Our Age and How We View the World

“A man who views the world at fifty the same as he did at twenty
has wasted thirty years of his life.”
Muhammad Ali

Truer words were never spoken.  If one’s view of the world is unchanged after 30 years of living, there’s a washout in understanding the wisdom, maturation, and learning expected during that span of time.

What one learns, gains, and applies while living during the 30 years, between ages 20 and 50 is substantial and has a significant impact on the future.

It might be wise to ask ourselves how our lives have changed in the last decade (depending on our age).  Have we grown?  Emotionally as well as psychologically?

Was there a turning point?  Was it significant and lasting?  Or was it fast and quickly forgotten? What was wasted?

What experiences were the most meaningful?  Would we have enforced change or made adjustments?  Most importantly, what did we learn?

    So much in my life has changed since I turned 30. I had 2 kids, got divorced and remarried, lost my grandparents, watched my mom die from cancer, changed jobs a few times, and moved. My perspective on life has changed so much. I have grown emotionally in ways I could have never imagined. Before I turn 50 I will see my son graduate from high school and join the Marines. Great post. It makes you think about the good and the bad.

    You have experienced a lot of changes. It’s amazing to see what others go through. It helps to know myself and others are not alone in what we endure.

    Thank you for the post and the questions. Similar questions have been in mind since the past couple years. Many changes have happened in the past decade of my life, and I’d like to think I’ve grown, become more aware of myself, and learned a thing or two about life.

    Lovely approach to the theme. I like to think we can come full circle and apply what we have learned to approach our youthful dreams from a new perspective and with a greater capacity to actualize them.

    I concur with all of these thoughts and as I stated in my last post, the older I get, the more I realize how much I do not know! But I’m opening to learning.

    I can’t imagine not changing in thirty years of living. Some changes in my life were mistakes, but I learned from them and there has been much happiness and goodness that followed. I am still changing and sometimes making mistakes. Happily they are not the whoppers of youth and I learn the lessons faster. Thank you for linking to In Other Words. Your questions are ones to ponder.

    I totally agree! I am dumbfounded by people who show no sign of change, growth or development over the years. Stagnation ia a slow form of dying a little bit each day. Learning is exciting and regenerative! We aren’t really living if we are just coasting along.

Voices on a paper

I often eavesdrop to random voices roaming in the air. Some leave bruises on my eyelids due to the frequent wiping of tears. They have a saddening picture. Others stimulate endless smiles. Some would like to remain unidentified. All in all, I love to narrate stories of the sad, happy and mysterious voices.
