Image repost from the exceptionally talented @thenordictribe. Today is a day marked by obsession: sports, eating too much, eating to little, guilt about eating, shaming people for eating guilt, making the perfect meal, early Black Friday consumeristic gluttony, historical accuracy, historical innacuracy, pomp and circumstance, everyone with an axe to grind and a victim agenda to validate their lack of any real integrity. Fuck all of that bullshit.
Spending time with your family being grateful is a good thing. Being a savvy consumer and utilizing the ridiculous promotions to acquire useful and beneficial objects for you or loved ones is good. But how much else is theatre? Really look at that today, if you even cared enough to read this. Why are you performing and for whom? The ones who will take the time to read this probably don't need this advice. But, it may make you more aware of others doing it around you and hopefully help you shake them from their drugged dreaming. Becoming a better person, a better friend or partner or parent or child or sibling, growing with others who share the same passion to make the world a better place by living better every day, that is the shit that matters. I'm going to adult a little, and then I'm going to go climb some mountains in the rain again. I am grateful for my health to be able to do so, for my proximity to nature that enables me to make these journeys, for the friends I will join with later tonight and for all the other souls seeking self-determination and sovereignty. 🍻 here's to you fuckers, you know who you are. Skål!
