Younger Than Ever

This picture reminded me of a life-nugget I once gleaned reading Tuesdays with Morrie where Mitch Albom shares the wisdom garnered from his Tuesday talks with Morrie Schwartz, his former college professor.

Morrie tells Mitch, “I embrace aging”. His positive insight on aging reminds this ever-aging work -in-progress that today I younger than I’m ever gonna’ be again, and to delight in acting accordingly.

Morrie tells Mitch, “The truth is part of me is every age. I’m a three year old, I’m a five year old, I’m a 37 year old, I’m a fifty year old. I’ve been through all of them and I know what it’s like. I delight in being a child when it’s appropriate to be a child. I delight in being a wise old man when it’s appropriate to be a wise old man. Think of all I can be! I’m every age up to my own.”

Some may accuse me of often being stuck in an inappropriate juvenile age bracket, but hey . . . it’s a lot ‘funner’ acting 8 than 78 lotsa’ times 😊

Soooooo . . . how old are you today? Laugh . . . Love . . . and enjoy excavating the childhood joy nugget shrouded in today’s somber ‘adultness’.
