Do you ever wish you could go back to a younger age in life? I’ve heard many people say they wish they were younger but only if they knew then what they know now. What do you know now? Have your learned from your past experiences? Experiences can sting us and teach us not to do that again or positive experiences can motivate us to keep doing what we’re doing. We learn more from our experiences than anything no matter if they’re good or bad. Experiences are our greatest teachers. Oscar Wilde wrote this great quote:
“Experience is the hardest kind of teacher. It gives you the test first and the lesson afterward.”
As I celebrated my 60th birthday this past weekend, I realized something. Why do we wait for that special day to come around once a year to celebrate? We should be celebrating every day like it is our birthday (maybe minus the cake). Oh and be proud of your age. We are all so hung up on looking young, but we need to face the facts that one day we are all going to get old and die. Besides, it’s what’s inside that counts. I still feel as young as when I was in my 30’s, but I must say, I am a lot more wiser now from my life experiences. I believe if you have a positive attitude, you will age gracefully. Life is good; we’re alive and well, so be happy and grateful for every day!
