There are days when I see those young twenty-year-olds walking down the street and I long to be their age again. I would be lying if I said that sometimes I wish for less wrinkles, and more taut, glowing skin. But honestly, when I realize that wonderful skin would come with less wisdom and without the crucial life lessons that come from aging I have learned while the wrinkles were forming, I wouldn’t go back to my 20s for anything in the world.
I have developed so many strengths, and experienced so many amazing things since then, it is worth the fine lines on my face and the gray hair that I will cover up until the day I die.
However, there are days when I feel less than thrilled to be me, and I need to be reminded of how blessed I am. So I have created a list of habits we learn with age, to ward off those kinds of days. I hope you find them helpful and maybe they can help you when you forget just how amazing and wonderful you are.
