The notion, "you can have it all" speaks to a place within us. It touches that part of us that desperately wants our dreams fulfilled. We want to "have it all" and it might be approximately so if this exotic currency so many of us hold ultimately exchanges at the dream rate so often spoken as a certainty.
Well, the truth is that we canNOT "have it all" (at least for the vast majority of us) unless and until our currency becomes as magic as it has been talked about for so long. There are a few in dinarland who blog post specialize in "encouragement". The primary device used in this "encouragement" is to write of the dreamed for currency exchanges as though they are a present (or recently past) meaning and condition. A few moments thought allows a view on how hollow that style of encouragement (no matter how common) turns out to be.
Consider and apply this "encouragement" logic. We are about as responsible for our currencies wildly appreciating in value as we are responsible for a car dangerously cutting us off or a fender bender on a busy LA freeway during rush hour. So we can see it makes no sense to say of that other driver's dangerous driving, "it's sure to happen" or "you've already had an accident" unless and until the dangerous maneuver happens. Of course accidents, just as much as wonderful events in life, don't happen until they happen. So, just like you can't "have it all" until you exchange, you're not a victim of other bad drivers until a collision.
"Staying grounded" does not mean agreeing with gurus' announcements of the RV - we all know how well they've done. Being and staying "grounded", according to Merriam-Webster, means "mentally and emotionally stable; admirably sensible, realistic, and unpretentious." This is not negative or defeatist; it's simply honest. There is a contingent in dinarland, I'm sure, that wants to receive any manner of intoxicatingly exciting words of "encouragement" spoken as though a present reality. But, this is neither stable, sensible, or realistic. This form of "encouragement" leads us astray if our goal is truly to be grounded.
For me and my house, we desire only the truth - not what panders to any desire for hoped for presumptions as truth. Beyond that, my assurance of things hoped for and conviction of things not being seen is, and shall always and only be, reposed in the One from whom all things flow.
