A thought provoking article about a person's return to working the 9to5 after 9 months of backpacking on no income. I remember realizing many of the same things the article speaks of - just how much your expenses go down and how much more frugal you become when the income goes down, and the hours worked is very little to nothing. I really did see that much of what I was spending on was unnecessary, and yet my enjoyment of life increased exponentially. Combine this with all that is going on in our working industries - consumerism; blind quests to increase profits at the expense of health, people, environment; the various political maneuverings towards special interests; the "odd partnerships and relationships" between corporate entities and various governments; the overreliance on the logical; rational; and intellectual systems of "flow"; and our own tendencies to either numb or cut out our emotions and feeling. What we have is a total co-creation of the world we live in today. There is much more to say, but I have already gotten outside the scope of the below article; and it would take a lot more than what seems right for a light inspirational post. Either way, please enjoy and let me know what you think about the lifestyle of 9to5 and how you would like to change it?
