UK ‘retailers hit by the worst non-food sales growth on record in October’, according to the BBC headline. It would appear that rather than going shopping in the school holidays, families opted for days out instead.
In my opinion this is one way that the globe is waking up; realising that ‘experiences’ over ‘material items’ are more valuable. Dom pointed this article out to me and we talked at length about it; both agreeing that it is a hugely positive turn of events.
Then earlier in the week a discussion broke out in the private QS forum about the #MeToo scandal. Some were upset that it “takes the rich, wealthy and powerful to be accused before something is done”. But really what we are seeing on the news and in our papers is a snapshot of the larger picture. These people are in the spotlight, but the problem runs deep down into the core of society. Another QS member commented that we are entering “a new age of accountability”, and I couldn’t agree more. We will see it first in the headlines with ‘famous’ people, but this new era of accountability will trickle down into every walk of life.
We are waking up
What has gone on before is not good enough any longer
We want to experience life rather than go shopping
We want to treat others the way we wish to be treated
The ‘small’ and ‘average’ Joe is being heard, seen, and acknowledged
YOU make a difference
Do not worry about our future, for there is great change afoot
Nothing will ever be the same again
So smile and see that we are on the verge of a liberation of our past
And YOU dear addict are one of the first
Pushed into a journey of self-discovery via a substance
And one of the forerunners of this new world
The global wake up has begun….
