Are We Moving Ahead Backwards?

Perhaps the current economic crisis is an opportunity for us to reevaluate our lifestyles, and to reflect on our general health and well-being as compared to earlier, simpler periods in our lives.

Having lived through sixty-four years of continuous change in our standard of living in North America, I do wonder if the improvement in living conditions is worth the ever-increasing stresses of competing for, acquiring and updating these ongoing refinements?

Your story is thought provocaking

I think we need to get some sign to look at our lifes and needs again. and this economic crisis makes it to us all over the world. we lost in the some material things lately. We started to work much for reach what we want and this race made us stressful, angry, unhappy people. we forgot some nice things in our life. some simple things... and this economic crises remind us them again. maybe we needed to go bottom first for understand what is important for us... Thanks for story... Hugs*
