Youth is the gift of nature,
while age is
a work of art.
Stanislaw Jerzy Lec
As my highschool senior counts the days to flying the nest, I count nuggets of wisdom that might be useful to our younger self in the journey through less than sunny weather. A few favorites from and additions to Andrea Reiser’s list “47 Things I’ve Learned In My 40’s:”
Happiness has different faces. Gratitude is a choice.
Stop comparing your insides to everyone else’s outsides.
Laugh lines are worth it. Don’t waste a day without laughter.
Our body obsessions are invisible to others–until we point them out so Ssssshhh!
Experiences are infinitely more memorable than stuff.
Busy is overrated.
Take one day at a time, one step at a time, one breath at a time.
You can disagree with someone, but it doesn’t mean they’re wrong.
Being right is overrated.
Everything happens for a good reason, no matter how unclear that good reason may be for awhile.
Take a risk and seize the opportunity, it may never present itself again.
And as this Powerful Goddess reminds me “I AM ENOUGH!” to bloom where I’m planted, whatever the age, no matter the weather.
