When we're growing up our parents seem to know everything about everything.
They could never be wrong.
They just knew it all.
Until we realized that they didn't.
Until we realized that they're just like us.
Trying to figure things out.
And when that happened a whole new world opened up to us.
A world full of opportunities.
A world that we can shape.
Now of course at first our world world was shattered.
But that's the only way to start building something new.
To destroy the old.
And to create something new.
By combining the old with the new.
Unfortunately, somewhere along the road we've lost that insight again.
The insight that the world is full of opportunities.
That we can shape it.
And create it.
And influence it.
And instead the world turns into something that just is.
Something that can not be changed.
Where things are just the way they are.
Where everything is fixed.
Where gatekeepers control everything.
Which of course is a lie.
It's the same lie we've believed in when we thought that our parents knew it all.
The same lie our kids probably now believe in/will believe in.
Until they realize we're just like them...
