is this it?
Hi

I am feeling really down in the dumps, a kind of feeling like " is this it"  I get up everyday momday to friday work from 8-5 go home cook clen spend time with my hubby and the kids. We struggle every month end to pay bills, sometimes we have extra left for a night a a resturant sometimes not. I am sitting at work today thinking is this as good as it gets its been years and years of the same thing nothing exciting no family holidays to look forward to nothing to be excited about nothing... We are stuck in a rut financially and we dont spend money on unimportant things like shopping or buying things we dont need....

Of course Reality Check is right. And I've treated some awfully miserable millionaires. Happiness is about how you choose to feel about what you have, and is never about what you don't have, nor brought by getting any of the items on one's wish list.
Why not pick some relatively inexpensive extra treats and save up for them, even if its once every several months ?
