I learnt a new word today – Avarice or in other words, extreme greed for wealth or material gains.
I was listening to some really interesting pod-casts by Stephen Fry on the Seven Deadly sins. Greed, being the topic of the 2nd episode. Not greed as associated with food but for material possessions or extreme wealth.
With social media and fake news it is hard to know what to believe and what to attain to, to live a life that is rich with meaning and satisfaction. What we see and hear all around us is how we should look, sound, dress, maintain the ideal weight without life passing us by whilst we try to achieve it.
So Avarice is a new word for my vocabulary but not one I hope that will steer my course through life.
