With Age Comes Wisdom


When you are young, you are foolish! I know that is such a bold statement but with age comes growth whether it be intellectual, physical, emotional or mental. The less experienced you are the more likely you are to do insensible things.

I can confidently say when I was young I was naive. I thank God, that I am not who I use to be. Growing up I had such a strong personality and in order to defend myself in certain situations I would resort to fighting. I would talk back and get out of character to prove a point to people who didn’t matter.

What made it worse, is that standing up for myself was all that mattered to me. If you look back on your life from 10 years ago and can say the same things that mattered then matters now then I will say that you have a lot of growing up to do.

A year from now I may look back and make a mockery out of something I did today, but that’s the beauty of life. If you are not learning something new everyday then you are not living within your full potential. Albert Einstein, once said “Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death”.
