Better off today than four years ago?
This is the current "trending" political question.
Here's my answer: absolutely yes.
Here's why: I came to the realization that I control my life and my status. I, through hard, dedicated, smart work, set myself up for success. And while government does play a role in setting boundaries in an attempt to create a level playing field for all of us citizens, I'm still ultimately responsible for setting my limits.
There are millions of choices we're faced with but, the decisions are ultimately up to us. Don't like something? Change it. Like something? Do more of it. It's that simple. No, really. It is.
Let's stop blaming politicians and government for the status of our lives.
