Some people try to
turn back their odometers.
Not me, I want people to know
why I look this way.
I’ve traveled a long way and
some of the roads weren’t paved.

Our society tends to obsess over youth and as a result many people feel discouraged about growing older. While we certainly benefit from the enthusiasm and fresh perspective of young minds, it is also true that we can benefit tremendously from wisdom and experience. It takes many years for an individual to acquire a decent amount of useful information and another 3 or 4 decades to amass a trove of lived experiences that will help distill the information into wisdom. Every day you get older is another set of experiences and hopefully some more new information. Trust me, these will prove immensely valuable for you and the people around you!
