How do you know

How do geese know when to fly to the sun? Who tells them the seasons? How do we, humans know when it is time to move on? As with the migrant birds, so surely with us, there is a voice within if only we would listen to it, that tells us certainly when to go forth into the unknown. 
~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Go forward into your future.

Re-evaluate Again??

Reevaluate – access, determine the significance or worth.
Reset - to clear any pending errors or events to bring the system to normal condition.
Renew  - to make something new, fresh or strong again.

Anymore, it seems I’m in a constant state of evaluating and modification: Modification to my surroundings, modification to my attitudes, gathering more information to find if there is a way to improve the situation.

One of my advisors says that it’s for spiritual growth that we must continue to change. Another of my advisors says that the world has changed so all we can do is adapt.

So I set out to learn more... In a new writing class and hear the same thing that was said to me, said to a new generation. I’m not so inclined to believe everything but I am looking for the jewel that may change past experience into a better brighter future, not just for me but for everyone.

Despite all the hits I’ve taken in life I really am an idealist at heart. More than a decade into the 21st century, I’m seriously disappointed with the state of affairs. My little bit of the world has progressed in a most delightful way but as is the human condition, I want things better and even more progressive to a happier, more peaceful place rather than the apocalyptic zombie land that invades our collective consciousness.

So I’m back to reassess, reset, renew...Solid Happiness Continues...
