Yesterday afternoon I was on my way home and hands free on the phone with my mama. I was paying attention to the traffic all engaged and driving within speed limits. Everything. Then my phone gave me the low battery warning. I was a mess. Scrambling for a few seconds without taking my hands off the wheel and trying to keep one eye on the road. I just gave up and figured that I’d call her back later. I felt so bad. I try to set a good example so in three or four years when my kids start driving (gasp), they will be safe drivers too. Then I read this and felt a teeny bit better.
I think that it is really great when people can take a negative situation like a possible job loss and turn it into a positive like reinvention. I do. I know that people who are saving money and or making money from this refer to it as a global economy, but the thought of a United States that makes nothing sort of concerns me.
