You know what has been bugging me since it appeared in my peripheral vision? The cost of living. I’m going out on a limb here, with the risk of sounding old (!), but I’m sure the basic cost of living has gone up. I went to the shop the other day to get some basics – milk, bread, eggs and cheese and I had very little change from $20. Granted, I do prefer organic and gluten free… but it’s still just not right.
I could continue to rant on about it and reminisce about when a bus trip was 50 cents. However, instead I’ve decided to look for alternative options and make a lifestyle change that will better suit me. It’s easy to point the finger at governments and organisations for economic decisions that affect us, the consumer, and by no means am I condoning bad policies, decisions or monopolies. What I am suggesting is that if you are feeling hard done by, start putting energy into seeking alternative ways of living.
Life these days is completely different from the 20 something years ago when a bus ride did cost 50 cents, and we have technology to thank for that. Thanks to technology we have so much more information at our fingertips, we can communicate in real time with people all around the world and create the most amazing experiences for ourselves. There is a new dynamic to doing business and living life. It’s exciting and the possibilities are endless.
