Everything is evolving. This includes us. You and I, and everyone else will be different at bedtime from how we were on waking this morning.

Change is inevitable, even if routine and sameness disguise this to some extent. Doing repetitive tasks the same way over and over means we don’t have to relearn them each time. The downside is that we tend to drift towards mindlessness. Doing things by rote prevents us from examining how we go about them and tends towards drudgery.

Paying attention to how we go about things brings benefits. Being mindful promotes curiosity and interest, and distracts us from dodgy pastimes like anxiety and frustration. Occasionally experiment brings improvement. At the very least it provides interest that can lift our spirits, and possibly we’ll learn something new or grow a bit because we find we can abandon something old and outdated.

In the sense that I’m using it here, evolving means growth. Revolving on the other hand means going round in circles.
