I was born at the right time

I was born and raised in a time when it was common for students in schools to learn and not to socialize; when after school books were more appealing than phones, because the latter simply did not exist. Therefore, talking was much more common than scrolling.

I was born when we did not live in excess of things and grew up being taught to appreciate what I have – maybe that’s why I still prefer moderation and minimalism today; I don’t really need to have everything to fill a banal void somewhere deep inside.

I am grateful that we are living in times when information and knowledge are not exclusive privileges; at a time when stereotypes and roles are disappearing. I am grateful that we are living in times when information and knowledge are not exclusive privileges; at a time when stereotypes, frames, and roles are disappearing.

And what I am most excited about is that today I am living in a world where we are learning to talk about sensitive issues and expressing our feelings, we are learning to openly accept each other’s differences, and finally, we are no longer afraid of being imperfect.

I know you could list me a dozen reasons why these times are not so great. I know that things are happening in the world that leads to the abyss in small steps. I know it. But I do believe that looking at inspirational, positive, delightful things can go beyond sad complaining, gray hair counting or trying to predict a bad promising future.

After all, this positive energy is the one that leads to change. The change at the beginning of which we are ourselves. In small steps. Sincerely. Consciously.

So yes, it really does look like this to me – I was born neither too early nor too late. I was born at the right time.
