I believe that wisdom isn’t necessarily a matter of age or experience, but rather the result of deep thinking, as opposed to distracted thinking.
Last spring my young friend, “Carrie,” started an online diary. The entries are very brief, but the thought behind them is anything but.
They contain far more thought and intelligent conclusions than many folks who have been around decades longer — of course, most people have never asked the questions, let alone thought deeply about them.
Carrie has a brutal schedule, so there are only four entries, which means it will only take a few minutes for you to read them.
Here are a couple of teasers.
Trust me,…Honestly,… But here’s the thing,…
Society has developed a language of layers. We talk in circles that have little points and more layers of why anything and everything happened.
Push or get pushed. Walk or get walked on. Laugh or be laughed at. The concept of survivor of the fittest grows unnaturally in our culture.
However, it will take much longer to follow the thoughts they trigger.
