There are some things that I absolutely love about life today. Technology, People that are close to me, Meditation, Cooking, and Sharing it all with my best friend and significant other.

There are also things that I don’t care as much for. People living in Poverty, Financial & Corporate Greed, Government & Politics and people who bleed their lives on social media.

What do these two things have in common?

They tend to take over people’s lives and need to be disciplined in moderation. No matter if its something we love or dislike, it’s a part of our daily lives. So we need to make the best of both without allowing each one to overpower our lives. Balance is the key.

I could stay home and meditate all day and everyday, but it wouldn’t pay my bills. I could buy the top notch smartphone, but it will be a downgrade by the time the next generation is released. I have to read and listen to out nations ups and downs, and read about people getting hurt or take too many selfies – but I don’t want to see it.

But no matter how much you love something or dislike it, you aren’t going to take it with you when your time comes.

Live a little. Rest a little – my mantra.
