Times--They are A-changing

It is no longer life as your grandparents knew it. It is not even life as hour parents knew it. You live on a planet that is now frantic with technologies, frenetic with challenges, and filled with inconsistencies and instability. Some technologies are helpful; some not so much. Inconsistencies and instability? Just watch the news if you dare keeping doing that to our brain and emotions. Your brain is exposed to and receives thousands of times more information and stimuli than brains received only a scant generation ago. Unless you are vigilant, the ever-increasing stimuli your brain receives can push its functions off balance. It has been said that if you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life. Yeah, maybe, but only if you keep your life in balance. If you don’t, you may end up hating what you once loved. No one is immune to burnout. It can creep up on you stealthily, especially when you keep adding tasks and activities without dropping others. Live in balance. Down the line that can help you avoid lamenting that you forgot to ‘smell the roses’ or failed to spend quality time with good friends and family, or spent way too much time on the job.
