For some of us, change is a nasty word. There are those who change with every other breath because what they desire hasn't happened. And then there are some of us who change when nothing else appears to be working. Yet in my lifetime, the changes in some arenas of life have been without measure. Just think, we can now carry our phones around with us. Not only that, our phone can take our picture or even a video.
We have young people today that don't know anything but a hand held device. Change is instanteous. If that screen doesn't open fast enough we become upset! However these changes come with consequences. What is your attention span these days? How long can you wait before your blood begins to boil? Do you skim through data, or do you read book or complete a whole magazine?
This type of change brings the expectation of even more change. But how do we process change? Is it gleeful abandon or with greater fear or maybe even anger?
The other change we all experience is that of aging. When you are young, change just doesn't happen soon enough. Today lasts forever. Minutes drag on as if they are hours. With each year completed, our view of time changes. The energy of change really isn't stable. For some, the need for stability causes their views to resist change. We are living in such a time. The change started at the ending of World War II.
What change will we mirror in our daily life? How will our life look in 10 years, compared to 10 years ago? What change will you embrace around your aging process?
