Fail, fail, fail, fail, succeed

Lessons In Aging Part 3

I have a whole lot more yesterdays than you.

This means I’ve had the opportunity of learning from lots more mistakes than you. See how all that failure turns out to be a good thing? I see things as they are, not how I wish them to be. Surprisingly, this opens up possibilities because I can see things more clearly.

I also have a lot fewer tomorrow’s.

This is a tricky one, because it can be a black hole you don’t want to fall into. Understanding this correctly becomes a question of perspective, but when I get it right it prevents me from taking anything for granted.

Because I’ve got fewer days left, they each become more precious.
