What is this world coming to?

A little off topic in honor of peace.

How many times have you heard that statement? Are you someone who is asking just that?

We are partly responsible for the outcome. It is not a new saying, our Parents and Grandparents said the same thing. Does that mean we are becoming just like them? No it means we are hopefully becoming responsible adults and as parents or grandparents are concerned for the future. That is part of the problem, we are not doing enough to teach good family values. Most of us feel we are doing a good job and that the busy society we live in is controlling how we spend time with family. Stop making excuses and start making choices, ultimately we are to blame. How can we change you ask; that is up to you.

I am not trying to tell you how to live your life just that all of us are guilty of something. We can do better, we have to.

Think about the days when only one person in the household worked. Talk to your elders listen to the stories and ask, if they look back what was important to them? What made them rich? How did they gain knowledge?

We can’t go back and we don’t really want to. Technology is a wonderful thing but remember it is also the reason we are aware of what goes on around us. We need to use this information to make educated decisions not fuel a fire we cannot control.

Social media can be great for keeping up with those you hold dear that maybe far away. It’s especially heart warming when it helps find your lost dog or a missing person. But just because you are now friends with old high school classmates is not a reason to share your intimate details.

 Think before you post …. Pre social media, even if the call was free would you pick up the phone to tell your not so favorite class mate that you just had a fight with your husband or that you bought new shoes?

Everyone has Cajones on Social Media and it is adding to our unstable world.
Be kind or be quiet since most likely there is more to the story.

How many times as a teen did you write a letter that was hurtful only to feel terrible later. As the saying goes “The Pen is mightier than the Sword” how true.



About Atouristlife

I have moved a lot in my lifetime. I also love cars, so loving travel is logical. My first attempt at being my own travel agent came after an exasperating experience in 2001. I had booked a Disney Vacation Package it was to be our first far away vacation as a family and my children’s first visit to Disney World. Through our travel agent I made the arrangements which included a direct flight, transportation, and our hotel with trip insurance. We were scheduled to fly out in November 2001 but then September 11th happened and that changed everything. First there were a lot of air restrictions besides being afraid to travel. I made some calls to see what would happen and found out the flights would be changed. The regulations no longer allowed for any direct flights due to concerns of hijacking and carrying too much fuel. I called the travel agent to cancel and was told the insurance did not cover that type of cancellation. I was furious. What was the point of paying for the Insurance? I was told we could possibly call the airlines for a credit and drive, which was not an option. After weeks of worrying we made the trip. The flight originally was 4hrs but now took 21 hrs but we had a great time. From then on I am the only one in charge of my travel arrangements. Insurance is still a very smart purchase as long as you are educated on what it covers and choose the best option for you. One size does not fit all, I am here to help you make the best informed decisions to benefit your lifestyle and budget , contact me today. Check out my Disney Quick Tips and many other adventures.
