Youth is a time of exuberance and exploration while its father and mother becomes reflective contemplation. Yes, I want to admit that I’ve noticed through life that getting old is no fun and our cultures promote youth and physical beauty way too much because there is money to made; the keeping youthful and fit or good looking business paradigm is a lucrative industry, and who after all wants to lose their life or newness!
But, I’ve also learned this world is a failing one with nothing escaping the ravages of time and decay, so what is there to gain in trying to hang onto this world beyond an expiration date? No I won’t eat meat, cheese or vegetables that have exceeded their removal date and I won’t expect my own life or its current capabilities to go much beyond its built in longevity; all of which teaches me that it’s not how long we are here but how well we live while we can and what we leave as our lasting legacy to others; because what matters most for any of us is if we made some positive difference, and that our true prize awaits us in eternity!
I hope to see you all there, so make this present life be one of honor, integrity, quality and love!
