Hello and thank you for reading ALL of these hardship requests. I was reading many of them myself, and it became quite sad and overwhelming. So many requests, so many hardships, and so very telling about the state of our country. The middle class is being systematically squeezed out and the gap between comfort and suffering is wider than ever. But I digress.
As I said, this is my 2nd request here. I don’t know if the 1st one was even published due to the huge volume of requests, and I couldn’t afford to pay for the front of the line. In other words, it was a bust. But at the same time, it was a great opportunity for me to write most of it out. It was long, messy and miserable. Basically, it was yet another pity party I threw for myself. Boring. And even though all my bullet points were shocking and interesting in a train wreck sort of way, I’ve decided my story will be best told in my book! Not tear stained and weepy as told by the victim, but in the witty, gritty and disturbing manner that Quentin Tarantino will definitely want as his next project! So yes…I’m healing. And I discovered something very interesting. Something I wish I had figured out in my 20’s versus my 50’s! In the midst of my misery that I just could not pull myself out of, I was actually creating my next crappy day, my next agonizing week, and manifesting 4 whole calendars of a horrendous period in my life!
In order to save my own life, I’m making some positive changes. Being grateful for what I have instead of focusing on what I’ve lost. Plodding forward and putting myself in a better place. And I’m working on my relationship with Jesus Christ which brings me enormous comfort. Don’t get me wrong. I struggle hard. It’s not all rainbows and unicorn farts, but I’m smiling again and that is huge!
So let me now get straight to the point. I need $2,000 and I need it quickly. I need to save my 2 storage units and I need my rent (which is actually affordable now) for January 1. I’ve been job hunting, but I am determined to find a good fit and something that makes me happy. I promise you; I cannot afford any more stress or discontent! So yes…. I need to save my possessions so I can go through it all and have a massive sale. I’ve realized that “stuff” weighs me down. But there’s also things I couldn’t bear to part with. And rent is pretty self-explanatory. I also need a car, and dental work, and a bunch of other stuff I detailed in my 1st request. But the good news is I now live where I have access to public transportation! And I’m only missing a few back teeth, so I can still smile and eat (for the most part)! I’m blessed that I can recognize that I can overcome these setbacks. I still have my health and my sense of humor is slowly returning. So I’m quite positive that the amount I’m requesting will help immensely in getting back on my feet. A friend of mine said to ask for more so I could concentrate on the book. But I’m only asking for what I need. God will take care of the rest.
Take Care of Your Loved Ones and God Bless Us All!
