Good Day Gone Bad

by Pennie on January 9, 2014

You know when things are going well and suddenly you get bad news or something bad happens and you get that sinking feeling in your stomach?  Well that’s how I feel right now.  

I was watching some TV with my daughter, trying to catch up on a show we watch, when the mail comes.  I was expecting something positive (which I didn’t get), but instead received something super negative financially and way out of left field.  I feel absolutely deflated.

This is something completely outside of my control.  Maybe it’s the fact that it is out of my control that is so upsetting.  There is no recourse I can take, which is very frustrating.  And it’s frustrating that it will probably negatively impact other aspects of my life.

Then I start thinking about the bad karma I seem to have hovering around me.  Which depresses me no end.

I’m an intelligent, educated woman and yet I still make decisions that manage to negatively affect me in the long term.  I’m going to be 60 years old at the end of this month and I’ve basically been working since I was 10 years old (baby sitting).  I had thought I would be in a better financial position at this point in life and instead things are getting worse.

Pretty soon you will find me flipping burgers and asking “Do you want fries with that?”  So frustrating!

Sorry about the rant today but my head is not in a good place.  Hope your day is much better!

I don’t know you but I share your exact age (off by a month) and I know the feeling of being blindsided by something like this. I am glad you have the outlet of writing this blog to vent with others who feel they do know you. I have offered up a little prayer for you this morning. I am sure others will write with their two cents’ worth, but here goes from me: I recommend that you (if possible) speak to a real human being also–a good friend, your daughter, your pastor, your parent or a counselor (financial or emotional) and start the process of moving that aura of dark “karma” away from you. Do something kind/good for someone else to shift the depressing thoughts away from you. Be aggressive in tackling the problems that the financial news brought you and move forward. It will be beyond tough, but please be reassured to know that many of us care about you. And BTW, perhaps that “something good” that you were expecting in the mail will come in today’s mail!

Wondering how you are doing. . . have thought of you several times since reading your blog post last Friday morning.

Thanks for checking back, Daphne. I’m doing better, but still upset over the situation. Hopefully things will work out over time.
