Saving, working, living and loving

Do you have a mindset to live a better life?

Some people retire early, others learn later in life.

But the good life is there when you are ready for it.

Ms. Scrooge

Why are the homeless creating all this trouble ?

Time is going too fast.

Look the weekend is almost over,

I guess you are going to work on Monday.

Price of food is going through the roof.

I don’t have to pay service fees.

The bank only gave me 3 cents interest on my savings account.

Christmas is here in a couple of months, I have lots of time to work out my problem if there is a postal strike.

Since she is mad at me, I won’t buy her children any presents either.

Christmas is becoming so commercial.

Shadow Work And The Facade Of Being Too Sentamental

I sicken myself with a barrier of sweetness and niceness.

My grief is barrier by my foolishness of sentimentality.

But am I ready to know my pain and suffering?

This work is dark and full of bad habits that numb all feeling.

Sentimentality: The dark side

If I Were Epictetus….

If I were this ancient classic philosopher,

I would read and write, travel and explore and so much more.

I would study and research, listen and learn.

My goal would be to do no harm and to live the best I could within my own circumstances.

I would study psychology, anthropology, sociology and mathematics, physics and chemistry.

I would hike and bike and do all sorts of exercise.

I would spend time giving back in community.

If I were Epictetus, I would have done so much more,

Because I can read and write and study from hundreds of years of experience and because I was not a slave or lame or limited by my times and place in the world.

Curiosity Is The Spice Of Life

To learn how to break or form a habit,

Learn how it works,

Learn how curiosity works,

Teach her how to fish and she will learn how to live.

Living Paycheck To Paycheck

Being poor or living in the lower class is difficult for many people.

Education is key.

Motivation to change is critical.

Innovation will lead to motivation and a healthy change.

Too many people feel like a slave to money.

There is no simple answer to this struggle in society today.

For people who are willing and able, a preventative approach may be better than a cure.
