What are we really living for?

How are we choosing to spend all these precious moments of this life?

Let’s all ask ourselves, what are we really living for?
How are we choosing to spend all these precious moments of this life?

Work so much,
addicted to screens and the fake ‘reality’ of tv and social media,
missing Birthdays, school performances, breakfast together,
head down instead of inquiring and learning about our loved ones,
16hr days in blood to “The Man”,
big house, bigger mortgage,
“all that’s expected of us”, prescribed for us,
Run Run Run
Busy Busy Busy
WHAT FOR?????????????????????????????
What the hell for?

What is important to us? Really – what do we value?

If not for our own feeling of joy and the LOVE of our special ones,
what the hell is any of this for eh? (that’s with a Canadian accent BTW 

Are we living the life we imagine?
Are we even “living”??????

What else is possible?

I trust you enjoy this fantastic story as much as I do.

Superman and I have it on our coffee table for a daily reminder of the cage we choose to put ourselves in and how easy and light it can be to free ourselves from it …if we choose.

What are we overlooking in our lives that could be the very difference that makes a difference?

Who are we overlooking?
Who is living a lonely existence right before our eyes?
Who could we light up by smiling at, helping, complimenting, being there for?
And how would this act of kindness and Humanity make us feel eh?

Do we know and truly understand we can set ourselves free?

Toc! Toc! Toc!
