It's full of flowers and heart shaped boxes

"The book of love is long and boring. No one can lift the damn thing. It's full of charts and facts and figures and instructions for dancing"  - Gavin James

When things are chancing and we all struggle to fit in, we long for the old times. At work we had a new years eve meeting. Our boss did a speech. Usually speeches are long and boring and are written formally.  This one was inspiring and gave you stuff to think about.
I wish I could read the exact words, but I couldn't find them. It do my best to explain the words he said.

We Europeans like to work for our future. We love to make money and spend it as well. We live like we're never going to die. We're not living in the present and when we're getting sick, we change our habits for a few weeks, maybe months, but afterwards we're getting back to our old routine.

We're working hard and we hope to get a house, tv, travel, ... one day. But sometimes it is better to forget what you want and be happy with what you have. This is, of course, easier said than done. Society gives a certain pressure of having all those things. It's 'normal' to have a house, having children,...

I love to think about all those things. I try to ban the media by watching television as little as possible, don't answer my phone for a couple of hours,etc.

What do you think about this speech?
