I was looking through some of my saved videos on my YouTube account when I happened upon Ric Ocasek’s Emotion in Motion:
Hearing this song, which came out in my early teen years, instantly brought me back to thoughts of the past (of course I think the Cars were a fantastic band – I for one enjoyed their odd songs). In many ways I miss the simplicity of the past – or at least what appeared to be the simplicity of the past.
What actually is going on is that back then, I did not have to worry about adult issues – not only not worrying about my personal issues such as my own budget, financial planning, cost of living etc, but also not worrying national economic problems and global wars on terror and such! Life wasn’t simple back then, just my view of life as a 13 year old.
Are things more messed up now than they were in the 1980’s? Perhaps who can say – it sure seems like they are. However, there are always options for those who think – and even though now requires more thinking than perhaps was required in the past (the stock market rose nicely from 1982-2000 with only a couple of hiccups for example), there are solutions. I promise my clients that I will constantly look, think, and stay open-minded to solutions to challenges no matter where the idea comes from or how unorthodox (or orthodox) it may seem. Let’s go conquer the future together!
