Counter Mantra to Christmas Credit

Tuesday 1 December 2009

The cycle of consumption rears its head as it has done for quite some time. Consumption is neither good, nor bad, it 'just is' and right now the majority of media exposed potential consumers are being lured, enticed and occasionally conned into parting with their hard earned money to satisfy needs and whims. Some consumers are smarter than others given what we see with disciplined approaches to spending money many of us don't have - especially those whom have evolved to embrace the 'enoughness' style of thinking. And in the background of this activity play the jingles of 'jingles' - the Christmas Carol. So for some counter balance I offer a reworked version of a classic carol...

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree

Your Credit Card bills are killing me

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree

Each time you come 

you seem to say to me:

'Forget get those bills, spend your cash away

'Ignore the chills, you don't have to pay today'

And now Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree;

Your Credit Card Bills are killing me...'

 I have just one thought - yes enjoy the moment, and do so in a way that you neither regret in the future, nor dig yourself into a future you can no longer control - spend wisely, cautiously and with some degree of subduedness - this GFG thing is not over yet
