My Grandma Calls it the "Tewsley Luck"

10 Pieces of Advice and Facts

  1. Our family has been experiencing an unluckily long chain of what my grandma calls the "Tewsley Luck." Its really hard but there are many ways to deal with it.
  2. I feel really sorry for my family sometimes because of "The Tewsley Luck." but we aren't the only ones.
  3. When people get upset because they didn't get what they wanted for Christmas, they should think about the people who don't even have a Christmas tree to put the presents (that don't exist) under.
  4. People should know it's not just them.
  5. Sometimes when you have such bad luck, you have to laugh. Make a joke about it. Try to have a little fun.
  6. You need to think that because of the economy jobs are hard to get. Don't blame it on yourself. You did nothing. It's the economy that could be hurting your family.
  7. You need to just let it go. When Borders closed it was really hard on me and my family. It took me about a week to realize it was really over. Done for. I needed to let it go.
  8. When life feels like you're being pelted with dodge balls you need to back out and walk away. If you can't all you need to do it try to make it better. Say, "stop!" Close your eyes and think. Do what you have to do.
  9. Maybe life doesn't always go the way you planned - either good or bad. You can work through it.
  10. Take life to the cleaners. If you can put in the washing machine, do it. Start all new.
