Warning: Today's blog is a bit of rant, and could be a bit polarizing. Read at your own risk.
At one time I figured I was crazy for the things I did that seemed to be against most social norms. The more I think about it, the more I think everyone else is crazy for not living more like I do.
For a long time I thought embracing yoga was something only hippies did, but what's so crazy about wanting to get my mind body and soul in good working shape and order?
How about not owning a TV? Surely that makes me nuts right? No, absolutely not! I have more time than people who watch TV every day, I'm more active, I use less electricity, and I'm not as influenced and brain washed by regular intakes of media and advertising. Did I also mention I have more time than those with out a TV?
How about this whole selling a car to use my bike to go everywhere? Well, I must say I'm not sure what's crazy about getting fitter, more financially independent and helping the environment?
When I told my mother that I was going to sell my car, the first thing out of her mouth was, "you are just going to intimidate guys that much more, you are going to just narrow the pool of people who want to date you that much more". Well, you know what I say to that? Good! If someone doesn't hold my values when it comes to what is important in life or what isn't well then they can go find some other bimbo to date, because it wouldn't be me anyway.
Last time I checked I wasn't crazy, and I'll no longer be calling myself crazy even when joking around. I have more time than most people because of the simpler slower lifestyle, I'm fitter, and if I have anything to do with it I'll live a hell of a lot longer and not be a burden on our medical system.
I think the crazy ones are those that don't care more about their time, their bodies and the environment.
I don't mean to be judgmental, but when other peoples lifestyles affect my wallet, It's time to pull out the judgement stick.
Ok. Now, I've said it and am done. Back to "pretty pink and blue thoughts".
