“Time passes so quickly. Minutes are like seconds. Hours fly by in a wink. Responsibilities are inherited, expanded. Your self-image pushes you forward to embrace the challenge. Thinking becomes a luxury. Quick fixes and band-aid solutions become the norm. There is always something to do, somewhere to go, something to be acquired.
Adapt. It becomes increasingly important to be concise. To be clear. To avoid trivialities. However you cannot lose who you are. What motivated you to go where you have gone, and to be who you are today? It likely makes no difference, since who we are, and the motivations that drive us change with us every day. What is important, in fact the only thing that is important, is that you continue to try to be a better you.
There is no better critic of your personal character than you. You think about it. Don’t lie to yourself. It does bother you to see people suffering in one part of the world, while corporations bask in wasteful ignorance in another. It does bother you that most of society is locked into a dependant relationship with such corporations. But the cure for the world’s pain can only come from awareness and education. No one is different from anyone else. Aggression breeds aggression. Tolerance breeds tolerance. Empathy breeds empathy.
Simple things can make a big difference under just the right circumstances. Never give up, but don’t be hard on yourself for not going as far as you would have liked, as fast as you would have liked. Time passes so quickly.”
