Good concrete advice to give people something to do. Education is an exceptional way to start Chandlee!

Chandlee,

I really like the idea of 'creating a second act' and 'finding opportunity in unemployment.'

The Lemonade Movie sounds like a video all of us need to watch; the idea of 'swallowing a sour lemon,' makes me wince just a little, but the rewards of the message, of the hope and very real possibilities in reinvention inspire.

Well done. Thanks, Chandlee!

Chandlee- I took your advice and looked at the movie - it made me smile and more importantly, made me feel hopeful. What a wonderful tip! Thanks

The Lemonade video was wonderful - love it! Thank you so much for sharing.

Well, good for them. It's tough to do when you are supporting an elderly parent who has lived in her own home for 60 years, and two teenage sons on your own. The pressure of everyone's life having always depended, and still depending solely on you, not changing, or able to change based on their circumstances, makes the game of "fake it 'til you make" it a tad difficult when it's not just the last 50 years of my life, the remaining X years of that, but also the last 5 years of my mother's life, and my sons' present and future lives that are in the precarious balance.
