Hype: When the dust settles

after-dust-settles-1

The thing with hype is that when the dust settles, we are left with long term consequences that often we have not planned for.

That’s what hype does, it is fleeting.

Hype makes you think of the now, not caring of what happens thereafter.

The hype of “you only live once,” seduces you to do reckless things for the now, but forgets to inform you that actually you live every day, not once…

The hype of “spend now, it’s your money, you worked hard for it anyway,” forgets to inform you that the consumerism culture leads you to debt that you will have to work even harder to repay.

The hype of “do it, it’s only once, and besides no one will find out,” forgets to let you know that, like drugs, you will be tempted to do it again, and again, until you can’t stop yourself…. until someone finds out.

When the dust settles, the situation will look different than it does today.

Most importantly, when the dust settles, your legacy remains.

When the dust settles, we are able to see clearly, let it be that we are able to see a legacy that you want to leave behind.
