Who Moved My Money?

August 11th, 2011 by judytalks

Have you planted your vegetable garden yet? Cancelled everything you don’t absolutely need? How are you coping with this roller coaster economy?

The subjects I write about are grief, loss, and recovery, but my focus is usually loss of a loved one, not financial disaster. Our money resources represent hard work, diligence in spending/saving, and security for the future. How dare someone take that away?

I realize this situation didn’t happen overnight. Nevertheless, it leaves me fearful, angry, and shaking my head.

What’s the best way to mourn the loss of a secure future? All loss has to be acknowledged, thought out in terms of exactly what is gone, and managed day by day as healing takes place. Putting things in place to alleviate fear is sensible and workable. Putting things in perspective is also good for a balanced view.

Most of us, myself included, have had money worries before and we’ll have them again. Coping with any loss takes action, courage, and, at best, support from others. Now’s the time to reach out to others and see who’s reaching out to you. I plan to re-establish a secure financial future for myself. I may even grow vegetables.

Happy digging,
