Today I grow 1 year older and I wonder have I also grown 1 year wiser?
I feel being wise has nothing to do with the number of years you have lived. It is more of the extensiveness of my learning experience in a year that is more closely related to being wise or not.
I remember what my father said to me years ago when I took over the family business. He said that I now have an opportunity to have 5 years experience in 5 years or 5 years experience in 2 years. The choice is mine.
This statement had a profound effect on me and now enforces my belief that maturity and wisdom doesn’t come with age.
Thank you mami for being courageous in bringing me into this world and thank you papi for giving me the wisdom to continue living this life of mine.
