  • You are right on: "fewer than what we expected" It is the expectations that do us in, our feeling of somehow being entitled to more. All too often we chose to mope and grumble about it, instead of working to improve our situation. I was on vacation once in southern France (I live in Europe) and saw a mountainside like the one below. All the way up and down the mountains, and going on for miles and miles in both directions those terasses had been build to keep the rain from just running off and carry away the topsoil. Imagine the years and years of work needed to build them, generation after generation of farmers collecting and setting all those stones. And it worked. Today that mountainside is fertile farmland, fine for growing olive trees, vegetables and grain. All because those ancient poor farmers never gave up, but managed to persist in doing something lasting. regards JakobA
