it takes time
At the age of 18, I had the world figured out!
I knew it all
Or at least I thought I did.
I listened to my parents and did not stray far from their teachings. But in my mind...I was GROWN. It was time for me to live the life that I wanted to live. I was in college and I was ready to take the world by storm.
A funny thing happened between 18 and 22...I experienced life. I grew up even more than before. I still thought that I knew it all.
By 30, I had truly experienced so many things that I was in position to REALLY know it all.
As I slide toward my 40th birthday in December, I realize what I should have learned as a teen...what I should have learned at 18...I don't know it all. Life's experiences help mold us into who we are. Through those experiences we gain wisdom. I'm sure you thought you knew it all at one point in time. Just be glad that you got a chance to live long enough to learn more.
