Money. Politics. Drama. Ego. Self-Importance. Popular Culture. Schedules. Work. More things that I cannot think of at this moment. Doesn’t it feel like that we’ve totally fucked up this whole “being a human being” thing? Don’t you think that we should start over?
Every time I talk to someone they mention how they’d just love to have a more casual approach to their life. They want to be able to wake up in the morning without an alarm going off. Everyone wants to have a nice and healthy breakfast, take a shower, go for a walk, and then go about doing their daily tasks. We all wanna have it a bit more relaxing and not have to live a life full of rushing around and worrying about the next possible bad thing to come.
I think we could’ve had it that way if we had just done things a bit differently back in the day. Instead we created modern society and filled it with things like money, material goods, and self importance. All of these things give us headaches. All of these things give us anxiety. None of these things are good. We have invented some silly little things that have ruined the human experience.
I aim to find a way to live a life that incorporates the following ideas:
- Waking up every morning without an alarm clock
- Eating a healthy breakfast everyday
- Going on 2-3 walks everyday
- Spending more time with Haley, Finn, and Aero
- Raising chickens and rabbits and using their waste to help fertilize our gardens
- Being patient with every human being that I interact with
- Working with Haley to run Fidelia Hall and have it focused on community and events above profits and politics.
- Spending more time sitting in the yard
- Performing and composing music that makes me happy
- Reading and listening to great stories and music
- Playing video games that make me smile
- Going to bed when my body tells me it is ready for rest
- Eating things that are not poison
TL;DR: I think modern American society is rubbish and that there’s a reason why we feel so stagnant these days. In theory, modern society was a great idea, but in reality it hasn’t worked out well.
