New Born Feet
“Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.” ― Shel Silverstein
Some folks my wife and I know are new grandparents, not unlike millions of folks each day that become grandparents. But it made me think about all of the negative news we inflict upon ourselves. News about one horrible thing or another seem to fill our days.
Politics, disasters, accidents and disagreements are always in high gear. As occurs in other places around the world, desperation and heightened exaggeration abound. The worst will happen if 'such and such' happens, or even worse.
We survive because humans have a great ability to adapt and change. As time passes, there will be disappointment in the type of changes that have occurred. There will be a yearning for what once was. Yet we each know change is inevitable.
- The earth is constantly changing.
- Human intelligence is constantly changing.
- Life as we know it is changing.
There will be bad things that happen, but there will be good things that happen in even greater numbers. New cures for disease will be found. A better understanding of our world and universe will expand. Technology will further amaze and thrill us.
Another baby will be born.
Yes, life will go on in some form or another. So don't buy into all of the great hype of mass destruction and ruin. Our country will not end, the world will not end. It will be different, but you will get through. Hope combined with a positive attitude of greater achievement will overcome despair and negativity.
Stay inspired my friends!
