By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest. ~Confucius
Time will deliver if you’re listening, incredible wisdom.
It’s easy to dismiss life experience for the more “attractive” energy of youth. After all, who doesn’t love youth’s exuberance, youth’s drive and passion, youth’s innocent ambition.
Youth and inexperience lack the ugly battle scars of difficult times, of failures, and disappointments.
There is incredible beauty in those scars, the beauty that can only be earned through perseverance. It can never be purchased, or gotten through clever shortcuts. It can only be earned, with hard fought victories over blood sweat and tears.
Embrace it, own it, and share it.

Take joy in the passing of time, wisdom and memories.
