Dont be a run of the mill character
Our cities don’t have to be grey, did you know this? We don’t have to be part of a run of the mill system where we live to work, did you know this? Our ancestors once lived happy lives before the internet, before tv, back when they had to create their own fun and food being put on the table was not always a guarantee. However, what astonishes me is that the youth of today sit inside on their laptops trying to find the creativity to write a status other than ” I’m bored “. We are all so bored, we have the opportunity to do anything, although opportunity in our fast moving world today means to have a good job, to be successful means to be famous or to be rich.
However, what kind of price can be put on the natural world and all its beauty? We’ve built on that now, we’ve covered it up, we’ve hidden all the green with grey and gloom. Our bricks cover grass, our buildings cover mountains, our sea is ruined with the pollution of oil. Even the most successful person in life spends over half of the hours they will spend on this planet in their lifetime in the work place, and now with mobile phones and how serious it is all taken, you are never a call away from work and even in your spare time you spend it recovering from tiredness of work, and thinking about work, many of us on weekends even work then too! We have a profit driven mindset, spending time with the family doesn’t seem to matter when you have a big house to live in, spending time with your children comes before work because after all you need to make money because what are time and love when you can buy your child the latest games console where they will sit in their room away from the family, not communicating, or going outside and seeing what is left of our beautiful world?
I’m trying to tell you that money isn’t the most important thing, in the end every man has only one thing, memories. Of course it is great to achieve things, I myself am at University studying a degree, but we live in a world were we judge on looks, where a CV describes a personality, where we don’t communicate anymore, where we have lost our creativity due to a lack of confidence and belief in ourselves. We are scared to be ourselves, the most important thing is to fit in and not be noticed.
We are led to have a false sense of happiness, we have pointless interests like anaylising football in too much detail or seeing who is next kicked off the x Factor. Turn Facebook off, go outside, develop a hobby that involves spending time with other people and socializing, build something random, don’t play a sport invent your own, instead of working this weekend spend time with your children and loved ones, if you can’t afford your rent go and live in the forest and hunt for your food, the world is yours walk somewhere rather than driving, enjoy it for what it is and stop ruining it.
