Oh, How Things Can Change

There's a corny quote from Ferris Bueller that goes something like this, "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around every once and a while, you just might miss it." Corny, but true. It's amazing how much life can change. Sometimes, we have a quiet period, when nothing changes that drastically, but other times, it's just the opposite. If you're a recent college grad like me, just stop for a second and think back to a year ago. How different was your life?

Personally, I've had a lot of stuff going on in the past year, and there are times when it's hard to remember what life used to be like. I wish I'd looked around and appreciated some things more. We always look at what other people are going through and feel happy or sad for them, but we never think it will happen to us. It's not just teenagers who think they are invincible. And even those who are older and wiser, and scoff at the thought of being compared to a teen, probably take things for granted more than they realize.

We're all busy people. We have work, families, friends, and countless activities, but this doesn't mean that we're too busy to look around and appreciate what we have. So, just take a few seconds, because you never know when things will change.
