ch ch ch changes

Right now I'm struck by how much the world is constantly changing.

And I don't mean in other countries, or the ebb and flow of politics, or basically any world other than the one that revolves around me and the concerns of my loved ones. As Mark Twain once said, "If you don't like the weather in New England, just wait a few minutes."

I feel like that's my life, and the lives of all the people I know right now. Don't like your life at the moment? Wait 15 minutes, or 15 days, and it's bound to change. My older brother just got a new job - and that's a very exciting change. My little brother just got his license - another exciting change. My friend Lisa got a job that she's been hoping for. Another friend got a preliminary acceptance to his dream school. I know a girl who just met a cool guy. I have friends waiting on jobs, the opposite sex, grades, hopes, dreams.

Around me, everything is changing. The world isn't apathetic, and I dare anyone who says so to just open their eyes. There are people, who, on the surface, they seem to be doing nothing special. Take your bouncer at the bar. Or you know, my favorite bouncer at my favorite bar. You may look at him, and you think "This is his job." Little do you know that his dream is to help the impoverished and disadvantaged - those who feel little hope. And it's not just his dream, he's taking steps to get there. And there are people just like him, working their asses off to make things happen.

So if you don't like your life right now? Plant some seeds, work hard, and watch for the results in just a few minutes.

So...what kind of seeds did you plant? or is that the new bed talking?
glad to see you're so upbeat!
"My little brother just got his license"

This is solid advice, Meg.
