I was thinking of changes I've made over the past five years, changes that have been for the better. A big one is the huge amount of TV I don't watch.
I have a few select shows I love like 24 and Lost, which are both ending this season, along with my life as I know it. But I digress.
When I do watch my shows, I don't watch commercials. That is the secret. I don't know about all the things that I cannot live without. No idea what I'm so desperately missing. I'm much more content in my life and the abundance of what I have.
So how do I do it? DVR of course. You may think you can't afford it, but I'll tell you what you can't afford. Another XL Dominoes Heart Attack in a pizza box, ridiculous medications designed to "enhance" your life, cheap jewelry, expensive perfume, skinny "Dad" jeans, fat mortgages on larger homes, big loans, and small savings accounts.
If you're gonna watch TV, invest in a DVR and skip the propaganda purposely designed to make you feel you have a void in your life.
After all, everyone knows that if you've got Jack Bauer, you've got it all.
