Let's face it...with the overwhelming debt and people we owe, it's sometime difficult to be thankful for all that we have. We oftentimes get upset at our creditor or annoyed that we have outstanding loans, a vehicle to pay for, a house to maintain, etc., etc., etc. In all the complaining, we oftentimes forget that although we have debt and it's annoying and painful to manage, we have been blessed to have what we have due to the loans, use of vehicle, roof over our heads, etc., etc., etc.
Is it difficult to pay off debt? Of course. Do we get frustrated that we don't have any debt solutions or not sure how to eliminate credit card debt? Do we give up sometimes because we are horrible at financial management and no matter how many personal financial tips we get, we still feel like there is no end to the frustration of debt?
It helps to take a step back and just be thankful. I mean, were we not able to go to school because a bank was willing to lend us money? Are we not able to drive our kids around, get to work, and take trips with the family with the vehicle that we have that huge loan on? Do we not have a place to live that has a roof, protects us from the storms and natural elements, and keeps our children warm? Take a step back and just be thankful. Be grateful for what you have, even if there may be a debt tied to it.
Remember that just because you have debt and feel like there is no way out of it, rest assured there are many resources available to help you get out of debt. You don't have to remain hopeless and you can use those resources to help you with personal financial management and the ability to pay off debt. Remember that you will then become happier and more thankful when you finally find a solution to help you pay down your debt so the sooner you are thankful, the sooner you'll be happy, and the sooner you'll find a solution to become debt free!
