One of philosophy professors use to say that philosophy was everywhere, it was life and our questions, answers and wonders about it. She said this was clear in tv shows and movies. At first, I didn’t really get it and then I started paying attention. Lately, I’ve been a bit obsessed with Grey’s Anatomy. The plot line is great, the actors are amazing and the writing is beyond incredible. Yet, by far my obsession with the show has come about from the life lessons sprinkled in between the beginning and ending of each episode. This one in particular stuck out to me, for there’s a brutal truth within these words. In life, nothing is promised except for change and death. Now this sounds a bit morbid but it’s actually all about how we choose to look at it. See the world, is an ever spinning sphere of life and if we try to force it to stay the way it was we only succeed in missing the wonders happening around us. Change is terrifying. Especially if we didn’t except for it to occur. It has a way of shaking us to our core and making us rethink all that we have known to be true but it’s the only way to live. We can’t stay frozen in place because time waits for no one. It ticks away claiming bits of our lives as it goes and it’s up to us to come along for the ride. Don’t get so caught up in what has been that you miss what is. There is a world of possibility waiting to unfold around you but you have to make the choice to take that first step and explore.
