I was born into a society where we are conditioned to want more and constantly strive to "upgrade" to the next step, financial or otherwise. I don't really need half the things I use, whether it be the clothes I wear or the food I eat. I would like to spend more time connecting with the people around me and experiencing the world and less time consuming material things.
Just noticing a few posts on here about getting up earlier. I notice even if I do wake up early (I'm pretty content calling anything before 8am 'early'), I feel a little out of it - like, "what the hell am I gonna do now? Dear 7:16am, I am a stranger to your world." It's led me to consider changing how I regard the time-of-day altogether.
