If you feel oddly relieved as the country officially enters a recession, we want to hear from you. Maybe you no longer feel pressure to make millions by the time you're 40? Maybe watching your 401K disappear reminded you that in the end you can do everything right, but it's still often out of your control? Maybe, although you were laid off, you've found ways to live more simply, and now have time for what really matters--like playing with your kids? If you've been able to find any kind of silver lining in these dark economic times, please tell us about it.

Have you found an upside to the ugly economy?
Please explain and include your age and occupation.
