You know the old saying, “When I was a kid things were a lot different”. Yes they were, but also the same as well. People are just people and they tend to act the same no matter the generation that they come from. The only thing that I see that has changed in the last of my 48 years orbiting on this planet is the way people are relating to each other.
The internet, cellphone, computers and the like have fundamentally changed communication styles forever. The younger generation of people coming up now don’t remember anything else. They embrace things as they are, just like we all did growing up. I have embraced and will continue to embrace the technological change that is sweeping the world.
It is not a matter of keeping up with the ‘next generation’. I find the experience of learning and growing pleasurable. I am never going to be one of those that is stuck in the mud, reminiscing about the ‘good old days’.
Guess what, most of those days were not as good as you remember. Live in the now, be part of the change that is transforming the world, walk happily into the future. Everything is changing, the weather, religious beliefs, thought patterns etc. Why would you want to stay the same as you were 1,5, or even 10 years ago?
Stretch your self and try something new. For some it might be texting or a blog or digital music who knows?
