Whether one resides in big cities or small rural communities, people all over the country are concerned about a number of challenges we are facing.
In the article by Kimberly Lankford which appeared in the AARP magazine August/September issue, she takes 7 of the major issues such as the economy, closures of neighborhood businesses, big companies going out of business, loss of retirement savings, etc and shares the historical perspectives. Not that we feel happy to learn that 2/3 of small businesses started between 1994 and 2008 shut down within 10 years but again it will offers different point of view.
Remember money, job, large house, cars and other possession do not offer lasting happiness. Unconditional love, compassion to and from your family and friends and even to strangers can result in a real happiness.
