Our generation is at the forefront of a media revolution. We reap the benefits of an exponentially growing world and shoulder the burden of future consequences. What will the world be like in 10 years? 20? or in future generations?

That question is up to us to answer. We are the building blocks for the future, and it is up to us to leave either a promising future or one full of problems. We live in a capitolistic society in which everyone is out for their own self benefit, but we must refrain from thinking like that or the future will be full of problems. While those problems won’t effect us, it is shortsighted of us to hand down our unresolved business to future generations.

During our lifetime we are exposed to only a fraction of life’s full experience. Each of us has a unique set of events that shape who we are and how we see the world. In the time that it took to write this post, hundreds of new lives began all over the world. It is up to us to detirmine their experience of the great thing we call life.

So rather than thinking “what is best for me” realize that there are implications for every action. My personal belief has always been that everything happens for a reason. Just think of how many of your current friends you met completely randomly. Who you meet today will detirmine who you are tommorrow and what you do with today will detirmine how bright or dismal your future will be.

We need to adapt to an ever changing world because if we don’t we will be overwhelmed by the exponentially growth of humanity. We cannot see the future, but we can prepare for it.
