The Canadian Dream

Didn't think there was one, but I figured it out.

Ok.. I'm probably wrong, and rightfully so... but the American dream... they way I see it is,  based around freedoms to live large, and die happy.  Living the American dream is like being on top of the world, and no one else can take that away from you.  Power and freedom. I guess... not American so I don't know.


But I discovered that the Canadian dream is much more simple.  If you escaped the hussle and bussle of every day life, you're living the Canadian dream.  If you have the time to stop and smell the roses, you are living the Canadian dream.   If you are at a part of your life where you have everything you need, are sound, and happy, that's what it's all about.  

I sometimes watch a lot of TV, and every now and then I hear people talking about the Canadian dream.. and they're usually outdoors roughing it.  Those people aren't ever worrying about their things, opposed to their experience. And you know, that's exactly what I want.  I want to be able to simply enjoy nature every day. To not worry about all the things we intentionally bring into our lives for happiness and convenience that only come to complicate it.   Stress free existence..... that's the Canadian dream.
