Work life balance is more noticeable here. It’s made me realise to focus even more on my daughter. I always have and always will of course! Today, she invited two friends home from school. They played, enjoyed pizza, danced a little and watched “Mamma Mia”. It’s a lovely “warm fuzzy feeling movie” with nice songs in. Of course I’m a fan of ABBA! It’s nice to have the privilege to arrange proper play dates. Life is not all about work!
It’s interesting how focus on different things shift. In the last 30 years, in particular, I think evolution has been going very fast. By that I mean technology and amongst that social media. For you who remember- what did you do before the mobile phone? Do you remember when you actually had to be at a specific time at a specific place when you decided to meet someone? Do you remember the stationary telephones? In my family, we had those big phones with a round dial application on. I still recall the sound it made when you dialled a number. It’s nice to just reminisce and realise how things have changed; TV, MTV, the Concorde, the evolution of burgers, Internet, Netflix, Amazon, the iPhone and associated Apps and so on… do you recall any specific such items?
Evolution and change… not always a good thing… not always a bad thing. It’s truly something that drives us forward!
