There’s a saying that some people mellow with time. Or that as you age, you become wiser beyond your years. Some call it experience. Others call it reconciliation with life.
Growing older should slap us with more sense of responsibility in our lives. These petty dramas must come to a halt. And we need to make sense of learning to grow up instead of being pinned in so much petty squabbles. It’s sad to see some adults still lacking the maturity that comes with age.
David Bowie says it bluntly when he points out that
Aging is an extraordinary process where you become the person you always should have been.
Sometimes life isn’t fair. And there are lemons thrown our way. There are situations that make it difficult for some of us to realize that we mature with the damage, not with the years.
Through our life journey, we need to remember that it is important to do your best, place your best foot forward, and try to be an honest person.
As they say,
Change is inevitable. But personal growth is a choice.
We all need to age gracefully. Time, after all, has been our faithful companion.
