Sometimes the inspiration of others is phenomenal and as I have always believed "we are here to learn the lessons of this life we were sent here to learn."
Being a Senior Companion "hanging out with old people" has unfolded lessons of inspiration I never really expected.
It seems most seniors have gathered up a basket full of wisdom. Each basket contains slightly different bits and pieces of the puzzle but each piece is part of their life experience and not to be ignored. The brightest light sometimes comes on the darkest day.
A good friend in California shared this bit of wisdom I just read this morning:
"A senior here was celebrating his 101st birthday. He looks about 85 ish. And he's walking on his own! I told him he looked gorgeous. He said his secret to such a vibrant longevity is his motto..'The best is yet to come.'
He's sincerely looking forward to his 102nd birthday. I think he'll make it."
Have you ever heard the statement?: "Everyone has the right to make their own bad decisions." The quote below from one of my favorite artists answers it quite well.
"Mistakes are almost always of a sacred nature. Never try to correct them. On the contrary: rationalize them, understand them thoroughly. After that, it will be possible for you to sublimate them."
