A Rogue’s Life?
I’ve been thinking…. (YES, I know it doesn’t happen that often!)
This thing we call LIFE.
We’ve got it all wrong.
For hundreds of thousands of years, our ancestors woke up, scratched their dangly bits, ate, drank, hunted (or foraged), made love, and then slept again (about 3 secs after the love-making!).
Now, we seem to have messed it all up?
We get woken up by a BEEPING electronic device, rush into an artificially hot shower where we smother ourselves in garishly coloured chemical cocktails, dress in our man-made fibre clothes, hurriedly eat factory-produced sugar/salt/fat-laden crapola, jump into our environment-polluting machines which convey us to our place of toil, sometimes hours away, we stress and fret and hurry to meet deadlines, we worry about time & money, we worry about relationships, we are tied to our plastic & chrome electronic devices which slowly microwave our remaining brain-cells, we cram un-savoury snacks into our bellies to help us make it through to the end of the day, we rush back home, trying to “beat” the traffic as they all churn out their suffocating fumes, then we get home, eat more sugar/salt/fat laden crap, slump in front of our brain-sucking life-numbing goggleboxes and end up completely stressed, drained, exhausted and unhappy.
Life should be healthy & fun.
And it’s up to YOU to make it so.
Work out what is stressing you and get rid of it.
Work out what you LOVE and surround yourself with it.
What do you REALLY NEED? (Besides Fresh Air, Clean Water, Nutritious Food, Someone to Love and Good Company.) Go get it!
What makes you REALLY HAPPY? Go do it!
The best things in life really ARE free.
I think our ancient ancestors got it… (mostly) right.
