I feel that I am learning some things as I grow older. For example, I know that I need to take better care of myself. My goal is to lose 10 pounds this year. I only have 14 to go.
I have also learned that women who carry a little extra weight tend to live longer than the men who mention it.
I have learned not to bore kids with stories of how hard I had it when I was their age. They don’t really care that I had to walk 9 feet through a shag carpet to change the TV channel.
I have learned to be satisfied with who I am. I may not be that funny or athletic or good-looking or smart or talented…I forgot where I was going with this.
I have learned that in order to learn something new I must forget five things in order to make room in my brain.
Seriously, let’s keep learning!
“But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”—2 Timothy 3:14-16.
