America is in a Depression but Whose Fault is that?
You may have just read the title to this blog and are left wondering “What does this have to do with weight loss?” Well my answer to that question is, “It has everything to do with it!” Did you know that 2/3 of America is considered obese? Which is not surprising being that we no longer have to fight, hunt, and kill to get our food. No not at all, we live in a time of fast food and microwaves. It’s sad to say but we as humans try to find the easiest and fastest but yet not so beneficial way to do everything.
Our bodies are set up naturally to cheat, and find the easy way out of things. Billions of dollars are spent every year on technologies that makes things easier and more accessible. Things like cars, planes, computers, telephones etc. Technology does make our lives easier but it will do so at a cost. We’ve paid the price with our health, and fitness; our bodies have dealt with the burden and have paid the cost. America as a whole has become over fat, and extremely lazy.
America is in a depression but whose fault is that? The fault belongs to each and everyone of us. We as individuals have not taken care of ourselves, our families, our jobs, nor have we taken care of our country. If you study history you will find that in the great depression it was not the government that fixed things, it was we the people that came together and fought for a change to be made. We the people are the one’s responsible for the mess in this country, and I believe it is wrong of us to place blame on any political person in government.
Government is there to make laws, rules, and regulations, but those are made by the demands of we the people. It was we the people who fought against slavery, racism, women’s right, gay’s rights, animal cruelty, tax regulation, etc. It is we the people that put politicians in government to fight for what we the people want. But we the people have become to fat and lazy to step in and fix things ourselves. We would rather live average and ordinary lives, and let the government magically make things all better. Sorry to tell yah but, “It ain’t gonna happen.”
To make a real change in America, each of us individually need to live our lives to the best of our ability. Anything we do needs to be the best we can do. I strongly believe that if we do not take control of ourselves, and if we do not become the master of our own lives. Then anything we do, know matter how great a job it is will never be done to the best of your ability. I believe that 2/3 of this country are not performing at there best, therefore our country is spiraling downward at top speeds.
We are living in a blessed nation, and the generations before us worked hard and worked there best to make this country what it is today. But this new generation has taken all of that for granted and has sat back and watched as America has crumbled. Now ask yourself, what can I do to make a real positive CHANGE???? The answer is simple to say but difficult to do.
Become the master of your life, and take control of your surroundings. If you’re over fat then lose weight, if you’re weak then get stronger, and search for every flaw you can find in yourself and make ways to improve them. Do what you know you need to do, and stop doing what you know you shouldn’t be doing. If we plan on pulling America out of this depression, then each of us individually need to grab the steering wheel and take control. Once you have done this then spread the word to each and every individual you may know.
This country needs to be restored and we must start from the inside and work our way out. My goal in life is to inspire as many people as a can to make this change in their lives. I truly believe that success is in us all, we just have to want it bad enough. When we all individually work at our best, then together we can make a real and lasting change. United we stand, divided we fall.
