and dogs and the remarkably unconditional love they provide. Most importantly, make sure to do the things that make you feel good whatever are. Crank up your favorite music, reread your favorite book or find a new one, call a friend you haven’t spoken to for awhile or dust off your baseball glove or tennis racquet and remember what it feels like to be a kid again. Anything that makes you happy, just don’t hurt anybody! And don’t just nod your head in agreement, do something about it!
If you don’t have anything that sparks your passions, find something that does. It’s never too late to learn new computer skills or sign up for an online class, take up dancing, jogging or try different activities like painting or yoga to meet new people who like to do the same things.
For others you have plenty of interests but not enough time, money or motivation. Make time and choose the things that are realistic and easy to get started and pull out your fishing rod, shine your bowling ball, shoot pool, head to the local beach or mountains or any one of the thousands of options you have to make each day unique and interesting. We all have a certain number of days known only to God, but there’s always one less than the day before so make each day count for you and the people you care about and don’t let foreclosure stress control your life.
