Never Mind The Recession, Seasons Greetings Vancouver

With all the depressing news talking about a recession, I want to ask you. Do you know anyone who has been laid off because of the recession? I don’t know anyone, and 99% of the people I know are in trades such as carpentry and plumbing.  Nothing goes up forever, everyone seemed to think that the economy would get better and better. When in history has the economy ever done that? When have houses gone up for 10 years straight? These people need to get their heads out of their *sses seriously.  Nothing goes up forever, or down forever. The media has a nasty habit of making things seems much worse than they are, and much better than they are. They need to catch your attention, so they sensationalize everything.

  1. Houses prices coming down? So what, weren’t they getting just a wee bit out of the price range of most folks?
  2. Economy slowing down? Are you still working, me too.

I usually like to look at the glass half full, not half empty.  I think of this as a time of opportunity, for me personally.

  1. more affordable real estate, which cash flows better.
  2. cheaper gas prices, saves me money.
  3. cheaper priced Christmas gifts because of all the sales because of the “recession”.

Keep smiling the sky isn’t falling, just the bullsh*t from the media is. Yeah the economy is slowing down, but guess what it will be going back up again, and then back down and back up after that. This is just another cycle, keep living your life.

What do you think, leave a comment.

    I’m in WA state, and I for one know MANY people who got laid off this year and my husband got laid off a year ago. He is working now. I would’ve been laid off too if I hadn’t left the job to pursue my own business as my company did some major downsizing. I guess I just know to many people really struggling right now. Yes, the economy goes in cycles and I understand that but, I have never been hit so hard or know so many struggling. Just my two cents.

    Looks like you had a pretty sunrise when you took your photgraph.

    Thanks for commenting. We’re in Canada and we seems to be a few years later with everything including the recession. I don’t know anyone myself like I said in my post, that could change who knows. Sorry to hear that you’re family are having tough times. Today, it snowed another 3 inches soo far… Good Luck Monica & Merry Christmas.
