I never gave much thought about getting old. Oh, I remember thinking 25 was old -- oh how foolish - right? I remember hearing my mother's friend complain about being 45 and I thought I never want to get that old. Guess what? I am that old. In fact, I passed that number awhile back.
Isn't it funny though. I don't feel any older now than I did years ago. Oh, I have more aches and pains, but mentally, I feel the same. I still like alot of the same things. I still feel like I can do what I used to do. Too bad my body doesn't always agree.
I remember hearing people say you gain wisdom as you age. Well, I must have missed the boat because I don't feel any wiser. But when my granddaughter asks me questions, I can draw on experience to answer her. Sometimes I even find great answers. Whatever I say, she looks at me like I'm so smart so maybe wisdom is something you acquire and don't even realize it.
I have to admit, each day brings new experiences. These experiences are determined by the decisions I make. Perhaps that's how we gain wisdom -- learning from our past experiences, and at my age, I've had alot of past experience.
What do you think -- what has brought you wisdom?
