I'D LIKE TO BE A BIGGER AND MORE
10 YEARS FROM NOW THAN I AM TODAY.
I THINK THAT, FOR ALL OF US, AS WE GROW OLDER,
WE MUST DISCIPLINE OURSELVES TO CONTINUE
KEEPING OUR MINDS ACTIVE AND OPEN.
The older we get, the more experience we end up having. But how much of that experience is gained simply by default? By going through our days, by being alive?
I admit a lot of what I've learned lately has come from just...being. Somewhere along the line, I began taking a back seat in my pursuit of knowledge. I started sitting in the last row of one of those log flume rides where you get wet just by being on the ride.
No more. I'm sitting in the front row, starting today. I'm choosing the seat. not just plopping into it because it's the only one left, because it's the easiest, the safest. I'm making a concentrated effort to learn and to grow, to challenge myself, to keep my mind active and open.
Care to join me?
