BACK2BASICS: SLOW DOWN

Back2Basics is as the title implies going back to a simpler lifestyle. Far to many have allowed advertisements and  personalities to tell them how to live and think. Common sense has become devalued; research has become obsolete.

Once upon a time traditions were embraced as a way to maintain a family culture; an environment of love and appreciation. Over the years traditions have been perverted or considered unnecessary. Being traditional meant you knew how to solve your own problems without the input of outside forces, it meant you were not dependent on government entities, psychological data, educational standards or technological advances. Once upon a time being traditional was a good thing.

The airwaves are full of information that declare what you should have. It is the newest, the fastest, the biggest, the sexiest, the most necessary whats’-it you can have.  You are told: who is bad and who is good, what is wrong and what is right. But, none of this is significant. Much of the information out there is wrong.

In going back to basics you must think about what you believe and why you believe it. Going back to basics requires your ignoring trends. It also means slowing your life down a bit in order to do things without being dependent on something that may not be here tomorrow.

How many things do you have that you can do without? In order to determine the answer you must first determine what it is you think you have to have. Here are a few things that we have to make life ‘easier’-

  • Microwave
  • Newest cell phone
  • Latest television
  • New car with all the electronic gadgets built-in
  • Multiple cars
  • Extravagant vacations
  • Credit Cards


The world wants you to move faster than you should but after  over 2,000 years of existence there is still only 24 hours in a day. Those who die with a lot of toys don’t take it with them.    xxx written by Marsha L F Randolph
