I am a bit more hopeful, coming up to 2014. I don't know if that is wishful thinking or not. "Hopeful for what?" I am not clear of.
Since Christmas has come and gone, I am reading things that are alarming and can be quite scary. Here are three of them:
Unemployment benefits end for 1.3 million jobless -
World Braces for Retirement Crisis
US Stock Market Bubble - Ready to burst
It just seems, we are never going to get back all that we have lost since 2007/2008. As if this is now our "new normal". This vocabulary of downsizing, debt-reducing, living cheaply etc seems to be in the forefront of the blogs. No longer do we see, signs of real HOPE, we can touch.
I guess I am hopeful, that maybe we have a year off - from anything financially drastic to take place. And hopefully we have used all the skills to embrace this new way of life in a congenial way - no longer struggling with it. I suspect, there will be a onslaught of even more people, looking to survive as they have hit their unemployment bottom. Sad reality.
What are you hopeful for this coming year?
