What Happened to Life?
Have you ever wondered what you want to be when you grow up ?
Are we suppose to know what we want to be when we grow up? like when you are 6 years old and the teacher asked you in class.. (insert name) what do you want to be when you grow up? and (insert name) says I want to be a Astronaut, Race Car Driver.. etc..etc.. Well I sure hell don’t know what I still want to be now. Life has so many possibilities and its so dynamic that it changes every now and then. We are a person that has so many factors affecting us everyday in our life decision.
We can plan and arm ourselves with goals and aspiration but things affect us like family, friends, time, strangers, forums and now even worst.. this thing called the “INTERNET” . I can tell you internet is a sure wonder of the world, heck Award it the NOBLE PRIZE for all I know, without it you wouldn’t be able to read this right now. The internet sure has gotten us all up to speed in fact too fast for my liking. Life is not slowing down. People are not spending enough time with their families, children and friends.
I am not sure if you realize this, but I feel that everyone these days are so impatient. On the walking pathway, on the road.. etc..etc.. I do blame this on the connectivity of Internet that we have. Remember how we receive our mails in the past? not electronic for sure but snail mail, wasn’t it a joy when you got your hand written mail to you from your pen pal from another country (do they still have that). These days its just WHAM BAM THANK MA’AM no thanks to Skype, Viber, Tango, Kik, Chat Roulette, Google Voice, Grasshopper, VoXoX, Vbuzzer.. I can go on and on with just VoIP and I have not started with the instant messaging. The art of hand written letters are long gone,
Everything seems so instant, Does the word “Stop and smell the roses” means anything anymore? I see families with many kids but parents that has no time to play with them. I see friends living in the same town but yet only manage to meet up on their BUSINESS trips in other countries. I see neighbors but I don’t see smiles. What’s Happening World ?? really What’s Happening?
Just expressing this feeling I have in my heart, I want to share “The Paradox of Our Age” with you.
So please take some time off, spend it with the people dearest to you, have a good look at them, cherish the moment. What ever hatred you have with them forgive and forget. Life is too short for all the squabble and fights.
Life is not all about making BIG Bucks but rather spending BIG Laughter with your loved one. Do share , reblog , re-tweet , stumbleupon if you agree with “The Paradox of Our Age” some where along the line.
