It seems that we are always in a depression. Can you remember the last time you talked to someone and they told you we are in the best time and there is no depression? Even in the heydays of housing market we were in a depression.
Reality is everything is perfect the way it is. You can listen to everyone and wait for the tomorrow that never comes or you can bend the reality to your needs and achieve whatever it is you want.
Reality is the power is in your control, its what you choose to do with it. But rarely does anyone really act on those and its sad – that is depressing.
To have done something and failed is better than to have done nothing at all – if anything at least your mind will be at ease that you tried and gained.
