We talk a lot about freedom We fight for freedom. We wish for freedom – Yet most people choose to be slaves.
What do I mean?
People are slaves to commercial foods that taste bad and make you fat and sick.
People are slaves to dieting
They are slaves to the prescription drugs that maintain your life in one way or another
They are slaves to daily overload
Slaves to TV
Slaves to what other people think
Slaves to always wanting more – never enough
Slaves to the cell phone
Since this is Independence Day weekend – isn’t it a good time to break free?
Let’s take a couple baby steps.
1. If you’re talking to someone – whether it be a friend or a sales clerk, if the cell phone rings – let it go to voice mail. Do you really need to be connected 24/7? Besides, it’s incredibly rude. I don’t even give my cell phone number out. I’m home enough. You can call me there. If I’m not there, I’m busy. I’ll call you later. Try it. It’s very freeing.
2. It’s summer. Get your butt outside! Turn off that TV and go live life. There’s a bajillion things to do. Spoken like a real mother, ey?
That’s enough for now. Don’t want to send you into shock.
Watch for Part 2…
