What will be the legacy of the trends we adopt?
Will they enhance humankind or finish us off?
With “The Floss”, will hip replacement surgery soar,
Or strengthen the muscles in our arms, legs and core?
Will “UGG Boots” cause a rise in ankle weakness,
Or keep us walking on clouds, exuding sweetness?
Wish I could peek at the future, to see their effects,
Witnessing ripples of the crazes, we choose to accept.

Another random thought that leapt out of my ever-racing, inquisitive mind, but one with a huge scope for ponderation. Think about how many fads and trends it could be applied to! …things that we adopted recently, several year ago or decades ago, that we are now paying for, or benefitting from, or might do down the line.
Like I for instance, am now paying for my unwise childhood decision to beatbox with my teeth (using them in a percussive manner), unknowingly removing some of my tooth enamel and giving me sensitive teeth and gums for life (unless I get platinum grills, that is), what a thought!
I also thankfully got the Exercise Bug at about the age of 13, which has stayed with me for life and accounts for my high metabolism; generally good health; and energy to embrace life with verve.
Can you think of any trends and effects that apply to yourself? Can you think of any potential future or general cause and effect links? I’d love to hear them!
Love and Respect always,
