Change is in the air. Everyone is talking about what it means for America and the world to change but what is the essence of change? Historically change summoned in events that moved political and family systems that created new ways of communicating and living.
Most of the time change is good but painful. It draws out the best and worst in our inner voice.
We are a compilation of our life events and experiences and you can only hope that whatever you have become has benefited your self and others. Textually change means to make different or alter and the process or condition of changing. I like the latter. No matter what decade and we happen to be living in a high tech world, so change will always be a process or condition that we shape, create, embrace and move to action. The forming of ideas to create a transformation of beliefs that us humans can then connect to and communicate effectively with each other. I think that change in the past has always centered on losing something, a loss or some type of eruption that brings chaos. I believe defining change in our current decade is to mature our definition to mean drawing upon our experiences and uncertainties and processing those experiences with the future visions that make note of the voices of those very political systems, families, climate, communities and the rising ideas of a global environment that push us forward into action. It is a more open and inclusive approach where we reach out not only from our own perspective but from a rising of inner voices.
