Hard Won Wisdom

In my 50s, I look back and realize nobody cares what your job title is or isn’t. Nobody cares what you own. Most people around you don’t care what you think or know unless it benefits them directly.

What matters is the close relationships you develop where you help each other grow and support who you are. The people who do that are the ones to keep in your life.

My goals have changed. I still grow. I’ve learned you need to keep some of yourself instead of giving it all away. Knowing who you are is a journey not a destination.

Remember the dash on your tombstone stands for how you learned to be your best you and develop real, caring relationships. Money and status doesn’t count.
