Thanks to our “friend” (and I use that term very loosely), Mr. Zuckerberg, we get quite often reminded of things that happened it in the past. Some of it is hilarious – I was going to throw some examples in – but I don’t think my kids would like that.
Some of them are just, “Oh I remember when we did that!” Some of them are not so fun – “Wow, it’s been 5 years since I broke my finger?’ (I think it’s actually closer to 9 years.) Or “man, did you see how much hair I had 11 years ago?”
And then there are the thoughtful pieces. If we’ve been hanging out on here for a while, you know what I’m talking about – the pieces that are designed to make you think. There are people out there who get a lot of attention – way more than I do. Jen Hatmaker Bob Goff, John Pavlowvitz, Benjamin Watson, Brandon at Hony, Nicholas Kristoff, just to mention a few. They write and people pay attention.
Recently, due to Facebook’s “memories” I came across some writing that I did about this time of year in 2014. 6 years ago – has anything changed? So I read through what I wrote and oh my…….
There’s a lot of changes and looking back on it, I think there’s a lot more we can learn from what has transpired since then. I’ve spent a number of hours this morning reading through what I wrote then and there’s a lot more big and small issues that need to be given a closer look to hopefully better understand what’s going on since then and now.
I’m working on rewriting, updating and refocusing those pieces based on what changes have happened since then.
I hope you’ll join me for the walk through these times. I think we will all understand what is happening right now. So, join me.
Hope to hear from you on it as well.
