I’m getting older now and it has finally begun to dawn on me why those who live simply are always smiling so much. They simple don’t approach life as some sort of gauntlet to be mastered and subdued. It really is about winning and losing at all. It’s simply all about living. This is what I am learning as I have shifted to a more holistic approach to living my life. And recreational marijuana has been an important element in this overall approach and lifestyle change. Thankfully with the advent of legal weed, I can make recreational cannabis a routine part of my life. The very presence of recreational marijuana in my life has allowed me to further embrace a lifestyle that was so foreign to me for so long. I was raised to be a very effective achievement machine. That’s not a knock on my parents because that was how society viewed the optimum way to raise a child. However, there wasn’t a whole lot of real compassion or caring thrown in there with all the grinding toward success. That would ultimately end up wrecking my life. And honestly, I’m glad that life got wrecked because it was a miserable one indeed. I didn’t love anything but material possession, praise and false power. It cost me a very unhealthy marriage. But to be honest, I don’t think we were ever as much in love as we were in partnership. Now, I have a different perspective that is due in large part to recreational weed. I’m just so thankful that I can simply go to the legal weed store in order to get access to this important part of what helps me be humble and happy.
