Various types of people enter and exit our life. Some stay throughout too.
One of all those types are the old people.
War stories, love stories, stories of miracles. Old people are full of them.
And stories are the lifeblood of the human race, linking us all together.
These golden people have seen the rusty, dusty and smooth sides of life, and they advise and teach us. One day you would too.
I try to apply the below which I was advised and taught by many golden personalities who crossed my path:
It is okay to pause/stop.
Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
And give time, to time.
The older a person gets, the less of a damn they give about what other people think. It’s a skill worth studying.
Your children get only one childhood. Make it memorable.
If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.
Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.
The more a person sees of the world, the more they come to realize how varied are the people who live in it, and to accept their differences
If you don't ask, you don't get.
The more of the rest of the world you see, the less important you consider yourself.
Because the longer you live, the more reasons you find to be grateful for your life. So be grateful for yours.
