Investing for good

Lately in this time of such much economic turmoil I cannot help but think and feel for all the people that are having a tough time with job layouts and debts, among other situations.

But when we are face to face with this hard times, it's time to remember that there's always something that need our attention. It's open 24/7, you always have an open account (no matter if your credit is not good) and you might even have a direct line of credit, sometimes under your own terms!

Just remember when you want you take out a loan, the interest rate will only go up if you don't invest again, but the more you invest the best interest rate you will get and your investments will pay you back for years to come... and that place is no other than our FAMILY and FRIENDS!

So, what I mean is that in times of need is very important (almost to the point of vital) to support and lend a hand to our loved ones, whether they need our help now of later, maybe we don't have the economic stability to help them out, but I am sure there are many other ways to help somebody, by lifting their spirit or just saying a little prayer for them... for whatever we do, it would come back to us full circle.

Investing in the people we love and care for is definitely the best investment nowadays, for their happiness and ours, then if we add our neighbors and even the stranger walking next to us, maybe one day we could change somebodies life with a random act of kindness.

So in times like these, I like to share this beautiful prayer

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love,
Where there is injury, pardon
Where there is doubt, faith,
Where there is despair, hope,
Where there is darkness, light,
Where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much
seek to be consoled as to console,
not so much to be understood as to understand,
not so much to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
it is in dying that we awake to eternal life.

Our family and friends should always be our most important investments, their happiness reflects on our happiness and having them by our sides makes life much more enjoyable and priceless, so no matter what economic situation we are one, we are definitely reach if we always invest in our loved ones!

So today, let's pray that we are all instruments to make the best out of life, help all beings and little by little make this a better world!

Have a wonderful day!!!
