Does anyone else find it ironic that Americans spend the most money on new things the day after they say they’re grateful for what they have…
The way we fill our every day life with superficial conversations and routines shows that we often assume we are going to live forever and can afford to waste day after day. Our moods and feelings are a way of understanding whether we are living authentically or whether we are inauthentically constructing our life around the expectations of others. When we translate this wisdom from vague feelings to explicit awareness, we may develop more positive resolve about how we want to be.
With money you can buy a house, but not a home.
With money you can buy a clock, but not time.
With money you can buy a bed, but not sleep.
With money you can buy a book, but not knowledge.
With money you can buy a doctor, but not good health.
With money you can buy a position, but not respect.
With money you can buy blood, but not life.
With money you can buy sex, but not love.
maybe instead, we could live in a society that strengthens and uplifts demoralized individuals… how about supporting each other. and yes, that includes you.
You are the key to strengthening your own self image, your own confidence, your own world.
do not let others tear you down, even when that person resides in your head. remind yourself, force yourself to stay positive, to stay aware, to live.
much love to all
