The Joy of Not Being Sold Anything
It's easy to find yourself lost in a sea of advertisements. Billboards, TV, Radio, the Internet, etc. Everyone is screaming to grab the public's attention. And for the most part, they have the same message: BUY SOMETHING! Not only that, but buy something NOW (respond to this blog within the next twenty minutes and we'll DOUBLE the offer!).
Sometimes, this onslaught is truly overwhelming. It's at moments like these that a reminder of simplicity resonates the strongest. An improvised message on a billboard that has yet to filled with the latest and greatest thing everyone should have reminded me of the joy in simplicity today.
Consumption is a choice, not a mandate. And these consumption choices can be made responsibly, or in some of the best instances, the choice is made not to buy at all.
