The two main views in life are looking ahead when you are young and looking back when you are old…the anticipation of youth and the wonders of age.
In youth, we are invincible with the world waiting, as we envision our life ahead. There is nothing we can’t do and no heights we can’t obtain. We are truly invincible!
In aging, we find the idealism of youth a far cry from the reality of our world. No longer invincible, we begin to anticipate our own death, our own reality. We are truly wise!
As the cream always comes to the top, so do the realities of life and the wisdom of age.
