Atacand Overnight Delivery

The thoughts that wallets (and Fed Exes) will bring.....

Connie Shannon Timing as they say, atacand overnight delivery is everything. The other day I received an unexpected Fedex package from my brother and sister-in-law. 

I opened it and found a wallet with a note inside from my sister in law, atacand overnight delivery stating it was mom's old wallet they found while cleaning out closets and old items in their house.  

Inside the wallet was my mother's old driver's license, atacand overnight delivery Social Security card, atacand overnight delivery insurance and medical cards along with her old checkbook balancing book.
My mother always kept impeccable records when it came to the check book.  

Something I haven't managed quite as well, atacand overnight delivery but I continue to try.

While I was both surprised and touched by the fact they sent me one of mom's old wallets, atacand overnight delivery it also seemed to strike me as a symbolic representation of what so often glued our family together and in other instances, atacand overnight delivery divided us apart. 

I was talking to a friend of mine the other day and she had mentioned her own family situation.
When their mother died, atacand overnight delivery some of the siblings fought so much over money and property that none of the siblings are speaking or associating any longer. What is sad is I've heard similar stories quite a bit from friends. I understand. Atacand overnight delivery

Money has become the most obvious symbol of power, atacand overnight delivery safety, atacand overnight delivery security and "success".  

It seems money has become more important than anything these days. 
Needless to say, atacand overnight delivery as we all watch the tremendous debacle of our financial institutions, atacand overnight delivery we begin to realize just how dependent we have all become on a monetary system. Not to mention that money now dictates almost every aspect of our own lives.  And as we are now seeing, atacand overnight delivery in DC Dolby sound, atacand overnight delivery how the green back, atacand overnight delivery along with various powerful lobbies, atacand overnight delivery governs and decides the actions of our governing bodies. Atacand overnight delivery Money ensures who is elected into office today, atacand overnight delivery irregardless of the capability, atacand overnight delivery skewed belief systems or even the overall competence of the individual. I don't think I even need to give an example, atacand overnight delivery but for formalitie's sake, atacand overnight delivery look no further than our current presidential and vice-presidential candidates. They are either very wealthy, atacand overnight delivery and/or are being sponsored by those who are very wealthy. The same can essentially be said for those running for state and local offices. Atacand overnight delivery   

Money, atacand overnight delivery for all intents and purposes, atacand overnight delivery relegates those deemed 'appropriate', atacand overnight delivery to be placed into positions where they can make more money.  

Money dictates to those who have the opportunity to receive the necessary education to become a physician, atacand overnight delivery attorney, atacand overnight delivery and/or any other white collar professional position.
Of course there are the exceptions -  those who are talented, atacand overnight delivery driven and/or lucky enough to receive scholarships and/or have connections to those with money who are willing to help them out to achieve such goals. However, atacand overnight delivery how many others for whatever reasons, atacand overnight delivery fall between the cracks and/or simply don't have the appropriate connections or parents to support them? Money certainly grants power to those who are then granted power to control other's lives and their livelihoods. 

Some time back I was talking with a tennis instructor I was taking lessons from, atacand overnight delivery who was an amazingly gifted player, atacand overnight delivery and I asked him why he wasn't touring himself.  

He replied that he had for a brief time attempted to make it on the circuit.
However, atacand overnight delivery for him to be able to actually "make it"  (ie make a living I'm assuming) in the tennis world, atacand overnight delivery one either has to have unlimited funds to reach the necessary levels, atacand overnight delivery or know someone who does have funding and is willing to sponsor them. That seems to be the bottom line.  

Obviously this is true in other sports. 

Horses have always been a love of mine and I've ridden all my life.
The level of money to even ride for pleasure today has become so expensive I can't imagine how children who don't have wealthy parents have an opportunity to engage in something that meant the world to me as a kid.  
A few years back I leased an Arabian horse in an exclusive area of Los Angeles. Atacand overnight delivery   I was immersed in a world of tremendous money, atacand overnight delivery tremendously valuable horses and tremendous exclusivity. Some of the horses that were being ridden by very young kids were worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. I wonder how does that compute to a child? In reality it doesn't. However I would imagine it does to parents who perhaps want their child to win at all costs. Atacand overnight delivery   A friend of mine's daughter is an exceptional, atacand overnight delivery gifted jumper. So much so, atacand overnight delivery that although she had her own horse, atacand overnight delivery a talented Thoroughbred, atacand overnight delivery very wealthy individuals also wanted her to show their horses for them. That's how good she is. She often placed at the highest levels. Even though her talent was obvious, atacand overnight delivery not to mention her tremendous ability with horses, atacand overnight delivery she eventually became disillusioned and stressed out from the pressure of simply trying to play on the same, atacand overnight delivery very unequal playing field as those with vast bank accounts. That doesn't address the pervasively cut throat atmosphere which often comes in such arenas, atacand overnight delivery for lack of a better term. 
The world of olympic sports have become incredibly driven by the monetary issue.
That may be obvious to some, atacand overnight delivery but when I think back to the Bonnie Blairs and Dan Jansen's of the world, atacand overnight delivery I can't help but conclude things have increasingly gotten worse for the talented young kids trying to compete and/or perhaps more importantly enjoy their sport and their talent to the fullest these days. Perhaps I should remember as well, atacand overnight delivery and remind others of the Tonya Harding and the Nancy Kerrigan debacle. One can look at those two young skaters, atacand overnight delivery  consider their backgrounds and wonder if somehow a monetary component combined with the tremendous competitive atmosphere along with its own culture of elitism didn't fuel such a terrible event. But I digress. Atacand overnight delivery

