Thoughts on waste.

Human beings are the most wasteful of all animals.

You give a cat a fish and it will eat it on the spot, you give a dog a ball and it will play with it until it falls apart, you care for them and they care for you and brighten your day, no matter who you are or what you have, animals enjoy what they have when they have it, but not humans.

Humans will leave the fish in the fridge and when they remember about it it has gone off, we will leave the ball somewhere until we can’t find, we are amazing at creating waste, we waste food, clothes, water, any commodity that we put our hands on, but we also manage to waste the good things that life gives us that animals don’t seem to grasp as we do, like friendship, love, time, family, intellect, peace…

We act like we don’t feel like it or that it’s all overrated, until it dawns on us that we need it, in some situations we don’t have it anymore because we turned all that to waste, most of us don’t take care or enjoy the good things in life when it’s right there in front of us.

I don’t want waste in my life and I don’t want to create waste out of others, it’s not fair to them or me.

You see, at the end of the day I realised that my dog really loved that ball.

I hope this made sense to whoever reads it, I should be sleeping by now but this was going around in my head.

Good night
