There was once a time before Man became civilized as we are today, that yes they once lived in a shack like this, with little boats as this to get around and fish for their daily meal. This was a simple life, but a life that you worked hard everyday, so you could survive along your path of you journey of life.
A little shack like this wasn’t much, just a simple one room building and sometimes there was a family being raised inside? True there was little space to spread your wings sort of speak, but this space was full of love and made with love and care, back then they made things very well to which they lasted the test of time as well, I remember when I lived out in the Rockies of Colorado, I owned a 4×4 pick-up truck and would go out in the back country quite often in the summer, through my travels back there, I would come across many buildings like this, for which they were standing tall today, I would stop and walk around these buildings, which would give me a feeling of “awe” as I saw the workmanship that went into buildings, as I saw these buildings and examined them, it gave me a whole new respect for life and an understanding that, no matter how hard I think my life is today, people of this Society back then, had it very much harder as I or even us within this Society today.
When ever you say your life is too hard and you get overwhelmed within it, just do some history homework and learn of this Society back then, go to the Rockies and hike or four wheel through the mountains and see first hand these buildings and a time that hard work was an everyday event. We think we have it hard? But with all the Technology today, this has made our work that much less, Yes there are some that do work very hard at there jobs within their Profession, but you are also getting paid a fee to do the work, back then they received nothing, as they were doing it to provide and make themselves and their family safe, from whatever came across their paths of their journey.
there is a mountain pass in Colorado called Mosquito pass, this travels between Leadville, Colorado and Breckenridge, Colorado, This pass also goes as high as 13,500 feet and it used to be known as the old pony Express, which was how the telegrams were sent back then, to travel this pass you need a four wheel drive vehicle with enough height to go over the obstacles in the way, i traveled this pass and what took me about eight hours to drive, would take the Pony Express about a week to cross, depending on the weather conditions? There is so much to learn of the Societies past and we haven’t even touched the surface of the real true way, that they lived back then. A big reason of why we could care less of these Societies back then, is because we are too busy living our selfish lifestyles now, we think that the World revolves around me and that i am more important than anything/anyone around me? When another person is struggling and getting kicked back in their lives, we look the other way and simply walk right over them, we won’t even stop and raise a helping hand anymore? back then they would stop, help wherever the help was needed and they would actually care of each other back then. The words of God that said, ” love thy neighbor as you would yourself”, these people of that Society really took those words to heart, we today would rather look the other way and walk all over you, especially if it was worth their gain? The simple reason for this ” i don’t care attitude” of today is, we have lost what the feeling of true empathy is. I get the fact that we all have our struggles and that life events happen to us, but so did those of yesterday’s Society and they found the time to help each other, Why should we be any different then them? Life for all of us throughout Mankind have become easier with all the technology we have today, but yet we make it very difficult for each other to coincide with each other today, maybe it’s time to wake up, smell the flowers of life, get back this true feeling of empathy we all have within us, so we all can walk our paths of our journey of life in peace, while we all become better and stronger to get through what ever that may cross our paths.
” once upon a time……. this may be the words that start a fairy tale, but they also can help us move forward in life, if we look back in history, to fix our wrongs then become stronger and better throughout our journey’s”
” Back through time they might of lived a simple life, but it was a life that was no stranger to hard work by all”
