Lesson #2: With Age Comes Wisdom; It Is a Blessing To Get Older

Fear of Aging

I was afraid of getting older about ten years ago. I was afraid of the grey hairs, the wrinkles, the arthritis, menopause, the hormone belly, the loss of pep in my step, and so much more. I was afraid of having to slow down due to getting older.

Let me tell you something. Not anymore!!! Lol. NO sir, NO ma’am! This virus and all of these diseases and sickness have made me have a change of heart and thought! Now, I am becoming more thankful for everything with each passing day. Grey hair, hormone changes and all.

Time Brings About Change

I didn’t have the best temper (especially if someone just couldn’t catch a hint to stop pushing my buttons), I spoke exactly what was on my mind ( I felt it was a sign of weakness not to do so at the time), and I wanted everything in my life to be perfect. Again, let me tell you guys something: all of that has changed now. I learned that there are things that I have control over and there are things that I seriously do not have control over. Violence doesn’t change anything and neither does ignorance. Well, they can but they won’t solve anything.

Now I try to approach every situation with careful thought about the consequences of my actions. I can’t say that I have mastered every type of situation but I can say I give it my best and that’s all that a person can really do. Making a conscience effort to do the right thing according to knowledge is a good thing. It is the moral thing to do no matter how people view you for it. There is a time and place for everything and everything should be done decently and in order. If I can’t do it decently and in order, it’s gonna hurt me in the long run and if it is going to hurt me in the long run, why waste my time on it or with it? I’m at the age and point in my life where I want benefits. Moral benefits. I want to reap good things. I want good karma if you will. I want a good reputation. I want people who can’t even stand me to at least be able to admit that I am the type of person who is willing to respect what is right; to do the right thing no matter what. Some of the greatest people in the world who have been here, did those things.

Qualities To Inspire To Achieve

Humility is attractive. Morals are alluring. Wisdom is a treasure. A conscience is necessary. Self-Control is inspiring. I want that. I want to cultivate that in my heart and mind and put them into action perfectly with each passing day. I like being different like this. Every time that I am nice to someone who is mean to me, every time I help someone who didn’t show me the same kindness and every time that I think before I speak or react, I have been noticing how the lord is blessing me. Seriously, things that people said I wouldn’t be able to do, it happens. things they said that I couldn’t get, I get it. I watch them sit or stand with their jaws dropped with just a touch of jealousy and that is enough for me because that means they can’t deny that I am doing something right lol. God has a way of evening things out. Trust me.
