13 Days of Meditation- Day 8- A Sign of Age is Growth, Not Age Itself

Don’t let others look down on you because of your age.

Show them through love, experience, growth, wisdom and love that you are who you are.

People can say they are a certain age, but it does not mean they grew from their age-old experiences. 

While, someone who is 18 could be 100 years old in spirit because they chose to learn valuable lessons from their 18 years on earth.

Keep learning, keep thirsting for more in life because that is what signifies true growth.

I will keep today short since I have to go to a real estate training early in the morning. I wrote this blog entry because people are often shocked when they hear me speak at events. They are shocked that I am so wise for my age. Like I said, if you don’t learn from your experiences, then those years of experiences mean nothing. Take hold of your experiences and let them be your mentors of growth. Growing up, often left alone to play, I had to observe the world. I was constantly observing people, elders, other peers…

I learned from my own experiences, but also from others. I learned from my older sibling, what not to do, what to do…I learned from my parents, I learned from my teachers and mentors. I avoided the bad choices other people made. 

How about you? How has experiences in life made you stronger, wiser, smarter?
