One of the definitions of transition is the process or period of changing from one state or condition to another. Life is one transition after another. When we were children, we acted as children. When we were teenagers, we were reckless adventurers. From young adulthood to middle aged hopefully we were maturing. Now as seasoned adults we have transitioned from foolishness to wisdom.

Can you see how your life has changed with each season? Are you wiser than you were in your 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s?

Looking back on my life there are things that I would do differently, but if I had would I be better off or worse? I will never know the answer to that question, so I don’t entertain it. At some point in your life, you have to tell yourself, It is what it is.

As I transition from middle age to elderly, wisdom has taught me to revel in the freedom of age. I’m enjoying the luxury of it. I get up when I want, I sleep when I want, and I do what I want. Sometimes I think being older is like being a big kid that has money. But being older also has the responsibility of guiding and helping young people of all ages to become the best humans they can be. I’m so grateful that my grown son, who is his own man, still indulges his momma by listening to my views. I know that he will ultimately decide what’s best for him, but he respectfully listens whether he agrees or not.

The best part of aging is if you have done it right, the young people around you will show you the respect that you deserve.
