With AGE comes life

“Aging is not lost youth but a new stage of opportunity and strength.” ~ Betty Friedan

 

As I have gotten older, I start to reminisce on the many teachings and wisdom my grandmother use to provide me with. Our daily talks were my proverbs for life. She spoke the truth even if I was not listening to her at that exact moment. You would know she done conversing with you because she would say, “If I am dead or alive, you will remember what I am telling you on this day”.

From the day my grandmother passed to now, I am reliving and seeing her proverbs come to life. I was just amazed at how true and thorough everything she spoke on was. I have matured in many ways since her death and it is for the better. But, now its is up to me to implement, her teachings and instill them in my younger siblings.

Maturing in to a beautiful young woman, has been a journey. And a journey that has many chapters and a long paper trail. As a child, you never want to grow, the troubles of the world don’t bother nor do you care about them. Because life is life and it is meant to be enjoyed.

Who would have ever thought that I would love to be in my little corner and focus on what is ahead of me. Growing up, I participated in a number of things and experienced LIFE, VERY FAST. It was unimaginable to know that life was moving at the speed of life and I was trying to catch up. But then I question myself, Have I caught up with life or is it slowly passing me by without me even knowing it?. 

Maybe some questions aren’t meant to be answered. Maybe its just a way of life. Maybe its just in the story of growing up. Maybe I just need to stop asking questions and experience life. Maybe, just maybe, I need to follow the plan that God has set for me. Maybe that will work.

Questioning life may seem a little funny but, who doesn’t question life or what is going on in life. This is one of the things that come with age. You start to see life as a blank canvas and that canvas is waiting to be painted. As I have gotten older, I have gotten wiser. Yes I may make mistakes, but who doesn’t, IT’S LIFE.

  1. I think that questioning things is perfectly normal, maybe because I do it all the time myself. I wonder:
    Is this all there is?
    What am I supposed to be now that I’m grown up?
    For what purpose did He send me here and am I anywhere near to realizing that purpose?

    So many questions and not so much time left to answer them really. I don’t feel like I’ve realized my true purpose and feel desperate to find out what it is so that I can fulfill it.

    Grandmas are the best, aren’t they? They are so wise and love unconditionally. It is so very hard to let them go. Even in their passing, they are still teaching us life lessons that we’ll carry with us until we are with them again.

    Have a blessed day!

    1. You are really speaking to me right now. Everything you said is the truth. And I am in between finding out if I really have figured out my life.

      Even though I want to know where I will be as life goes on. I am pretty happy with the unexpected things that comes along with life no matter how good or bad it may be.

      It’s my life!

      Have a blessed day also and thanks for the insight and wisdom!

  2. You’re welcome. I am glad to have given something to you. I feel most of the time like I am flying blind, being of no use to anybody.

    Like you, I want to know…I am no good with the unknown. But, it is sometimes the unexpected things in life that grow us the most. Hopefully, that growing will be for the better, even though it might not feel so good while we’re experiencing it.

    Thank you, too.
