Is that really what you wanted to ask?
You have asked yourself a question and allowed yourself a choice of two answers, but you forgot you have a third choice
If you are down and out, should you,
A. stay upful and positive
B. be humble and wait
C. All of the above
You also need to realize that this is not a question that faces only those who are "down and out", its a question that everyone, no matter what position in life, must face.....and the answer is the same, no matter what position in life, no matter the circumstances
