Yes, everything changes as our needs, priorities keep changing from time to time so also our outlook towards life. I think there is a 100% change. As children we have rebelled against our parents, and now when our children do the same, we r unable to accept it. When younger, I used to wonder why elders drive/ride so slowly, now so many youngsters overtake us and we just let go. I know what must be crossing their minds at that point of time.

TIME is a healer. TIME is and agent for change. TIME replenishies and TIME weras away. The years of experiences and the infulences and experiments faced by one do have their impact on onself and their surroundings. Sometimes for the good and sometimes for bad. After all this is what is LIFE.
