Every time in life feels like a different time to previous life. I mean, why shouldn’t it? Your cells are all being replaced so quickly that you are physically quite a different being.
This doesn’t explain why our mentality changes so much though. Or why we consider ourselves in such a unique and different position to what we were in before.
I would consider this to be a beautiful notion of life that allows us to keep enjoying things even if our situation has changed very little, or not at all. Which, let’s face it, is a far easier outcome to end up with than any of us would be willing to admit.
To dream by night is to escape your life. To dream by day is to make it happen – Stephen Richards
