Can you gain wisdom from quitting?

“Age wrinkles the body. Quitting wrinkles the soul.” 

 General Douglas MacArthur

Look back on your life and think of a time when you quit something that you now regret. What did you learn from this experience? Does it serve as motivation to carry on and persevere today when faced with challenges? The beauty of age is that you have earned the wrinkles formed by good and bad experiences. If you choose to accept the lesson, you get to show up today better because of what you have learned.

Age is truly a state of a mind…

“I am old but I am forever young at heart. We are always the same age inside. Know that you are the perfect age. Each year is special and precious, you can only live it once. Do not regret growing older, it’s a privilege denied to many!”

Richard Gere

The key to living a life of perpetual youth is to embrace the opportunity to learn and grow each and every day. If you aren’t learning, growing, seeing the world as if through the eyes of a child, then you must by default be dying.  

Life is just too short and precious to waste.  Every single moment we have is a gift for ourselves, and more importantly, for others.   

 Choose to learn, choose to grow, choose to live. Why choose to die before you have to?
