8 more days till I turn 41. This year I am feeling very detached to birthday celebrations. Wanting so badly to break away from what society tells us is normal. Like making a big deal for bdays, or cinco de mayo, how about valentines day. I hate having to follow along. I will use valentines day as my example. I personally do not want to keep feeding the consumer machine. BUT i keep on because I don’t want my children to be the kids that didn’t bring valentines cards and candy.
With this being 2012 my view of our future based on our past is grim to say the least….if I have to spend money on bdays can’t we like change it up to hey in honor of your bday i will buy XX amount of emergency food, or XX number of batteries and flash lights.
