Discount Zyprexa Online

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

Connie Shannon Timing as they say, discount zyprexa online 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, discount zyprexa online 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, discount zyprexa online Social Security card, discount zyprexa online 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, discount zyprexa online but I continue to try.

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

Money has become the most obvious symbol of power, discount zyprexa online safety, discount zyprexa online security and "success".  

It seems money has become more important than anything these days. 
Needless to say, discount zyprexa online as we all watch the tremendous debacle of our financial institutions, discount zyprexa online 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, discount zyprexa online in DC Dolby sound, discount zyprexa online how the green back, discount zyprexa online along with various powerful lobbies, discount zyprexa online governs and decides the actions of our governing bodies. Discount zyprexa online Money ensures who is elected into office today, discount zyprexa online irregardless of the capability, discount zyprexa online skewed belief systems or even the overall competence of the individual. I don't think I even need to give an example, discount zyprexa online but for formalitie's sake, discount zyprexa online look no further than our current presidential and vice-presidential candidates. They are either very wealthy, discount zyprexa online 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. Discount zyprexa online   

Money, discount zyprexa online for all intents and purposes, discount zyprexa online relegates those deemed 'appropriate', discount zyprexa online 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, discount zyprexa online attorney, discount zyprexa online and/or any other white collar professional position.
Of course there are the exceptions -  those who are talented, discount zyprexa online 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, discount zyprexa online how many others for whatever reasons, discount zyprexa online 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, discount zyprexa online who was an amazingly gifted player, discount zyprexa online 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, discount zyprexa online for him to be able to actually "make it"  (ie make a living I'm assuming) in the tennis world, discount zyprexa online one either has to have unlimited funds to reach the necessary levels, discount zyprexa online 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. Discount zyprexa online   I was immersed in a world of tremendous money, discount zyprexa online 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. Discount zyprexa online   A friend of mine's daughter is an exceptional, discount zyprexa online gifted jumper. So much so, discount zyprexa online that although she had her own horse, discount zyprexa online a talented Thoroughbred, discount zyprexa online 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, discount zyprexa online not to mention her tremendous ability with horses, discount zyprexa online she eventually became disillusioned and stressed out from the pressure of simply trying to play on the same, discount zyprexa online 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, discount zyprexa online 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, discount zyprexa online but when I think back to the Bonnie Blairs and Dan Jansen's of the world, discount zyprexa online 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, discount zyprexa online and remind others of the Tonya Harding and the Nancy Kerrigan debacle. One can look at those two young skaters, discount zyprexa online  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. Discount zyprexa online

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

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

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

In the world of education, discount zyprexa online it's pay to play as well.
Or actually, discount zyprexa online pay to learn. Some of my friends are now spending as much, discount zyprexa online (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, discount zyprexa online 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, discount zyprexa online 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, discount zyprexa online and as my mind travels through what I'm seeing these days, discount zyprexa online the issue of money remains the core, discount zyprexa online prevelant, discount zyprexa online powerful force in our lives.  

It has the power to give, discount zyprexa online 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, discount zyprexa online appreciating nature and all it gives us, discount zyprexa online 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, discount zyprexa online "Imagine".
As cynical as this post may sound, discount zyprexa online I don't think we can begin to imagine the possibilities of what we can become, discount zyprexa online 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, discount zyprexa online 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, discount zyprexa online respecting and ultimately enjoying each others gifts, discount zyprexa online skills, discount zyprexa online and moreover, discount zyprexa online company? More importantly, discount zyprexa online can we grant more power to each other as individuals, discount zyprexa online 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, discount zyprexa online and we must, discount zyprexa online  build a world that respects and appreciates each other along with appreciating the miracle of nature. Discount zyprexa online   Because nature truly is a miracle And as disconnected as we may have become, discount zyprexa online we are all still a part of nature. Discount zyprexa online 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. Discount zyprexa online
