we drink too much, smoke too much ,spend too recklessly ,laugh too little ,drive too fast ,get too angry quickly ,stay up too late ,get up too tired ,read too seldom ,watch TV too much and pray too seldom...
we write more, but learn less, plan more, but accomplish less, we make faster planes, but longer lines, we learned to rush, but not to wait, we have more weapons, but less peace, higher incomes, but lower morals, more parties, but less fun, more food, but less appeasement, more acquaintances, but fewer friends, more effort, but less success...
we build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but have less communication, drive smaller cars that have bigger problems, build larger factories that produce less, we’ve become long on quantity,,but short on quality...
we have confused price with value...
change starts with each person being individually responsible for their actions and behaviour..
what kind of world are we voting for with the way we choose to live our lives?

Yesterday, I was given an extensive look into the lives of Charlotte's art district, NoDa. I only wish more towns and cities had a similar sense of community. #theparadoxofourage #atticus

"More medicines , but less healthiness " #theparadoxofourage #dalailama 🤔

How true. Sadly even more appropriate as years go by.

A little #foodforthought on this #HumpDay from the #DaliLama #TheParadoxofOurAge Somewhere along the way as I have seen it written is that man loves possessions more than they love their fellow man. #thegreatestoftheseislove

The paradox of our age:

We have bigger houses but smaller families;
more conveniences, but less time.

We have more degrees but less sense;
more knowledge but less judgment;
more experts, but more problems;
more medicines but less healthiness.

We’ve been all the way to the moon and back,
but have trouble in crossing the street to meet our new neighbor.

We built more computers to hold more copies than ever,
but have less real communication;
We have become long on quantity,
but short on quality.

These are times of fast foods but slow digestion;
Tall men but short characters;
Steep profits but shallow relationships.

It’s a time when there is much in the window but nothing in the room. - The 14th Dalai Lama

and to balance that out lovers gonna be kind and spread love ❣️ I don't have to explain anything to anyone - except for my son. I will have an answer for every one of his questions. I will keep learning as long as I live and ALWAYS have an open mind by wonder rather then one closed by belief. | #hatersgonnahate #onödigt #educateyourself #key #keepeducatingyourself #trustyourgut #havefaithinyourself #ignorehaters #keepgoing #positivemindpositivelife #loveall #slösaintedintid #hataintekompis #hållnäsantorr #bryntdejbritta #läspå #theparadoxofourage

Work on yourself daily and you will see changes in all aspects of your life, focus on your personal growth. Whats your mindset first thing when you wake up? Are you negative and dreading the day or do you wake up positive and ready to take on the day? How much gratitude do you have towards your life?

How true. Sadly even more appropriate as years go by.
