Chances are if you are reading this, you’ve got it pretty good. Do you know where your next meal is coming from? Likely you do. There are many of us who aren’t as fortunate.
On top of this, we live in a culture where there is limitless access to every kind of food on this planet. Statistics show that we waste 14% of everything we bring home to our kitchens.
Many experts say we could feed the world simply by reducing our meat consumption by just 10%.
There are many ways you can do ‘live on less’ (and no I am not suggesting you become a monk!), and fasting is just one of them. By going without and seeing how that translates into something for another in need, could just be enough to start the ball rolling.
Fasting means simply: ‘to abstain’.
You can abstain from anything! Want to quit smoking? Fast from smoking. Coffee? That extra latte you want to cut out? Go ahead – that’s the idea.
By going without you can not only do yourself a favor, but by giving what you gave up to someone less fortunate, you win twice.
I think that’s pretty great, and that is why I started this project.
Regardless of why you choose to fast, do it carefully, and remember those who have less than you. They are the ones who don’t have the choice to go without.
So go ahead and enjoy your blessings.
Less becomes more when you want it to, and there is no time like today to start the challenge!
