In this world many people’s ambition in life is to make money, and lots of it. The live their lives striving to achieve this goal ignoring pretty much everything around them because they’re working. I don’t see any sense in it. You make money to spend it, a vicious cycle that never stops. Now you’re sucked in, you sacrificed everything to acheive wealth which is when you realise – you’re not happy. Buying new clothes, gadgets, cars etc. gives you happiness momentarily – it’s not going to last. If one day your wealth disappears, what do you have left? No matter what you own, money does not equal happiness . Get a real goal, one that will give you satisfaction in the long run. Do not settle for the shallow joy material things give you – that’s not real happiness.
There’s a strange thing we do. Most of us anyway. We get very passionate about things that have very little to no impact on our lives. People make posters, t-shirts and websites with slogans that we’re not A/ going to understand B/ care about in 5 or 10 years. Who cares that microsoft is getting rid of paint, that pluto is no longer a planet or that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie broke up? We focus so much on such stupid, pointless things and ignore the real issues that are taking place around us. We have done too much ignoring, too much shifting focus away from real issues. Ignoring doesn’t change anything, ignoring doesn’t help. But just talking doesn’t solve problems. Just talk and no action is the same as no talk. Act to solve issues, no matter how small your action, no matter how small the issue.
