Someone asked me, “Do people change?”
I had to say I think we do. I think we grow in some way — we become more of who we are and more of what we do. We just don’t notice change because it happens so naturally and so slowly.
It seems a very human quality that we get used to our lives. We’re busy working, talking care of things. We don’t notice how we grow and change over time.
It’s not until someone say’s “Hey, remember when . . .” that I stop to think Whoa yeah, I’ve learned so much since then.
I’m kind of like that about people too. I forget what my life was like before I knew the folks I care about or what I saw when I first met them that made me want to meet them a second time.
So once in while, I imagine that I’m meeting everyone for the very first time. Suddenly I see all of the reasons, I wanted these people in my life.
