PSA-210105-With Age Comes Wisdom

With the new year just begun the tendency is to extoll wisdom learned. The following list is not mine, it was sent by a friend. The list is so accurate they convey my own thoughts exactly. It must come with age.

1 After loving my parents, my siblings, my spouse, my children and my friends, I have now started loving myself.

 2 I have realized that I am not “Atlas”. The world does not rest on my shoulders.

 3 I have stopped bargaining with vegetable & fruit vendors. A few pennies more is not going to break me, but it might help the poor fellow save for his daughter’s school fees. 

4 I leave my waitress a big tip. The extra money might bring a smile to her face. She is toiling much harder for a living than I am. 

5 I stopped telling the elderly that they’ve already narrated that story many times. The story makes them walk down memory lane & relive their past. 

6 I have learned not to correct people even when I know they are wrong. The onus of making everyone perfect is not on me. Peace is more precious than perfection. 

7 I give compliments freely & generously. Compliments are a mood enhancer not only for the recipient, but also for me. And a small tip for the recipient of a compliment, never, NEVER turn it down, just say “Thank You.” 

8 I have learned not to bother about a crease or a spot on my shirt. Personality speaks louder than appearances. 

9 I walk away from people who don’t value me. They might not know my worth, but I do. 

10 I remain cool when someone plays dirty to outrun me in the rat race. I am not a rat & neither am I in any race. 

11 I am learning not to be embarrassed by my emotions. It’s my emotions that make me human. 

12 I have learned that it’s better to drop the ego than to break a relationship. My ego will keep me aloof, whereas with relationships, I will never be alone. 

13 I have learned to live each day as if it’s the last. After all, it might be the last. 

14 I am doing what makes me happy. I am responsible for my happiness, and I owe it to myself. Happiness is a choice. You can be happy at any time, just choose to be!

 I decided to share this for all my friends. Why do we have to wait to be 60 or 70 or 80, why can’t we practice this at any stage and age?

Old Guys Rule

Old Timer
A banker saw his old friend Tom, an eighty-year old rancher, in town Tom had lost his wife a year or so before; and rumor had it that he was marrying a ‘mail order’ bride.

Being a good friend, the banker asked Tom if the rumor was true.

Tom assured him that it was.

The banker then asked Tom the age of his new bride to be.

Tom proudly said, ‘She’ll be twenty-one in November.’

Now the banker, being the wise man that he was, could see that the sexual appetite of a young woman could not be satisfied by an eighty-year-old man.

Wanting his old friend’s remaining years to be happy the banker tactfully suggested that Tom should consider getting a hired hand to help him out on the ranch, knowing nature would take its own course.

Tom thought this was a good idea and said he would look for one that afternoon.

About four months later, the banker ran into Tom in town again. ‘How’s the new wife?’, asked the banker.

Tom proudly said, ‘Good – she’s pregnant.’

The banker, happy that his sage advice had worked out, continued, ‘And how’s the hired hand?’

Tom said, ‘She’s pregnant too.’

Don’t ever underestimate us old guys.
