Age ain’t nothin’ but a number
The picture above is of Maya Angelou, a woman I think is growing old gracefully and embracing the wisdom that comes with it.
Miriam Makeba, South African singer and political activist said:
“Age ain’t nothin’ but a number:” But age is other things, too. It is
wisdom, if one has lived one’s life properly. It is experience and
knowledge. And itis getting to know all the ways the world turns,
so that if you cannot turn the world the way you want, you can at
least get out of the way so you won’t get run over.
During May I am celebrating many birthdays of family and friends. and witnessing them embrace another year of wisdom and hope.
You don’t need to wait for your birthday to embrace this mindset, if you haven’t done already, start today.
Have fun growing older and wiser.
