Participation…the action of taking part in something………..To consume…..is to expend by use.(Google) 

I Heard the expression ” I want to be a participant in life not a consumer ” when watching an art documentary this week . This got me thinking about all aspects of our lives.

Do we participate in life or do we go around consuming everything we need.

Think about this in how we approach our food. Do we grow any of it, make food from scratch ie jam, relishes, pizza etc?  or just purchase instant pre-Made fast foods with out a lot thought.

What about clothing do we sew some of our clothes, recycle some into something else? Or choose to buy some that have been individually made at a market by an artisan.

What is  your approach  to life-  consume and buy ,buy ,buy or take time to think about what you do , what can you  make or recycle or reinvent or reuse before just going out and consuming !

Participate in life …..enjoy the process ……stop and think before running out to consume !
