Time for a Routine Change? Today I want to talk about how hard it is to alter your everyday routine. I guess I should say how hard we make it out in our heads, before we even try. I’m guilty as hell on this particular subject. I’m like an 80 year old dog when it comes to change. Even the thought of having to alter my day to day is exhausting. This line of thought is neither healthy nor productive! Like I have stated before, the purpose of this blog is for us to take this journey together and talk about it along the way.
Together, is the only way we can make a difference! I know that personally, I have a ton of work to do on myself. My job, health, and location are all problems for me. I’ll bet there are millions of people who are in the same situation as I am. These are tough times and they only seem to be getting worse. Guys and gals, we have to keep our chins up and work together! We have to create opportunities or nothing will change! No handouts here!
Over the course of the last year, I have discovered that the internet can be a very useful tool in creating change in your life. We old fashioned people need to realize that times are different now. Networking and information searches are vital tools these days. Granted, there is a lot of crap and misinformation out there to fill your head with. You have to use common sense and logic, but doesn’t that go for everything we do?
When it comes to becoming more informed, there are some very simple steps you can take; such as, taking time to find some mainstream and alternative news sources that you like and set yourself up to get notifications. I know most of you have a Facebook or Youtube account. How hard would it be to find some sources and subscribe or like them so you get notified of any updates? An American Warning TV is on both of those, by the way! I’m not saying you have to read every article that comes by, but at least you’re getting the headlines! There are tons of apps for news feeds you can get for your phone, use some! I have one I really enjoy called “News Republic,” on android. I get headlines from all over the globe. Do I read every one of them? No, but at least I am creating that choice.
Once you inform yourself, you start to engage in conversations that before you felt were above you. It is through conversation where change will be born. Live chats are starting to become very popular too. This would fall under the networking category. We have a live chat every Sunday at 6pm PST on AnAmericanWarningTV Youtube channel. Through events like this you can meet and talk to like minded individuals and discuss the news from throughout the week. You could listen in while your tinking around the house. Who knows, you might even make some friends and enjoy yourself a little. Remember once you stop learning, your mind and body will begin to decay. This is a fact of life!
My point is that we need to realize that being informed is vital in these hard times. We need to stop thinking that paying attention and asking questions is un-cool; that news is for old people and retired folks who are bored. Our country and way of life is being threatened, but most have no idea why. Everywhere you go there are people with their face in some sort of device and if you peek at what they are looking at, it’s usually a game or texting. These things are mere distractions that are tricking your mind into thinking it’s being used and productive.
Enough with the bullshit people! You can exercise your mind without having to drive anywhere or take time away from your family. Once you stimulate those brain cells and get involved, maybe you will create some opportunities you never knew existed. I am very thankful for the friends I have made through An American Warning and I enjoy learning with them. Join us in being part of history.
