I’m crazy busy these days doing what I consider to be a number of very fun things. The time it is taking away from my writing, however, is less than fun. As I was pondering this minor dilemma I began thinking how much of our society panders to our desire for self-gratification. We want our needs met in relationships. We want to be fulfilled in our careers. We want to be entertained and amused. We work all year to blow our money on once-in-a-lifetime vacations that we take year after year. We leave marriages because we’ve simply fallen out of love. We ask, “What’s in it for me?”
What are your thoughts?
Are we a hedonistic society that panders to the pleasurable? Do we look for the easy way out? Has duty disappeared with disco?
I’m working on a post that further elaborates on this topic and I’d sure like to know what you think. (Yes! You!)
