Throughout my life, I have realized there is a plethora of knowledge to learn from our younger generations. I use them as mentors. Much of how we think is based on our emotions, beliefs, wounds, and personal biases. Our lives are a reflection of what we choose to connect with and concentrate on. Real communication only transpires when real active listening is taking place. Often we leave conversations with unexpressed thoughts. If the person you are conversing with leaves you more inspired and empowered than when it started, you have done your job.
Much of our life is arithmetic. We add something and subtract something. I have come to learn all the things we want are not necessarily all the things we need. Trust is becoming more expensive. There are some things in life that you cannot put a monetary value on like genuine and authentic friendships. Friends are not found. Friends are made. Show me your friends, and I will show your future. In the age of information, there is no excuse for not being self-educated. Yet we must not become individuals that do not listen to reason, facts, truth, and evidence.
Remind yourself every day to step beyond the box you have created for your life. The only limitations that ever exist are the ones you create and entertain in your mind. By learning from and letting go of the past, we can improve our future!
