In the 1980s classic film, Back to the Future, Marty McFly (played by Michael J. Fox) gets the rare opportunity to see what life was like back in 1955. Compared to today, it certainly seems like a simpler time. There were no reality TV shows, no Internet, no coffee pods, and the media wasn’t present in every single aspect of our lives, warning us of imminent danger ahead for our kids, for our money, and for our very futures.
There are many people who think, “Why couldn’t I have lived back in simpler times? Why do I have to live waiting for the next big economic crash?” This type of thinking doesn’t do anybody any good. Instead, consider this: You were born and are living in the precise time you are supposed to be living.
