I see the cycle of madness. I see people complain about their taxes being too high, then also complain about the lack of government spending. I see people complain about wait times at hospitals, I also see them eating shitty food, living unhealthy lives.
I see people complain about the lack of progressive educational choices for their kids, but these same people do not want to work on their kids education at home.
I see eco conscious people talk the talk but not walk the walk.
I see the two deadliest sins on our planet, comfort and convenience running rampant.
We will sacrifice almost everything for comfort and convenience.
We sacrifice our dreams, our health, our community, our kids future for comfort and convenience.
So what can we do?
Start by taking care of yourself. Make the wise choice. Eat good, local, whole foods.
Then look at what you need and what you want. Be clear on the difference. You need food, you want chips. You need clothing, you want brand names. You need a roof over your head, you want a large, modern house. You need community, you want to look good or look important in that community.
Keep learning about the difference between need and want.
Then play. Create. Allow yourself to express yourself. Practice it.
Make choices based on your needs, the needs of your family and the needs of your community.
Everything else is comfort and convenience.
