Our world population is growing and many of us live clustered in large cities. As space between us grows smaller, we learn ways to deal with ever-present sound, light, and smells. Indeed, with global communication, we know almost instantly about events occurring across the world. We can use this powerful tool to unite people with similar goals. Petitions with thousands of names can spring up overnight. Videos of injustices can go viral on social media. Perhaps change starts with one small voice but it’s implemented when people unify in spirit.
Through the media, we also gain a desire to experience new places. We can see the importance of understanding other cultures and get the urge to travel. As we get older, we might see the value in moving with the warmer weather, as many birds do. And if we don’t leave winter weather, we might change some habits, cocoon more readily, eat hearty meals, and accommodate for the outer cold.
Change in environment, understanding new cultures, experiencing new foods – all can lead to a receptivity to change and an openness to new opportunities. When we see that differences can be interesting and fun, instead of frightening, the whole world becomes available.
Has moving been a part of your history?
