With regard to food, you can get fast and convenient foods versus gourmet meals that take careful and timely preparation. You can also eat nutritious ingredients compared to things with empty calories. Then there’s the realm of things that are simply unhealthy for you.
All of these qualities can be quite independent of cost. More important, these analogies can be applied to other aspects of life.
Is your physical fitness narrowly focused, just treading water, and injurious in the long run, or are you engaged in progressive exercises, honing specific skills and abilities, and moderating your efforts to not compromise your future?
Are your relationships convenient, nutritious, or toxic? Or do you have deep acceptance and respect, attentive and compassionate, people that are nurturing and encouraging?
What about your sex life? Are you simply having the equivalence of fast food?
These are personal choices, certainly. My hope for you is that they are conscious choices, and that you’re fully aware of the potential ramifications.
