You’ve Learned Everything
By the time you’re eighty years old you’ve learned everything. You only have to remember it. ~ George Burns
Sometimes it’s the remembering that’s the hardest part! Have you ever walked into a room and not remembered why? Or turned around on your office chair to reach something, gotten interrupted and then blanked? Grrr.
Now then, tell me why we figure things out just as we’re on our last trimester of life? Imagine what we could do if we could figure ourselves out and know about life when we’re younger! I’m 32 and going, Lord, I’ve gone through 1/3 of my life (if I’m lucky). I’m making a determined effort to empower my son and give him a head start on life by avoiding my mistakes.
Let me tell you, this requires brutal honesty and some definite embarrassment.
