Remember the tale of the tortoise & the hare? Which are you? The young, possibly cocky & oh so speedy hare, or are you more like the faithful tortoise who slowly but surely moves forward, one step at a time?
I used to think that it was all about going faster, harder, bigger, better! But- well, there really might be something to this wisdom-comes-with-age business that I used to believe older people were espousing in order to console themselves over the fact that they were no longer faster, harder, bigger, better...
Looks like the jokes on me, because I have finally come to see that not only does wisdom come with age, but, looking back, I was really never faster, harder, bigger, better anyway. It was more like scattered, flaky, overwhelmed & confused. LOL.
"I walk slowly, but I never walk backward." -Abraham Lincoln
An old bull and a young bull were standing on a hilltop, gazing down at a herd of cows below...
The young bull excitedly said to the old bull, "lets run down there and make love to one of them cows!"
The old bull chuckled at the young bull's enthusiasm and said "No, lets walk down and make love to them all."
