I’m one of those people who consider themselves an “old soul” but never once did I think that I would have the wisdom of a 109 year old.
Just one day after writing my last post “Everything Looks Beautiful” , I was challenged by life, not only physically but also emotionally.
Today the tears have dried but my whole body still aches.
My son’s alarm went off a little before 7AM, waking everyone up but him. Still in bed, I grabbed my phone to check the time. My Facebook account opened and I saw this 1 min video…
It’s short, but says so much. I heard myself in that video and realized that I am on the right track. This made me feel better.
I wouldn’t dare compare my suffering to a holocaust survivor. But what she said, I had once said HERE before and I couldn’t help but to feel wiser, happier and thankful.
It’s surprising how people with such different lives could have the exact same thought. Hearing her say words I had said even if it was coincidental, made me feel validated as an “old soul”.
Not sure I will get to live to 109, but today I sure woke up feeling that age… And it feels good.