With money dictating who gets to play in the game of sports, atacand overnight delivery professional life, atacand overnight delivery and just life itself, atacand overnight delivery  I have to wonder what's being sacrificed in the process? 
How many talented, atacand overnight delivery less wealthy, atacand overnight delivery even less competitive individuals are overlooked, atacand overnight delivery disregarded and/or simply overrun by those who happen to either come from wealth or are rich themselves? Conversely, atacand overnight delivery how many less talented but more monetarily financed and positioned individuals achieve positions they don't necessarily deserve, atacand overnight delivery or deserve at the level they've been given? Does the reality that our tax funds and government reward those already wealthy with more wealth and entitlement, atacand overnight delivery help our society as a whole?   On a deeper level, atacand overnight delivery how much integrity, atacand overnight delivery honesty, atacand overnight delivery loyalty and morality is lost in the world of monetary value as well?

Seems today, atacand overnight delivery that if one wants to pursue something they love  (that we may or may not have true talent in, atacand overnight delivery but is loved nevertheless), atacand overnight delivery one has to have almost unlimited funds and unlimited time with which to do it.
Certainly there are exceptions, atacand overnight delivery but I wonder about the creativity, atacand overnight delivery the talent, atacand overnight delivery the uniqueness potentially lost by allowing money to dictate who is allowed to play, atacand overnight delivery moreover who 'succeeds' and who doesn't. I don't know exactly where I'm going with this, atacand overnight delivery other than simply to think out loud.    Or more appropriately write out loud. Atacand overnight delivery

I hope I'm not being overly cynical, atacand overnight delivery however, atacand overnight delivery is it cynical to look at situations and wonder how they work, atacand overnight delivery or may not work as the situation may be?
Or perhaps work much better for some than for others? If this is the reality, atacand overnight delivery that you have to pay to play, atacand overnight delivery how does this coincide with the so-called "American dream"? If these are the rules, atacand overnight delivery that there really are no rules, atacand overnight delivery why do we teach our children such myths like 'fairness', atacand overnight delivery 'goodness' and 'loyalty'? Doesn't that seem like a pretty big set up? Is it because of the overall, atacand overnight delivery imbalanced monetary system, atacand overnight delivery we now seem to have such an influx of individuals with moral compasses like Tonya Harding skating around us?  

In the world of education, atacand overnight delivery it's pay to play as well.
Or actually, atacand overnight delivery pay to learn. Some of my friends are now spending as much, atacand overnight delivery (if not more) for their child's elementary/grade school education than I did for my college education. And I went to a private school which was by no means inexpensive. 

On yet another topic:  I went to Malibu the other day with a friend.
As we were driving home I noticed a very exclusive Mobile Home park located not far off the Malibu beach, atacand overnight delivery however certainly not located in obvious "view" of ongoing traffic.    It made me remember an acquaintance/friend ( mutual friends) I knew who happened to live in a very cool 'trailor' park off the coast as well.   I remember thinking how creative she had been with her limited space and what a lovely home she had made for herself.   

I haven't kept up with her, atacand overnight delivery but the last thing I do remember is hearing the news that she and others were 'relocated' to another area when the park was also relocated.
Can we assume that those with more money and power had the influence to have them 'relocated'? I can't help but then remember all the Native Americans who were "relocated" as well. But I digress yet again. I probably shouldn't mention all the foreclosures....and guess who will pay the bill for all the banking "failures"?  

What an interesting place and time we live.   If 'interesting' is the word.  

From wallets to sports to trailor parks, atacand overnight delivery and as my mind travels through what I'm seeing these days, atacand overnight delivery the issue of money remains the core, atacand overnight delivery prevelant, atacand overnight delivery powerful force in our lives.  

It has the power to give, atacand overnight delivery and the power to take away.   

I have to wonder what would our lives be like if we weren't all ruled by money?
What would life actually be like if we weren't ruled by pieces of paper? If instead our lives were valued by valuing others as much as we do ourselves, atacand overnight delivery appreciating nature and all it gives us, atacand overnight delivery and the incredible miracle of life itself. Okay that sounds stupid. But why in the world does it sound stupid when it's true?

As John Lennon sang, atacand overnight delivery "Imagine".
As cynical as this post may sound, atacand overnight delivery I don't think we can begin to imagine the possibilities of what we can become, atacand overnight delivery until we address the reality of what is. Can we not conjure the courage we use for ourselves and our own solitary visions of success, atacand overnight delivery to become more innovative to create ways to counter the media machine which promotes consumption and greed that is killing us all?   Can we work together to come up with better and more meaningful solutions on how to live and appreciate what really means the most to us in life? Can we shelve the religion and dogma that needlessly divides and deters us from appreciating, atacand overnight delivery respecting and ultimately enjoying each others gifts, atacand overnight delivery skills, atacand overnight delivery and moreover, atacand overnight delivery company? More importantly, atacand overnight delivery can we grant more power to each other as individuals, atacand overnight delivery and grant less to a monetary system that seems to keep us in competition with each other where we might otherwise connect as human beings walking on the same road of life? Am I that much of an idealist that I believe we can, atacand overnight delivery and we must, atacand overnight delivery  build a world that respects and appreciates each other along with appreciating the miracle of nature. Atacand overnight delivery   Because nature truly is a miracle And as disconnected as we may have become, atacand overnight delivery we are all still a part of nature. Atacand overnight delivery Do it for your kids. Do it for your grand kids. Do it for the animals. Do it because its the right thing to do. Atacand overnight delivery
