Does your neighborhood look like it did a year ago or even five years ago? How often do you pay attention to your surroundings? Sometimes. Barely. Never. Our world is rapidly changing, things aren’t like they used to be, so we can’t get too comfortable with modern conveniences.
- With fashion….what comes around will always be back in style.
- With technology…remember the typewriter?
- With science…there have been so many advances in medicine.
Yet, as human beings, emotional connections will always be with us like: smiling when you hear the laughter of a child; the pain you feel at the loss of a loved one; the joy at the birth of a baby or the heart-break at the end of a relationship. People are people, no matter how time changes. It’s okay to go out of your way to help a stranger and don’t be shy to share a friendly smile with someone while standing in line or calling a friend just to say, “I’m thinking of you.” Simple human interactions can positively change someone’s life and that’s something, I hope, will never change.
All the best,
