Been talking with my girls a lot lately about relationships esp one of my youngest,I have twin girls. E is the blonde version of me with an extra dose of Scott stubborn from her dad... She is struggling the most bc she is the most ppl oriented & she loves to help. The conversation or should I say our common rant was about this disposable culture.
I doubt they knew that they were taking the first steps towards world destruction by way of inventing the first disposables.
They were supposed to be helpful & freeing, on the instant level it feels like they are, but almost every self gain has repercussions & Disposables have had a bigger 'karma' than most realize.
Being disposable isn't just water bottles, razors, plates,cups OR a SEA of never ending plastic, it has found it's way into our very thinking,the very fabric of our lives- the foundation of families.
The Disposable attitudes have creeped into relationships. We the Ppl no longer work on relationships we dispose of them when we're DONE with them. We have forgotten how to fix things, we just go get more & throw the broken out. We throw ppl away, ppl have become disposable.
As my years go by I find myself living what was once called a Victory Garden, I grow a lot of my own foods, I make my own dirt. & this has in-turn changed how I live, I buy things I can make myself or repair.
The attitude of a Victory Garden can change our culture as well, for the better; Not only will we make our world safer, but will save relationships...will save families.
I Challenge you all to take steps away from disposable thinking & Towards Victory, starting today.
Change starts with one you, one family, & one day at a time.
