Trying to be creative while you are under the pressure of survival is a difficult thing at best. Trying to maintain a positive outlook, attitude, disposition, and personality in general while trying to survive is a difficult thing at best. Wanting to grow and enrich your life and meditate and create intentions and more importantly wishes and desires is a task not easily obtained. The answer is trying to focus on the gratitude for what little we may have at the time. Your daily job is to find food, shelter, and some daily money, and not a time to create a future. Here is what I have learned from people in struggle of all kinds. You must have a belief system when you can�??t see tomorrow. Regardless of what your beliefs given to you as a child, it�??s now that you need a deep belief in a power and intelligence greater than yourself. People change their terminal illnesses to becoming disease free through a change in their beliefs. Are you willing to believe in the supernatural.
