Quote of the Week

Standard

The culture doesn’t encourage you to think about such things until you’re about to die. We’re so wrapped up with egoistical things, career, family, having enough money, meeting the mortgage, getting a new car, fixing the radiator when it breaks. We’re involved in trillions of little acts just to keep going. So we don’t get into the habit of standing back and looking at our lives and saying, Is this all? Is this all I want? Is something missing?-Morrie Schwartzt

Healthy

Standard

I just don’t understand why people will waste their money on frivolous items like expensive handbags, shoes, or clothes or who knows what else….but refuse to spend money on their health.

People are so gung-ho about getting healthy until they have to cough up a little extra money for it. You have no problem spending money on that name brand purse, those expensive shoes…or better yet….spending money on going out to eat, or stopping at Starbucks every morning for that “perfect coffee”, but the moment something is offered to you that will improve your health…you want nothing to do with it. You go silent.

Investing a little extra money in your health now is a hell of a lot cheaper in those medical bills you could have later on. That name brand hand bag or those expensive shoes are NOT going to prevent things like heart disease, diabetes, etc.

Furthermore, when someone offers you something that could potentially change your life, don’t be resistant to it! Just open your mind!

Seriously?!!

Standard

“The world wants to be deceived, so let it be deceived”

Why do we pay to live on this Earth? Isn’t this a basic right like breathing, eating, and moving about freely? But the truth is we live in gilded cages, people all over the world looking for material things. Consumerism will be the end of our freedom; and every day we are forced to join the rat race.

What’s wrong with us? We express our emotions in dollar signs and seek solace by buying soulless items.  We distract ourselves with all these meaningless items and don’t see what’s really  going on around us. Why items are being worshiped and loved while people are being objectified? It is up to you and me to refuse to being defined by our paychecks, I refuse to be a puppet.

Shape of my heart

Standard

They say everything has a price

But not my heart

You cannot put a price tag on it

My heart is not something that’s open to the highest bidders

It is not something that can be bought by material things

Even diamonds do not ignite flames in my heart

All my heart needs is you

And only your eyes can start fire and revolution in my heart
