The old axiom of empires is they either expand or collapse. Everyman is his own empire. 

What can a man do?  Try new things.  Food, clothing,  attitude, something. 

For example,   I grew up poor, pretty white bread plain,  and in homogeneous area.  So the foods I grew up liking were fairly limited.  Meat and potatoes.  Nothing interesting. 

Long story short is the local store  here sells dried fruits.  I am working myself through them. Apples, apricots,  bananas,  fruits I've never heard of.  

This week I am eating dried figs,  just like in the freaking Bible!  Im eating dried Turkish figs in the USA.  How cool is that.  I'm living the same experience of humans from 5k years ago for only $7/lb

The moral is that try new things, books, attitudes,  something.  Expand or shrink. 

You dont need to spend money on a Porsche or Brianna.  Find someone that you value and try it.  Heck even if I hated them it was only $7.  

 

PS they make you poop more and they are supposedly healthy.

I have found I like brussel sprouts!  They are mini cabbages, and work well with pork dishes!

I am also using a lot more turmeric in my cooking, and essentially eating more Indian dishes.  Turmeric is a natural anti-inflammatory and helps with reducing pain associated with inflammation and other chronic illnesses.

 

Do NOT chase tail. Turn yours around and live FREE!

That's what I'm talking about.  A few spices, some baby cabbage,  some fruits that I didnt have to dry myself. Uly got a gun.  Simple things.

This is what life is about, Sobieski. If you are not experiencing life then you are not truly living. You are wasting life if you are not taking the chance to live in the moment. We do not have tomorrow promised.

I was once poor and lived on the street, found my food in trash cans and worked my way up from having nothing except a small backpack that contained all of my possessions. By taking every opportunity that came my way, I was able to work my way up from that, to now living in a house and owning a computer that is bigger than that old backpack. Material goods come and go, but your life experiences are what defines your life; and what you have done with the time you were alive. 

In short, as Sobieski states, go and experience life while the choice is still there to do so.

Words I've always lived by.
