The Honest Journey

I usually don't get sentimental until I'm sitting around a camp fire with a can of my favourite frothie. But today I've been reminiscing about the simple things that used to be the everyday Aussie cultural norm. The simple things that seem to have been left by the wayside.

Things like common courtesy. Mateship. Morals. Freedom of speech. Hard work without short cuts.

I'm talking about the honest journey through life that used to be a medal worn with pride. The strong and honourable men and women who may have stumbled at times but made their way through their own efforts, without stepping on anyone else to get ahead.

What the hell is with the 'It's just business' and 'It's not my problem' culture that's filling up the industry these days? And what place does that kind of self centred, egotistical and arrogant culture have in your day to day life or mine?

Absolutely none I hope. 

In the last 3 weeks I have felt betrayed. I have been lied to and you could say dead set shafted. I have had promise after promise repeatedly broken and the sadest part is, it's sounds like I'm not the only one.

Let's stop making a hero out of the cut throat 'businessmen' who save their company a dollar by bankrupting a supplier for a better deal. Let's not idealise the reality tv star with millions of followers and start to understand that they actually have trouble making real friends. 

I want to start a month of Bogan pride. Let's celebrate every hard working, honest, intelligent and generous person out there who has succeeded without screwing over the people around them. Let's cut the crap and get back to the honest journey through life.

Join us on Facebook today and nominate the dinkum and hard working people in your life for the Stealth "Honest Journey" award. The only criteria for entry is that they're not a flaming Gallah or drongo!
