What is stopping you to get where you want to get?
Recently, I was invited to do a talk about what I think of the situation of crisis in Europe. I had no qualification apart from my own views.
I realise that here in France as in England, or should I say United Kingdom ( we still are!) many expect the government to MAKE MIRACLES but few believe in it.
People blame government for everything which it is sad…what kind or people are we if we vote for politicians but don’t believe in them but go with the flow… slugging them off.
I just can’t believe that people don’t seem to understand something so simple straight forward:
There is no money,rien, nient, nada! We all have to do what we can and God help us ALL!
This is not the first time this happen in Europe …have we all forgotten?
My ancestors had to leave “Europa” in the past to go to Brazil because they could no longer afford to live in Europe. They did not WANT TO LEAVE THEIR COUNTRY,THEIR HOME, their people, but they had too…and they did in order to survive. To do better.
And they made it!
Like my family there were too many others that left Europe to USA, Canada and other far way lands.
My grandfather once said:
“Ignorance is rely on others to look after yourself such government and institutions”
“Socialism can not be sustained when there is no money” said many socialists in the world.
Captalism is not sustained either! There are other ways.
STEVE JOB said something like:
“Your time is limited, so stop wasting living other people’s life”
We have to find our own way without expecting from others what we are not prepared to do for ourselves!
Many of us can not afford to retire yet. In order to be able to live the life we want we have to work and save for our old age. That is what our parents did and all our ancestors before them. THEY PAID THEIR WAY. WE PAY OUR WAY…and C’EST LA VIE MON AMI!
Now you can work and have fun….
…we brazilians are good at that. I find that many people here in South France found a way around work and pleasure too. We know people in UK that found a good balance too. In France and Spain they take the siesta very serious…no apologies at all!
You can have your cake and eat it! But there is always a price to pay.
My husband and I could live anywhere in the world but we like Europe. We love England and now France. WE ARE PREPARED TO PAY THE PRICE.
