Stop Spending & Start Living

Of course, I *try* to stay abreast (tee hee) of industry news, but seriously, reading articles with words like “ad spend”, “regional networks”, “2016 outlook”, “fourth-quarter earnings”, “strategic priorities”, “fast growth markets”, “investment management”, “global trends”……… *YAWN*

Many years ago I made a promise to myself to never work for anything with a bottom line to protect, or a profit and loss sheet to balance. And every day that I’m not doing that, has been a good day worth living.

Maybe one day the world will realize that a meaningful life is OUT THERE, not in a hierarchical boardroom, not in a fancy branded store, and most definitely not in that wad in their wallet.

Consumerism is so out of whack. Here, almost everyone’s lifestyle revolves around activities and services that require money. Why do we pay others to do things we can do for ourselves? Why do we pay to be entertained, pay to be fed, pay to work out, pay to hang out, pay to be pampered, pay to feel good about ourselves?

The best things in life are free. They’re just waiting for you to stop spending to discover them.
