A Blog About Nothing

Sometimes I feel like I am living in a different time. A time that doesn't really exist, but in my own mind. Do you ever feel like that? Lost in your own thoughts, afraid that the reality you have built for yourself isn't really reality at all. Like yesterday when I cheered my heart out for things that were so not n my control. Sports....I love this season, when football and baseball are happening at the exact same time. I love that both the Royals and the Cardinals are in the playoffs. I love the feel of fall, but as I screamed and shouted yesterday I realized just how crazy it is that we pay to watch people play a game.

Don't get me wrong I know it's a lot of pressure for them, a lot of training, and a lot of time. But it just doesn't make sense. How many millions of dollars we spend on our favorite teams when there our kids in our backyards who can't read, write, or eat.

I'm guilty, I know I am. I don't do near what I could do. I know I could do 

How do I see beyond the complacency of my own self?

How so I realize that I am not just caught up in my own reality, but everyone else's ?
