Why do we settle for less when we could have more? Huh? I thought our theme for life was “I want it, I want it all, and I want it now”. So where does this settle for less thing even come from?
The Little Children and Jesus - Matthew Mark and Luke
Is that headline for real? Should grade school children learn battlefield trauma care? Why even ask this shocking question? Because this is already the law in Texas for 7th graders and up. Now there’s a bill to propose this training for 3rd through 5th graders as well. Seriously.
People are less happy over the last decade. That really shouldn’t be a surprise. At least, not for people who are honest. While the number of millionaires and billionaires continues to rise, the number of people falling lower on a socioeconomic scale is rising even faster. That, and other factors, leads to a general feeling of being “less happy”. Maybe a better way to put it is just plain unhappy.
The question is – why?
