Everyone needs a break in life. It is tough to get one in a busy world. Sometime ago, yours truly was watching a documentary on AlJazeera channel. It showed an optimistic story coming from Greece. As readers would remember the dire economical and financial condition that Greece was in, not too long ago.
The economic recession forced Greece to agree to the austerity measure laid out by the Germany-led European Union. This austerity measures forced Greece into a big spending freeze mode, affecting lots of jobs and creating undue hardships to many professionals. It was plain dejection for many of them, especially the ones that had high paying, high profile white collared jobs.
But just as every tale has an outcome just like the attitude of the people who responded to adversities, this tale was no different. Many of them went back to their hometown far from the cities and revisited the footsteps of their ancestors by doing the best what one can do in life- farming. They went back, tilled the land and many of them enjoyed a bountiful harvest. Free from pollution, the hectic and compromising lifestyle of modern city living, they charted out a well-tested, sustainable solution to their dreams, goals and aspirations; which became defined in adversity, in a totally new manner.
