I've been doing some thinking today... and I am constantly amazed by the world we live in.
Starting from the years before 2000, we could click a button, and turn on a device that allowed us to view content from across the country. (The TV)
This technology evolved into computers, which have radically transformed every aspect of our lives. The 2000s was a crazy decade to grow up in, and the 2010s have been just as crazy. We as a race are evolving so quickly through our inventions. We can now communicate with others from around the world in real time. Developing, planning, projecting... even doing. We can build entire projects simply from our computers. We can send a message across the world and get a response in mere seconds.
It blows my mind. And that is just the simple stuff!
Going to more 2010s and beyond, we can now have many things delivered straight to our front door. From food, through services like BlueApron and UberEats, to products we need in everyday life, from Amazon. We can even crowdfund and crowdsource development of projects like videogames and movies, and even provide services for each other, complete strangers, such as driving and delivery.
And the world continues to evolve. We have so many people now, all thinking, all creating. All with needs, wants, dreams, and desires. Everyone still trying to find their place in the world.
To all those people, I say, good luck. Find your voice, your place, and then rise above it. Become better than you could have ever dreamed, and do your part in leaving the world in a better place than you found it.
I like to think that I do that, but I'm always afraid or nervous that I'm not doing enough. I try to be there for as many people as I can be. But I always feel like it is not enough.
Thank you all, as well. We've all already played a part in each other's lives without really taking a second to think about it.
