I have so much to say, really. But.
It's by no means a "new" discovery... BUT. I have a lot to say. And I do say "a lot", A lot (of words). What I've noticed when I speak my mind on social media though, is - what I deem as valid points- go unnoticed. And the mindless, stupid and vain selfies that I post get 50+ likes. This is where I realize that this IS where we are right now in society. No denying it. People rather mindlessly just scroll and click, instead of taking responsibility or allowing a bit of education to slip in. Why? Well, I guess theres a lot of shit going on in the world that none of us want to read about, and especially not to take responsibility for..., and that's the easy way to deal with it. Kinda skim through information, but ignore, as if no-one knew that you read it.
You do know you read it though, maybe it struck a chord, or maybe you don't care. I don't know the reason why people choose to ignore important things, and pay attention to the meaningless shit. Well, I think I do.... simply because it's easier to ignore. Believe me, I did for so many years too. And part of me still switch off when the information'news get way too difficult to process.
For example, I believe that charity begins at home, and that's one of the reasons why I stopped eating meat 3 years ago. Stopped drinking dairy milk about 10 years ago.... I still struggle with the transition between being vegetarian and vegan.... believe me it's hard. But I'm doing something, which is better than nothing. My own theory is that it's 100% better to be 95% vegan 100% of the time, than being 100% meat eater, 100% of the time. And although this post as really nothing to do with diet as such, my point is that we don't have to close our eyes just because we don't have a solution. Again, charity begins at home.
Just do something, something that you believe in - to make this world a better place. What do you believe in? Deep down, when no-one is around... what do you truly believe is right and wrong, without getting influenced by the outside world; friends, family and media outlets?
Even if you might think you can't change the world - you can change YOUR world. This is where change starts. Let your charity begin at home too, no matter how big or small you think your own opinion is. There's no better time than now...
Also, happy new year - let's make it a great one!
