So when does the wisdom kick in?

Just wondering..... Having one of those weeks where I feel like -- ok, I still have ALL the same weaknesses, keep wrestling the SAME demons, keep trying to learn the SAME lessons, over, and over and over.....

I know I'm learning and developing -- at least in my head I know it. But sometimes I'm just not feelin' it. Can anybody relate?

Wurly and proud!

    Yes. I think the vaunted wisdom of experience best applies to others' decisions, and to ourselves, retroactively.

    None of this is in the manual, btw.

    I'm hoping soon. I feel like I have a ways to go. I'm doing things now that 35-year olds are doing, you know? And I haven't done things that 30 year olds have done.

    See, to me you do sound wise! At any rate, you're able to recognize what you're doing. That's more than a lot of people are capable of - or able to admit.

    I find myself just more comfortable with things. I'm more accepting and less expectant. I don't know if it's a factor of age, or of a steady yoga practice or, more likely, a combination of both.

    My wisdom started tapping me on the shoulder at 40... At 41 it introduced itself to me personally. The past 7 years have been the happiest of me from an internal perspective. I will be 48 next month and its STILL getting better!!:toothy10:

    This is the way I feel. I don't feel any wisdom creeping in yet, but I do feel much more accepting and less judgmental of others.
    The smallest deed is greater than the grandest intention.

    Just think I used to worry 'bout things like that,
    Used to worry 'bout rich and skinny, 'til I wound up poor and fat,
    Nowadays I kind of worry where my mind's been at,

    I've always been one of those kids "wise beyond my years"... whatever that meant. But, now that I think about it, I've always tried to apply the good things I've learned and (though I don't have kids of my own), I've been able to help younger ones do the same.

    One thing that's hard to change.... I used to be a lazy kid, now I'm a lazy old lady! :sad3:
