Wow, that’s a big question, but I’ll give it a shot. First, just because something is new, it doesn’t mean it’s better. Conversely, just because it’s something we’ve done for a long time, it doesn’t mean it’s better.
Second, we don’t demand the right things from ourselves. After working for 35 years and raising two children, it always seemed there wasn’t enough time to do much else, but I firmly believe that we are put on this earth to help each other. Visit an older adult, send a cake to a grieving family, cook a meal when someone is sick, anything really as long as you reach out and try to make your little corner of the world better.
The third thing I’ve learned is that you can be too politically correct. I think we need to use a little common sense here.
Fourth, don’t compare yourself to others. Be glad that you are you and value yourself accordingly.
And last of all, it’s way too hard to hold grudges and hatred in your heart. Just let things go and enjoy the beauty of the world around you, both in manmade objects or nature.
