Life can be like a rollercoaster, with lots of ups and downs

Life can be like a rollercoaster, with lots of
ups and downs

Life is like a rollercoaster, and you never quite know what’s coming next. You’re going up, up, up, only to plummet once you reach the top. Then just when you think you can’t stand to drop any further, you’re jerked upward and then before you know it, you’re upside down.

Luckily, in life, you usually have a little more time to anticipate and prepare. Even though you should try to stay positive and hope for the best as much as possible, you also have to be realistic. You should try to get ready for that rough patch that you will inevitably hit eventually.

Saving up enough money to get you through for a little while if you were hospitalized or got laid off is always a smart thing to do. Health insurance, auto insurance, homeowner’s or renter’s insurance all help you be prepared. And life insurance is a great idea, especially if you have a family.

You can’t live your life in fear of the worst, but you also can’t pretend like nothing bad could ever happen. Live life to the fullest, but have a cushion ready in case you fall.
