This culture confuses excitement and fulfillment. Fulfillment can't be mass produced and sold in 30 second increments. It's not quantifiable. Excitement is much easier to package and monetize, and because it's not fulfilling, getting a little just makes us want more. We are bombarded by it and our appetite can never be sated and the means become the ends and we end up spending all our time, money, and energy chasing the next high, the next new thing. We're a nation of addicts. Viva la capitalism.

Part of conscious capitalism is vigilant defense of your mindshare. Just cuz they're sellin' don't mean you have to buy, or even pay attention. Your time, and especially your attention, are the most precious things you own, and the 21st century has made our culture the battlefield to harvest those things from you as much as possible.

The first step is awareness.

listening to music will not fulfill you
watching tv will not fulfill you
watching movies will not fulfill you
playing games will not fulfill you
eating food will not fulfill you
empty sex will not fulfill you
sleeping all day will not fulfill you
buying stuff will not fulfill you

creating will fulfill you
sharing yourself with others will fulfill you
traveling and learning about people will fulfill you
developing trust and nurturing intimacy will fulfill you
making things better, in some small way, wherever you go
will fulfill you

it starts with yourself
but it doesn't end there
there is always more to do, more to learn, more to give
life is growth and change
things will settle down when you die
until then
seek fulfillment in life
when you are fulfilled, excitement is just a novelty, not a need

Stranger Danger!
Maybe it's just me and my overactive CSI watching mind...? But i do not allow STRANGERS into my home, ever! Today my husband had the day off from work. *knock, knock, knock* on the front door at around 11am. I said, "it's probably the mail lady if you want to answer and see if it's a package" So he get's up, answeres the door...and i can kind of hear her talking. It was a door-to-door sales person. I hear her as clear as if she was talking to me say, "so, can i come in and sit down and talk with you?" He said, "sure." I'm like....WHAT????! I'm sitting on the couch watching tv in my PJ's (so was he!). He leans into the back room and say's, "i'm not sure what she wants?" I give him the look of 'i'm gonna kick your ass if she comes inside our house' and tell him..."do NOT let her in our house!"

He goes back to the door and i'm leaning over watching this woman and now a MAN walk into our home. She's like, "so can i just like sit down." I got kinda mad and got up and said, "NO you can please LEAVE my house now!"

They walked out promptly.

But OMG! How old is my husband? My own 8 year old daughter knows to NOT let a complete stranger into our home. Not just 1 person, but he was about to let 2 people in that he still isn't quite sure what they were selling (if anything!)

I'm really not a happy camper with him today. I tried to talk to him about the situation, and he felt i was being over active with my thinking. i don't know that i will ever trust to leave him alone with Claire right now. If he is dumb enough to fall for a tall blonde door-to-door sales person with the "i'll be right back" and she comes back with a Strange MAN who now wants to come in our house! I honestly don't know what he was thinking?

So, is it normal to let door-to-door sales people into your home? I've never, ever done it! It's like living as a woman rule 101 in my book. But i supose he isn't a woman and didn't ever learn this rule of not allowing strangers into your home for NO reason other than saying, "can i come in and talk with you about 'our product'?" Not even knowing what the product was! She never said what she was selling when he said she could come inside and then would be back...coming back with another person.

Maybe i should think more of people of the world, but i watch the news and i see people every single night who did something dumb and something dumb/bad happened to them. I'm not only protecting myself in this life, but thinking of the safty of my daughter as well. Evidentally, my husband can take care of himself ;-)
