Money Talks...

can all these be real?
i see debits all over
checkbook's sinking!

i need to balance
all my spending must at least
equal my income!

it's now mid of month
payment from my work come
must try to save more!

but they say a friend
in need is a friend indeed...
so when my friend called

i offered my hand
and give whatever i can
i've got only much!

i told her to get
a cash advance to take care
her issues at hand!

we're in worst of times--
no time for consequences,
no time for caution

let us just get by
one day at a time and
we will all be fine!

I always feel bad everytime I see friends struggle financially, it makes me ask so many questions. On the lighter note, I am just glad I am able to help them in little ways I can. I feel sorry hearing stories about people losing their jobs, but I'd love to look at it as an opportunity for them to get better ones!

It is in times like this we need to pull ourselves together not as an individual nation but as a citizen of the world. People should stop panicking and stop pulling out investments! Stocks are going down the drain because our panic and want to have more and fear of having less gets the better of us! So that last week, I decided to put more money on long term investments...I hope that helps too in any ways.

Let me share to you the following inspiring lines --

When you get into a tight place
and everything goes against you,
until it seems as though
you could not hang on a minute longer,
never give up then,
for that is just the place
and time that the tide will turn.”
-Harriet Beecher Stowe

Yep, times are tough. Most cash advances I've seen are pretty scary, though, especially in times like these, but you are right that now is the time to be buying into the market if you can. Hopefully this mess will be over sooner rather than later and we all will have learned something of value.

Money does indeed talk. When you see freinds in financial trouble refering them to a reputable payday lender to get a Cash Advance can be a good thing.

You are such a sweetheart and a great friend. Giving what you can, even when you had little to give.

Times are tough these days. Thank you for those words of encouragement. We hope that as 1 door closes, another one opens.

I totally agree with you! We must all come together in times like these and work as united citizens.

Have a great weekend!

You are absolutely right. As a matter of fact, I was soon going to blog on this same exact thing.

Well, not same exact, but I was going to talk about how people need to change their tune.

Having lost my job earlier this year, I am a firm believer in the phrase "when one door closes, another opens" I'm in a job now that is so much better that were I was.

Mariposa said...

Maggie, you're right, that is why choosing a bank or a creditor is like choosing a partner! LOL

Chris, I agree with you!

Chiu, love your site, I'm sure to be back there!

Momisodes, yes,definitely something better is on it's way! ;)

Btw, if you happen to be back here...I can't acess your site since yesterday!

Broscacera, I think it is something that affects us all, so I made this post.

Mariposa said...

Melanie, yeah, time to unite!

Samurai, I look forward to your post, always love your perspective!

Bob, reading this from you makes me smile and hopeful!

Nice haiku! I think we are all trying to be more careful with our money! I have actually started clipping coupons, if you can believe it!

It is terribly tough to watch a friend in need, and helping them is great so long as you are not adding to your burden by doing so.
